The dentist revealed that one of her sons had been experiencing some health issues right before she left for the reunion, and host Andy Cohen noted that Dr. Heavenly was actually "thinking about not coming" to the sit-down because of that.
"My son is sick. He was admitted to the hospital day before yesterday, but I left my husband [Dr. Damon Kimes] there," Dr. Heavenly said at the beginning of Part 1 of the reunion. "We were at a smaller hospital, and they weren't doing what they should've been doing. And he was able to keep his composure and tell them exactly what to do. And within an hour, my son was fine."
During the reunion, Dr. Heavenly didn't specify which of her sons, Damon Jr. or Zachary, had been feeling ill at the time. She later gave an update on how her son is doing these days while tweeting as Part 1 of the Married to Medicine Season 8 reunion aired. "My son is doing much better," Dr. Heavenly shared, thanking fans for their concern and best wishes.
Dr. Heavenly also showed some love to Dr. Damon for everything he did to help with the situation. "[Dr. Damon] took over at the ER," she added in the tweet. "I’m soo glad he was there."
Because Dr. Damon was by his son's side at the hospital, he was unable to attend this season's reunion, Andy confirmed during Part 1. "I'm sorry we won't be seeing Dr. Damon later," he told Dr. Heavenly while welcoming her to the reunion.
The rest of the Married to Medicine spouses will join their wives and Andy in Part 2 of the reunion, including Dr. Jackie Walters' husband, Curtis Berry, Dr. Simone Whitmore's husband, Cecil Whitmore, Toya Bush-Harris' husband, Dr. Eugene Harris, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe's husband, Dr. Scott Metcalfe, and Anila Sajja's husband, Dr. Kiran Sajja.
