By Sarah Walker

Kim Kardashian West has taken to social media to thank hospital staff for the care her son, Saint, received while being treated for pneumonia. The reality TV star, who is married to Kanye West, noted the two-year-old was hospitalized for three days due to the illness.

“My precious baby boy is so strong! After spending three nights in the hospital & seeing my baby get multiple IV’s and hooked up to oxygen machines, our end of year was challenging. Pneumonia is so scary,” she captioned a photo of herself and Saint.

“I just want to thank every nurse & doctor out there who works so hard around the clock. We are so grateful for you all! He’s home and all better. He’s so resilient I’m sure he will still say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong Saint ”

Just days ago, the 37-year-old posted a snap of her son alongside his four-year-old sister, North, and father to celebrate the holidays. It was the famed family's last Christmas celebration as a foursome as Kim and Kanye are set to welcome their third child via surrogate in 2018.

Happy Holidays

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star recently opened up about her relationship with the anonymous woman who is carrying their child, telling The Real: "She didn't know at the beginning, well you can do it totally anonymously. You could go that route, and I just felt like I wanted, whoever's carrying my baby, like what if they weren't a fan of me or my husband? And what if they didn't want to be carrying our baby? I wanted to give them that choice and be proud and on the same page and I wanted a relationship with her."

She added: "She was someone that had watched the show, not like a super fan or anything that it would have been uncomfortable, but she had seen my struggle and seen how open I was about it. So she was really proud to do it, really excited." Kim's sister Khloe is also expecting a baby in 2018 with NBA player, Tristan Thompson. She shared a snap of her baby bump over Christmas, writing: "Merry Christmas! May you sparkle and shine this season, may all of your wishes and dreams come true. I pray that we all may feel this happiness all year round. God bless you! #BabyBump."
