TEEN Mom Briana DeJesus updated fans on her daughter's health after the toddler was rushed to the hospital.
The reality star has previously been open about her daughter's numerous health concerns over the years.
Fans grew worried about the three-year-old after Briana shared a clip on her Instagram Stories of Stella lying in a hospital bed.
In the short video, Briana captured her youngest child eating an apple while watching TV in her hospital room.
The toddler seemed to be unfazed as she pulled her mask beneath her chin to munch on the snack.
The concerned mom captioned the post: "The most stressful yet relaxing visit yet"
While the mom-of-two didn't provide any details on her daughter's condition, she did share an update with her Twitter followers shortly after.
"Stella's okay hospital let us go home but we have a cardiologist appointment next week to get a closer look," she explained in a tweet.
Stella has had her fair share of medical encounters in her little life, after being rushed into emergency surgery for a serious bacterial infection when she was just one.
Briana also revealed that her daughter was born with three holes in her heart, though her heart murmurs did disappear after a few hospital trips.
Back in January the Teen Mom 2 star, 27, admitted she now gets "the worst anxiety" whenever her baby girl shows any signs of illness.
"I have some sort of PTSD with Stella," Briana tweeted.
"She used to get sick every other weekend when she was a baby so any sign of her looking, sounding or acting sick, I get the worst anxiety.
"Blessed to say she hasn’t gotten sick like before but I literally get so scared."
Back in 2018, the young mom rushed Stella – then one – to the hospital with septic arthritis.
Septic arthritis – also known as a joint infection – is joint inflammation and can cause fever, chills, severe joint pain and a decreased ability to move.
Briana said Stella had a fever of 104 degrees the week before and had difficulty moving her left arm.
"I thought maybe she had an accident at daycare," the reality star told Us Weekly at the time.
Doctors found the toddler had fluid in her joints and needed to have surgery to drain it.
"The doctor says nobody really knows how one gets it. A simple bug bite or scratch can open up flesh and bacteria can travel," Briana said.
The TV star had another emotional moment with the little one in February during a trip to the dentist.
The reality star tweeted earlier today: "I really have ptsd with Stella. Literally broke down at the dentist because they had to numb her tooth and it involved a needle.
"Brought me back to when she needed emergency surgery and so many different emotions kicked in… lol I bawled," she revealed.
Following the procedure, fans showed concern when Briana posted a photo of Stella with a nebulizer covering her face.
The toddler looked in high spirits as she rested with the equipment covering her nose and mouth.
Wearing a dark blue tee shirt and light blue fluffy jacket, the child seemed relaxed despite her condition.
Briana rested her hand on her daughter's face and captioned the photo: “My baby."
Though the TV personality did not offer an explanation for the frightening snap, fans believed it to be due to asthma.
The MTV star shares Stella with her ex, Luis Hernandez.
She also has a 10-year-old daughter, Nova with ex Devoin Austin.
