Speaking with a ton of emotion and tears in her eyes, the reality star revealed:
"There were nights where Gigi, at three o'clock in the morning, had to drive me to the emergency room because I had such severe inflammation in my brain that I'd be balling on the floor like please take me to the hospital. So you know, and not just Gigi driving, Anwar and Bella in the back of the car and the three of us going to the hospital. And, them being there, they learn to take charge and be my strength."
Wow. What harrowing and difficult stuff.
Obviously, the situation got so bad for the blonde that at points that she wished she weren't alive. It was in those moments that she expressed thanks for Anwar, Bella, and Gigi Hadid:
"My children is what kept me alive. I remember just waiting for them to get out of school, just to give them a hug and look at them for hope. There were many days that I really didn't want to live anymore. But when you look at your children it's not a choice anymore, right? You have to. You have to get through. You have to keep fighting and searching to get well."
So heartbreaking. At least Y.F. is beginning to come out stronger.
Keep your head up, Yolanda!
