Behold. Some descriptions may scare you. Literally.
Tish Cyrus, Miley Cyrus’ mom, shares that she is still traumatized over what happened several weeks ago after her 18-year-old son, Braison, almost died of tonsil surgery complications. She says:
After five kids I have seen it all. But I had never seen anything like this. It was just crazy.
On July 5, Tish and husband, Billy Ray, took their son to the hospital to have his tonsils removed. She recalls that though the doctor said that “everything went great” and that he could go home, her son started spewing blood nine days after the surgery. In panic, Mommy Cyrus drove her son to the nearest hospital, where doctors and nurses were completely shocked at the sight of the bleeding teen. She shares:
They started doing everything they could to get the bleeding stopped. The blood was just pouring out of his mouth. He was choking on his own blood! It was so traumatizing. You think a tonsillectomy is no big deal! But it was full-blown hemorrhaging. They took him back into the operating room and stitched up the bleeding artery.
Braison was stitched up and got to go home the next day, which was when he got to tweet a photo of himself (with blood all over) in the hospital. Tish shares:
In the picture, he has a smile on his face, because he was so happy to be alive.
Though Miley’s brother is now at home doing “well.” Psychologically, the teen is still pulling it together.
Whew! Get well soon, Braison!
