Jimmie Allen’s 6-Week-Old Daughter Home from Hospital Following Health Scare

Jimmie Allen’s 6-week-old daughter is home following a recent health scare that left her hospitalized for five days.

Allen’s wife, Alexis, shared the news via her Instagram Story on Sunday writing, “We’re going home 🤍,” alongside a photo of Zara James.

She later took the time to describe their ordeal and thank the EMTs who saved her daughter’s life in an Instagram post:

Time has slowed down for me this past week. I’ve been able to be present and more aware of the things around me. You never really think about the bad days you may go through with a child until you’re right in those moments. On Tuesday night I was traveling on the tour bus from Nash to be closer to family knowing that Jimmie had a busy week with work. I wanted to be closer to him and have that support. Zara had been resting the majority of the ride but around 10pm she woke up with a coughing fit for well over 10 mins. Knowing this is something we went through before, I decide to turn the shower on and let the steam help open her airways up a bit. Tried suctioning. Chest rubs. Nothing seemed to work. At 10:30 Zara was unresponsive in my arms and turning color as we frantically ask our drivers to pull over and call 911. The longest 15 minutes of my life. My baby was so so tired her muscles had given up on her. I did everything under the sun to keep her awake and thank god it seemed to work. She was soon in the ambulance with oxygen and finally started to regain her color.

To the 3 EMT’s who saved my daughters life. I never got your names but I am so unbelievably thankful for you. To the nurses, respiratory therapist and doctors at U of M Shore Medical & AI DuPont – thank you for continuing to find answers and providing amazing care to my baby.

To my community- THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the outpouring love and prayers you have given our family, I could not have got through this without your messages and support.

Jimmie thank you for showing up & being here for your children, ALWAYS. I truly don’t know how you do it but you always find a way!

Mommies & daddies please go with your gut instinct. I wish I would’ve taken action sooner but I am so incredibly thankful to have another day of being her mama.
