Megyn Kelly spoke on Monday’s Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast about Thatcher’s spleen lacerations resulting in internal bleeding and admission to the ICU.

Kelly began her show with the revelation that she had been gone for a part of last week, and that her son Thatcher, 8, was injured while skiing in Montana.

“Thank God he’s okay, so let me start with the lead. And did the run just fine. … But was inspired by this cave-like structure that was on the run to check it out,” Kelly told her listeners.

Her son and his instructor got to a more advanced part where they had to “hike up to … and take a little break,” saying her son became tired and “apparently didn’t have the strength to make the climb.”

“And he fell. And I get in the ambulance. He seems okay. He’s speaking he says he fell ten feet and landed on some rocks while hiking up this part of the mountain. But he’s got an IV in him.”

“So we get to the hospital and they say they need to run some tests.”

Afterward, the hospital performed a CT scan and discovered that “lo and behold there was internal bleeding.”

“And he had lacerated, had to two severe lacerations to his spleen and a third the size of which they weren’t able to determine, she continued. “So, three tears of his spleen…and he was bleeding internally and they said you need to go to a more serious hospital right now.”

When they returned to the ambulance, they went to the other hospital and were told to “whisk him into the ICU.” At that point, she said, she wondered what the heck was going on. A very nice nurse finally offered Kelly a seat and told her that the tears to the spleen were “very severe” and there was a good chance he might lose his spleen. When the surgeon arrived, he said he hoped Thatcher wouldn’t “lose his spleen” but that if the bleeding continued, they would remove it.

In that moment, Kelly and Doug contacted their doctors back home for advice, admitting they had no idea what to do. The doctor advised her not to lose the spleen and suggested other alternatives instead.

They said it was a level 3 trauma center, not one of the top trauma centers, and at one point they were considering ordering a med-evac to take him to a level one trauma center with a pediatrician or a radiologist to “repair the spleen.”

“Our surgeon was saying ‘don’t move him … he needs to be in the ICU, he needs to be in the hospital bed,’” Kelly went on. “‘And he is not allowed to even get up and go to the bathroom. He can not leave the bed.’ Because the bleeding’s not stopping. We don’t want him to lose the spleen. If there’s any way of repairing it we’d like to do that. But it’s not safe to move him. We’re looking into the med-evac flights.”

A decision was made not to move him, and the trauma center found an interventional radiologist, who was not a pediatric specialist, but in the event that something went wrong, that person would be able to assist in that case. As things leveled off after a few more terrifying moments, things began to improve for him. She said six days after her son was admitted to the hospital, they were able to let him go home.

At that time, Kelly broke down during the show and became emotionally distraught about the distressing experience their entire family had gone through.

“You know, the amount of stress and the love that you have for your children,” Kelly said with tears in her eyes. “And the fragility of these little bodies who totally depend on you. And the enormous responsibility you have for their well-being you know for making huge decisions. And the importance of family and friends right, and good colleagues.”

Grabbing a tissue and blotting her eyes, she described how it left her thinking about the saying a guest once remarked to her — that the only thing that matters in life is “within 15 feet of you” – and she told how she found that to be true. She also thanked her audience for the “connection” they had afforded her that was “valuable” to her.

As the author of Settle for More noted, “it must be so hard” to be a single parent, she praised the support she got from her 50-year-old husband.

Her children often go to their dad instead of her when they’re feeling down, the political commentator exclusively told Us Weekly in October 2018.

“I’m mad when a child comes into the room in the middle of the night, and they go to [his] side of the bed and not mine. I’m holding it against [him],” Kelly joked then. “But I can express that to him, and he can hear it, and then we can have a talk about it.”

In March 2008, the couple got married in New York after becoming engaged earlier in the year.
