Tough guy! Kim Zolciak couldn’t help but gush over son Kash after revealing he underwent reconstructive facial surgery in November for injuries from a dog bite in 2017.
Zolciak added that the family “had a rough couple days” amid Kash’s latest surgery and recovery, revealing that she sought prayers from those close to her and even went crying to a personal trainer friend. She asked him “if [Conor McGregor] (Kash’s all time favorite fighter) could send an encouraging message to Kash.” What she got back overwhelmed her.
“Conor’s video had me in tears I could barely speak, I mean it’s CONOR MCGREGOR but it was also his MESSAGE,” she wrote on social media as she shared the clip.
The champion fighter said: “I heard you had a match with a dog and you won. So congratulations on that victory. I plan on securing my own victory January 23. I’m here now isolated away getting my work in taking inspiration from your victory, Kash. Thank you so much and congratulations on the win.”
“I had the leaf blower on my back. Sinn [the family’s rescue dog] doesn’t like the blower so he was already on high alert,” the 35-year-old recalled. “[Kash] pulls his hands down and there’s multiple lacerations. I can’t see his eye. All I see is dark. … I know that it’s a very dire emergency.”
The then-5-year-old was hospitalized for four days and underwent emergency surgery. He had eight stitches to save his eye and Zolciak said at the time that the surgeon who operated on Kash was “pleased with his progress.”
