It’s been over a week now that Kanye West has been in the hospital, suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation that led to bouts of paranoia, which have him reportedly under constant watch for his safety. While his wife Kim Kardashian has been by his side as much as possible, even helping to feed him, she’s apparently “very worried” about her children, North and Saint, seeing their father in his current state — and the reason will totally break your heart.

I ❤️ my family

It’s surely a nearly unbearable time for Kim, who not only recently suffered a terrifying attack during a Paris robbery, but is also bearing the brunt of the unsure future of her family’s reality series while also having to care for her children and ailing husband.

Kim, who is reportedly feeling completely “overwhelmed” and who also witnessed her own father’s health suffer before his passing, now has deep concerns about protecting her children during this difficult time. “The kids have not visited,” a source told People, with another person close to the family revealing, “She is very worried about the kids being around Kanye.”

Her reason for this difficult decision surely has everything to do with Kanye’s current erratic behavior. Kim is apparently worried about Kanye’s relationship with their children, who are still just three years old and 11 months. With the littles at a totally impressionable age, Kim doesn’t want any harm to come to their lasting bond with their daddy.

Last Father’s Day, Kim posted a pic of their family on Instagram with the caption, “Happy Fathers Day babe! Thank you for always putting our family first and being the best dad to our babies! I couldn’t ask for a better husband and more perfect family. We love you so much!” You can certainly see why Kim is being so protective of the special relationship between Kanye and his kids.

With doctors currently treating Kanye with various medications while they try to sort out his situation, hopefully he’ll find his way back soon enough and be able to see his sweet kiddos.
