In May of 2022, Deavan Clegg revealed her son Taeyang’s leukemia diagnosis.
He immediately began treatments in an effort to aggressively combat the cancer.
Now, after a year and a half, he’s seeing major progress. Much of his hair has regrown, and he’s doing better.
However, Deavan shared a recent health scare that could signal a real setback. We’re rooting for you, Taeyang!
Just a few days ago, Deavan took to her Instagram Story to share an update.
“Today we had his normal blood work checkup,” she wrote. “His white blood cells are low and he is showing signs of croup.”
Croup is an infection of the upper airway. The life-saving treatment that this precious boy has been receiving can increase his vulnerability to other ailments.
“They are stopping chemotherapy treatment for one week to see if that helps with his counts,” Deavan explained.
“We are hoping he starts to feel better,” she then affirmed.
“If not,” Deavan acknowledged as part of her early December update, “he might have another stay at the hospital.”
In November, Deavan (and her mother, Elicia Clegg) shared Taeyang’s Make A Wish trip to Disneyland.
(We want to emphasize that, contrary to what some people believe, Make A Wish is not exclusively for terminally ill children. Taeyang’s condition is life-threatening, but like many Make A Wish recipients, he could recover and go on to lead a health life one day)
Clearly, he felt overjoyed at the trip. And big sis Drascilla (she’s grown up so much!) was there with him.
There have been a lot of ups and downs in Taeyang’s health recently.
A few months earlier, in August, Deavan shared that Taeyang was in the hospital with a 103.6 degree fever.
“His counts have been low the past two weeks so his doctor had him stop his treatment until he could get better,” she shared with fans and followers at the time.
Obviously, there have been many other updates — some happy and joyous, others painful and downright scary — over the past year and a half.
Taeyang is going through an ordeal that will shape the course of his life.
We all hope that he makes a full and rapid recovery from his b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
To say that Deavan did not really have a good experience on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way would be an understatement.
Her relationship with Jihoon was toxic, and ended with him allegedly committing a vicious act of domestic violence. Additionally, irresponsibly dishonest editing had both Deavan and then-preschool-aged Drascilla the targets of hate and violent threats from ‘fans.”
Now, Deavan has moved on. She has a new man and a new life. Taeyang is an absolute treasure and deserves a full recovery and a full life.
