Zach Roloff, the Little People, Big World star who underwent an emergency shunt revision, is “doing well and recovering,” his wife Tori Roloff wrote to her 10.9 million Instagram followers.

Zachary needed an urgent shunt revision this morning, Tori, 31, wrote in the caption, adding, “This was not at all how we had planned our vacation.”. Despite what happened, he is fine and healing despite the terrifying 72 hours.

She thanked Zach’s friends, family, and supporters as well as the neurosurgeon team for “their attentiveness to Zach’s needs!” and shared pictures of Zach smiling while in the hospital bed.

Tori Roloff makes the heartbreaking announcement.

We appreciate your love and support so much, she said. “Amy Roloff, Zach’s mother, is also deserving of praise for keeping things running smoothly while we played hide-and-seek for countless hours. ”.

Zach, you are an amazing human being.
I’m praying for a quick and painless recovery for you, and that this will be the answer to our prayers for headache relief for you.
After having brain surgery, you behaved like a rock star. I’m so proud of you. ”.

According to John Hopkins Medicine, a shunt is a hollow tube that is surgically inserted into the brain or occasionally the spine to assist in the drainage of cerebrospinal fluid and the redirection of that fluid to another location in the body where it can be reabsorbed. A condition known as hydrocephalus may be treated with this procedure.

In a previous statement, Zach Roloff’s father, Matt Roloff, said that his son was going to have an “essential shunt adjustment. He urged their followers to pray for them and their family.

The Instagram Story that Tori shared with her followers has since been deleted. She said in it that she “hesitated” before telling them the news but that she “really believes in prayer” and “may need some” the following day.

Tori continued, “Zach and I are anxious even though they say it’s a routine procedure because I have no idea what to expect. “It seems like a big deal to us, but we trust his doctors’ knowledge and skill.” “Any prayers would be greatly appreciated!”.
