Stacey continued: “Thank you for your loveliness all week. I love you all.

“I’m going to rest this bump and my swollen hooves. I think I could sleep for a week.”

Addressing her little man, she added: “Pickle, we love you to the moon and back always.”

What happened to Stacey’s son Rex?

Stacey’s “nightmare” began earlier in the week when Rex fell over while playing in the garden.

At the time, Stacey said her fiancé Joe Swash was left “in tears”.

Rex was initially patched up with adhesive butterfly strips before returning to hospital for a small operation.

But after being stitched up inside his mouth following an overnight stay, Rex’s temperature spiked.

Doctors then told worried Stacey to take him back into hospital.

At the time, she told her 4.5 Instagram followers: “Aw guys we are back in triage because Rex’s temperature has been spiking tonight.

“They’re sure it’s all okay but because he’s little and post-op they won’t take any risks, so it looks like we are in for the long haul tonight.

“It’s been the longest, most emotional week. I honestly don’t know how I’ve even got one eyelash still on.”

Thankfully, it looks like Rex is finally on the mend, meaning Stacey can finally get some well-earned rest!
