Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's daughter Dove is officially in the next phase of her recovery following neurosurgery this past summer. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum shared that the baby is now wearing a helmet. And she's getting support from her family, including her uncle, Hud Mellencamp.
"In this house, no one wears a helmet alone," Teddi wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of Hud rocking a football helmet while Dove wears her helmet.
The photo of Dove in her helmet comes shortly after it was confirmed that she was ready to embark on that part of her recovery. "Mom mentioned many of you asking for an update, so I wanted to log on and let you all know I am one tough cookie. It’s been two and a half months since my surgery and I am feeling good!” an October 2 Instagram reads. "Today is the day I get my helmet, so I figured I’d throw on a bow one last time before I rock that new style for the next six months! Thanks for all the well wishes and love sent my way. It’s much appreciated."
In addition to getting her helmet, in other big Dove news from this past weekend, she also went on her first airplane trip to Indiana.
Teddi revealed that Dove had been diagnosed with Lambdoid Craniosynostosis in early July and several weeks later the RHOBH alum confirmed that the tot had completed the necessary corrective procedure.
“Thank you for all your prayers. Baby Dove had a successful surgery,” she wrote on Instagram on July 31. “So much gratitude to her amazing surgeons Dr. Danielpour and Dr. Urata and all the loving nurses that will continue to help us care for her as she recovers. We are forever grateful.”
