Our thoughts and prayers are with Zach Roloff

Zach Roloff is conscious and making progress in his recovery after brain surgery.

After the Little People, Big World star, 32, underwent an emergency shunt revision on Thursday morning, his wife Tori Roloff shared an update with her 1.9 million Instagram followers that Zach “is doing well and recovering” as a result of the procedure. She said that Zach “is doing well and recovering” after the operation.

“This was not at all how we had envisioned our vacation going… Tori, who is 31 years old, noted in the caption that Zachary had an emergency shunt revision this morning. It’s been a terrifying 72 hours, but he’s doing well and healing!! Despite everything that’s happened!

She thanked friends, family, and supporters, in addition to Zach’s neurosurgeon team, for “their attentiveness to Zach’s needs!” and shared photographs of Zach giving a thumbs up from his hospital bed.

The next thing she said was, “We feel so loved and supported by you.” “Also, I want to give a shout-out to [Zach’s mother Amy Roloff] for holding down the fort and playing hide and seek for who knows how many hours.

I am here praying that Zach’s recovery will be speedy and painless and that this will be the answer to our prayers for relieving Zach’s headaches!

Zach, you are one badass human being. Period. You just got through brain surgery… and acted like a rock star the whole time. You make me incredibly proud. Jeremiah 17:14,” Tori said in her post about Zach and their tale.

According to John Hopkins Medicine, a shunt is a hollow tube that is surgically placed in the brain — or occasionally in 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.

This procedure may be performed in response to a condition known as hydrocephalus.

Zach’s father, Matt Roloff, had previously shared the news on Wednesday that his son was getting ready to undergo a “essential shunt adjustment,” and he asked their fans to pray for them and their family.

Tori also updated her fans with an Instagram Story on Wednesday night, which has since been deleted. In it, she explained that she “hesitated” before sharing the news with them, but that she “really believes in prayer” and “could need some” the following day.

Tori continued by saying, “Even though they say it’s a regular procedure, I have no idea what to expect, and both Zach and I are anxious.” “It seems like a big deal to us, but we have faith in the abilities and expertise of his doctors! We would be incredibly grateful for any prayers!”
