“Teen Mom 2” Leah Messer Ignores Doctor’s Orders for Daughter Ali
In a recent sneak peek for “Teen Mom 2” Leah speaks about daughter Ali’s muscular dystrophy disease and treatment. Ali’s doctor advised Leah that “I think that she needs to have [a] power wheelchair all the time,” and added “Her strength is still quite decent, but once she’s getting to age seven, then gradually, the maturity affects her. Then she may very slowly get weaker.”
Leah says that “No matter what, I may never see the decline that they see. I guess I’ll handle that when it comes,” and continued “She’s gonna do whatever she wants to do, you can’t look into the future and tell.” Regarding the doctor’s advice on wheelchair use Leah reveals that “I’ve been trying to make her use it as much as possible,” and “I feel like she should have that option, like I’m not going to tell her, “No, you can’t walk.’ You’ve got to be out of your f**king mind! I’m not going to tell my child that if she wants to.” Leah also feels that “I can’t allow her to push herself too far,” as Ali has a tendency to do.
It’s a hard decision for a young mother to make, following the advice of a doctor or doing what your heart says is right. The main focus is for Ali to have every opportunity to fight this disease the best way she can to have the optimal outcome.
