Ryan Libbey ‘holding on by a thread’ as Louise Thompson is readmitted to hospital

Former Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson has been readmitted to hospital just hours after she made a heartbreaking post on Instagram after receiving some alarming test results.

Sharing the news of her admission, fiancé Ryan Libbey posted from the hospital on Thursday night as he explained he was “devastated” by the news and confessed he was “holding on by a thread” to keep his own composure.

Sharing a picture of himself donning a cap and mask, Ryan could be seen alone in the corridor as Louise underwent treatment from the doctors, with the entire experience almost harkening back to last year, when she nearly died in childbirth.

Ryan wrote: "Just as I thought I was approaching a time period where I could focus some energy into my own therapy and healing, Louise unfortunately still struggles with various things every single day and some of those symptoms are worsening.

"We're now back at the hospital (this time private as we've been so let down by the NHS) because Louise has received some alarming blood test results.”

Expressing his own distress at being powerless in the situation, Ryan continued: "At this moment I don't know how serious this is, but it feels devastating to be sat outside a hospital waiting room, seven months on from Louise giving birth.

"I'm holding on by a thread, trying to work, keep business alive, earn money to support Louise and Leo, trying to keep up with my own ambitions (and failing)."

Concluding his post, Ryan said: “It’s not like me to share stories like this but I feel so s*** at the moment. Maybe this unload will help.”

Ryan’s outpouring of vulnerability came just hours after Louise had shared some of her own, expressing her frustration at doctors ignoring her physical health – and how her anxiety had been compounded by a recent set of concerning test results.

Louise opened up with fans early on Thursday morning when she wrote: "When I spoke to my psychiatrist she told me to make sure that any physical health doctors I see take my concerns seriously.

"I don't want to just be labelled as 'mentally unwell' – I feel that I'm often overlooked.

"Anyway, I just got some recent blood test results back that I had to pay for privately and my iron and haemoglobin levels are low which is incredibly triggering.

"To be honest quite a few of them are either too high or too low which I find incredibly triggering too.”

Prior to her emotional post on Instagram, Louise has been open in recent months about her struggle to combat depression and PTSD in the wake of the birth of her son.

The 31 year old welcomed baby Leo-Hunter in November last year, but suffered from complications during birth and was left fighting for her life in intensive care for 5 weeks.

The incredibly difficult experience has left the star with PTSD and has also lead to anxiety, depression and to panic attacks, which have severely impacted her life.
