Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Gives Health Update On Her Daughter Dove 3 Months After Neurosurgery!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave shared an update on her daughter Dove’s health after being diagnosed with lambdoid carniosynostosis and undergoing neurosurgery in July.

“She’s doing great. She’s wearing the DOC band, which is the helmet,” she told Moms Like Us host Christina Garibaldi and Stroller in the City’s Brianne Manz, according to Us Weekly. “The first couple of days, it’s always a little rough ’cause they have to get used to [it on their] skin and it’s hot, but she’s doing great.”

Teddi said she couldn’t imagine her or her husband, Edwin Arroyave, going through the same thing as their newborn.

“Babies are so resilient. It was so hard leading up to it,” she said. “If myself or my husband [were] going through that, what would [we] have been like? She just wanted to be held and loved and you know, she pushed. Such a fighter.”

The former RHOBH star revealed Dove’s diagnosis five months after her birth. “I’m glad we caught it when we did because had we not, we’d be in an even tougher situation,” she told Us Weekly.
