What a scary ordeal for Anna Cardwell and her 4-year-old daughter Kaitlyn!
According to TMZ, Anna’s little girl just underwent surgery to have the extra thumb on her right hand removed. The Honey Boo Boo star and her husband Michael Cardwell made the decision last August over fears that Kait would be bullied as she got older.
In a pained Facebook post about the choice, Cardwell wrote:
Well, the Georgia resident ultimately had to what was best for her daughter. We imagine it wasn’t an easy decision to make!
As for how Kaitlyn is doing, the surgery went exceptionally well. The kiddo will have to wear a cast for six months but other than that, she’s golden!
On a more lighthearted note, we can’t help but relive Honey Boo Boo and Mama June‘s reaction to the extra digit… check out the RIDICULOUS throwback clip (below)!
