Former first daughter Ivanka Trump shared some worrisome news about an incident involving one of her young sons that resulted in a trip to a hospital.
Trump revealed in a social media post that her 6-year-old son Theo broke his wrist at school and further lamented that she had been unable to immediately respond to the accident because she had been somewhere else about an hour away, the Conservative Brief reported.
Thankfully, however, aside from the pain the young boy will undoubtedly initially experience as he heals, he should otherwise be just fine.
Ivanka’s son briefly hospitalized
“This week I received a call from the school nurse that every parent dreads,” Ivanka Trump wrote in an Instagram post on Sunday. “My 6-year-old son Theo broke his wrist while playing soccer.”
“Since I was over an hour’s drive away, an ambulance took Theo, accompanied by the school nurse, to the closest hospital. Jared and I raced to meet him, Jared arriving at the same time as the ambulance and me getting there a few minutes later,” she continued.
“It was a bad break, but the capable EMT, doctors, nurses and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital staff cared for Theo tenderly and professionally,” Trump wrote.
She then proceeded to reveal that Theo’s spirits were lifted by his receiving “two ice pops” as a treat that prompted him to declare that “this is the best day ever!” and was quite pleasing to the nurses who worked there.
“Jared and I are so grateful to the doctors, nurses, EMTs, and hospital staff who cared for our son. With gratitude in our hearts, we have made a donation to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital,” Trump added along with a link for others to donate to the hospital if they so desired as well as two pictures of her son smiling at the hospital and getting some much-needed sleep later at home.

Haters are gonna hate
Of course, Ivanka Trump — or really any member of the Trump family, for that matter — cannot say or do anything without being sharply criticized and attacked by haters.
In this instance, according to Newsweek, the former president’s eldest daughter was critiqued for having her son rushed to the hospital in an ambulance with EMTs and the school nurse for a broken wrist, which some asserted may have diverted limited resources that others with worse injuries or health issues may have needed.
Trump was also slammed for being so far away and unable to respond immediately to her son’s accident, with the clear, if likely false, insinuation that she is a bad mother, as well as for publicly announcing her charitable donation to the hospital.
And, predictably, there were also attacks aimed vicariously through her at her father, former President Donald Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, over a variety of issues.
That said, the critical comments were more than outweighed by numerous messages of support and prayers for a speedy recovery for Trump and her injured son.
