Kim Zolciak’s 4-Year-Old Son, Kash, Undergoes Emergency Surgery After Being Bitten by Dog

A scary moment. Kim Zolciak revealed on Instagram on Sunday, April 23, that her son Kash underwent emergency surgery after he was bitten by a dog over the weekend.

“I don’t know where to start. The last 14hrs of our lives has been a living nightmare,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 38, captioned a heartbreaking photo of Kash, 4, lying in a hospital bed. “My sweet @kashbiermann was bit by a dog and had very traumatic injuries. I’ve never prayed so hard, or been so scared in my life. My husband [Kroy Biermann], our daughters, Kj, Tracey, his nanny, Michael Beck, and everyone close to us all pulled together and held each other up.”

The former Bravo star — who is also mom of Brielle, 20, Ariana, 15, Kroy, 5, and twins Kane and Kaia, 3 — came under fire earlier this year when she posted a Snapchat photo of a questionnaire that Kash filled out for school. For the assignment, the young child wrote that he loves dad Biermann, 31, because “he lets me hold his real gun.” Zolciak didn’t seem to mind as she captioned the post, “I [love] this!”
