Lucy Mecklenburgh reveals son Roman takes daily medication after health scare


Lucy Mecklenburgh shared the collection of medicines her son Roman has been taking since becoming sick with a virus earlier this year.

The 30-year-old and her fiancé Ryan Thomas rushed their one-year-old son to hospital after he turned blue in his cot and couldn’t breathe properly.

Lucy previously opened up about how Roman uses an inhaler multiple times throughout the day due to the virus and took to Instagram to give a more detailed look at the medication the toddler requires.

One photo posted to Instagram Stories showed numerous bottles of medicine along with inhalers and what appeared to be syringes laid out on a surface.

“Roman’s medication at the moment,” Lucy captioned. “I don’t know who hates this more, me or him.”

It seems the stress of monitoring her young son’s health is taking its toll on the reality star as she revealed to her 1.7 million followers the reality of her situation.

Lucy is currently expecting her second child with Ryan after welcoming their son Roman in March 2020.

Earlier this month, she discussed on the Snot, Sweat and Tears podcast how harrowing it was for her to find her firstborn fighting for breath before they swiftly took him to hospital.

“I heard sort of grumbles at 3am and like I think we all do, well if they’re not sounding like it’s a big scream and they’re in pain, you think, ‘Oh well they’re just having a little dream,’” she said.

“I watched him on the monitor and he seemed fine, and at 4am something didn’t feel right.

“He was moving very slowly, side to side, and I thought, ‘This doesn’t feel right and I want to go and see him.’”

Lucy went on to thank Basildon Hospital and St Mary’s Hospital for treating her son and became emotional as she recalled the experience for her as a parent as the doctors tended to Roman.

“They absolutely were wonderful and I need to thank them and the ambulance service for arriving so promptly, for keeping my son here and it’s, um… God it’s quite emotional actually, talking about that,” she said.

The expectant mother believes that her son not being exposed to simple viruses due to lockdown last year could be the cause of his infections as his immune system has not been as prepared against illnesses.

“Roman was born ten days before Covid and because he was kept so isolated – literally isolated for six months – he didn’t have the chance to fight off viruses,” she added.

“When he was in hospital, the test came back that he had six viruses, so that’s what his little body was having to fight and that’s potentially why he was so poorly and got to the stage of needing a ventilator.

“It does make you think, if he had been in a normal world at the beginning, would he have been able to fight those viruses. Would he have already fought them off. Do you know what I mean? He wouldn’t have had six at once.”
