Alfonso Ribeiro and his wife, Angela Ribeiro, have provided updates on the status of their daughter, Ava Sue, through social media.
According to accounts, the little girl needed emergency surgery on Friday, May 12 to avoid scarring after falling off her sit-down scooter only one day before her fourth birthday.
Alfonso complimented the medical staff at Kare MD Skin Health while sharing images of his daughter’s wounds, which included major bruises and serious burns on her right elbow, shoulder, and around her right eye. He also expressed delight in Ava’s bravery.
Not the kind of day one desires the day before turning four, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor said on Instagram. He’d like to express his deepest gratitude to [Kare MD Skin Health] for the emergency service and treatment that helped reduce the probability of [scarring]. He is so proud of his baby girl for being so strong during the surgery.
Meanwhile, Ava’s mother, Angela, went into further detail about her daughter’s accident, admitting that she had a horrible feeling that morning that Ava would end up in danger.
She described it as “a vision/motherly intuition” and wrote that she told the family, kids, sitter, and friends who were helping her prepare for Ava’s birthday party that they were not doing anything crazy or dangerous today that could potentially end up with an ER visit. When she said these words, she practically made everyone’s eyes lock on her.
Angela’s comments, however, were evidently not taken seriously enough, for Ava crashed from her scooter not long after she disclosed her warning.
Following the event, Ava was brought to Kare MD Skin Health – and Dr. Raffy after hours in order to reduce the possibility of future scarring.
Not a fun way to spend one’s last day as a 3-year-old, but she was a trooper, Angela said. Giving this sweet girl some extra cuddles tonight.
Meanwhile, the Kare MD Skin Health team turned to Instagram on May 12 to wish Ava a happy birthday.
Thank you for the very kind words [Alfonso]. We are so honored to take care of your precious princess Ava. Best wishes for a speedy recovery,” they wrote in the caption.
I believe we can all agree that it is always scary when one of our infants is injured. I’m glad Alfonso and Angela’s child is recovering nicely!
Do you recall your kid being in a terrible accident? What were your emotions like at the time?
