June 12 (UPI) — Tamra Judge’s husband returned to the hospital Monday for his fifth heart procedure.
Judge, 50, took to Instagram Stories ahead of Eddie Judge’s second ablation, a non-surgical procedure to remove scar tissue inside the heart.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star shared a photo of herself holding Eddie’s hand from beside his hospital bed. The ablation was her husband’s fifth heart procedure in six months.
“Praying this will be the end of @eddiejudge heart condition,” Judge captioned the post. “#ablation#2 I love you babe.”
Judge posted a picture earlier in the day of Eddie’s hat resting on a model of a heart.
“Good thoughts,” she wrote, adding a heart emoji.
Eddie underwent a cardioversion, a procedure involving electrical shocks to to the heart, in December for AFib, or atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat. He has since had two more cardioversions and one other ablation.
“As I sit in the waiting room I need everyone to pray for @eddiejudge,” Judge wrote on Instagram in April. “another Cardio version 4th heart procedure in 4 months. I want my healthy husband back. #powerofprayer Thank you.”
Eddie completed a Spartan obstacle course race Saturday in Monterey County, Calif. He said on Instagram that his AFib affected his performance in the event.
“I held everyone back today because of Afib. My team who I inspired to become a Spartan was there supporting my every break and every weakness I felt running this course. This was not about finishing first. It was about just finishing as a team,” the star said.
