Karen and Deon tried their best to put on a brave face for their family, but over a course of some months, things started to crumble down as the family felt the emotions get the better of them
Karen and Deon Derrico had been praying for Dawsyn Derico to get better, and in the latest episode (Tuesday, September 15) the pair revealed she has to undergo another surgery. Dawsyn was born with a hole in her heart and the doctors had revealed that she would have to undergo two surgeries.
The news had left Karen and Deon shocked as they did not expect to hear bad news on the day when their triplets were born. Despite this, the family decided to keep strong. Karen and Deon tried their best to put on a brave face for their family, but over a course of some months, things started to crumble down as the family felt the emotions get the better of them. Karen and Deon admitted it was hard to see their daughter in such a state. To make things worse, after losing their child before, the family feared history repeating. Deon became distant and tried not to form a bond in the hope of not getting hurt. However, as time went by, he decided to step in for his family.
The latest episode showed Dawsyn going into surgery for the second time. Karen feared what might happen as the last time Dawsyn was in the hospital, she had started associating touch with pain. Karen felt guilty about putting her daughter in the same condition once again. She became emotional when she saw Dawsyn getting injections. Since Karen felt difficulty hiding her emotions, she decided to walk out of the room. Deon decided to step up and take charge of things. However, he too was feeling emotions rushing through him. Deon felt exhausted and upset about how things were shaping up.
It led to him asking God where the surgery would lead them. Deon prayed that this would be the last time they would have to come to the hospital for surgery. Luckily, God happened to hear their prayer and it was revealed that Dawsyn's surgery was a successful one. The doctors revealed she would have to be in the hospital for two weeks to recover. After hearing the good news, Karen and Deon decided to celebrate two birthdays for Dawsyn. The first was would be the day she was born and the second one would be on the day when she got her heart surgery done. Karen called it "heart day" as she added that they were looking forward to welcoming Dawsyn and starting a new life.
