The 37-year-old mum-of-one said that they did not think twice before getting their little one to hospital.

‘When it has to do with breathing, you don’t think twice, you just take them to the hospital so that is what we did,’ Kyly told the publication.

The ex-cricketer revealed the distressing news on social media, and shared a short video to Instagram which showed the sickly tot sitting in what appeared to be an emergency room.

‘My little girl is still not doing well,’ the cricketing great captioned. 

In the short clip, Michael’s wife Kyly was seen in the background, rifling through a bag of supplies. 

Meanwhile, little Kelsey-Lee appeared to be in high spirits despite her illness, as she played with a plush toy and inspected the inside of her mother’s handbag.

The dash to hospital comes just nine months after Kelsey-Lee battled a separate bout of bad health.
