Heather Dubrow may have sent fellow Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney to the hospital, but this week it was Heather’s son, Nicholas, who really had a reason to get checked up — and he ended up in a cast!

“Thank you SO much to our dear friend Dr.Scott Forman for taking care of Nicky!! #sever'sdisease #inflammationofthegrowthplate #castfortwoweeks,” Heather posted to Instagram, along with the above photo of a smiling Nicholas in the hospital.

Sever’s Disease is a painful bone disorder that typically happens to kids at the onset of puberty when children are growing rapidly, so we’re hoping Nicholas is alright. That doesn’t sound fun at all, but it does mean he’s growing up! At least he seems to be in good spirits about the whole thing, despite his mom oversharing his problems on social media!

Tamra, however, was less than happy when she left the hospital following last episode’s hoedown incident. If you’ve forgotten, Tamra went to ride the mechanical bull at Heather’s groundbreaking party (naturally), and Heather told the ride operator to turn the bull all the way up. Tamra was thrown from the bull and wound up in the hospital with a badly sprained arm. Ouch!

Do you think Tamra will get justice for the bull incident? Are you as excited for the reunion show as we are? Sound off in the comments!

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
