Country music singer Jimmie Allen’s 5-week-old daughter was rushed to a Tennessee hospital Tuesday night after she “stopped breathing,” the singer said.
“Attention doctors, if the parent of your one-month-old patient tells you the child having a hard time breathing and the only thing your lazy self wants to do is check heart and temperature, find another career. Your job is to save lives so do it,” Allen, who won New Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards this month, tweeted.
“Now thanks to the lazy doctors at a hospital in TN that just sent our daughter home, our daughter Zara lost color stopped breathing and is being rushed to another hospital,” the tweet continued. “Thanks to the amazing EMT team that brought back Zara’s color she can breath again. Gonna be a rough night.”
One day earlier, Allen’s wife, Alexis Allen, posted on social media, writing, “Turned away by hospital yesterday a.m. Ambulance at 2 a.m. Basically, if your child isn’t blue at the lips, they will not have answers for you. That’s been my last 24 hours.”
Allen and his wife married in May and announced daughter Zara’s arrival in mid-October.
Allen’s wife had previously posted about Zara and the couple’s other daughter Naomi, 20 months, struggling with undisclosed illnesses.
“Two sick babies,” the girls’ mother wrote on her Instagram story, which included Zara on her chest. “One exhausted mama.”
Earlier this month, Allen became the second Black artist to win the sought-after New Artist of the Year trophy.
During this month’s Country Music Association Awards, Allen and his band performed his latest single, “Freedom Was A Highway.”
