JINGER Duggar and her sister Jill have shown serious love to Zach Roloff after the Little People star’s health crisis.
Tori Roloff took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal that her husband had been admitted to the hospital for emergency brain surgery after a medical issue.
After Tori’s shocking update, fans, friends, and family flooded the comments with kind words.
Jinger was among the early commenters, writing: “Praying for you guys!”

Their own family also shared sweet sentiments amid the scary news.
Amy Roloff, whom Tori revealed had come to be with her and Zach’s kids, wrote: “You’re a trooper as well Tori. I’m glad I could be here so you could be there with him.”
Matt Roloff, whom Zach and Tori have been at odds with over the sale of Roloff Farms, chimed in: “I’m so happy, hopeful, and prayerful that this fixes those darn migraines once and for all! Amen.”

“Not exactly how we saw our week going,” Tori confessed in a lengthy caption. “Zachary had emergency shunt revision this morning.”
A shunt is a hollow tube surgically placed in the brain – sometimes in the spine – that helps drain cerebrospinal fluid and takes “it to another location in the body where it can be reabsorbed,” according to John Hopkins Medicine.
Shunt procedures address the pressure on the brain – which could be caused by hydrocephalus – and assist with relieving many symptoms, such as gait difficulty, mild dementia, and lack of bladder control.
Tori went on: “It’s been a scary 72 hours but he is doing well and recovering!!”
She then thanked family and friends for their thoughts and prayers during an otherwise dark time.
“Thank you so much to everyone for the prayers that you have covered us in. We feel them!” she exclaimed. “We are so incredibly blessed by our neurosurgeon team and their attentiveness to Zach’s needs!
“Thank you to our friends and family who have all reached out asking to help. We feel so loved and supported by you.
“Also shout out to @amyjroloff for holding down the fort and playing hide n seek for who knows how many hours.
“I’m here praying that Zach’s recovery is quick and easy and that this will be our answered prayers to relieving his migraines!
“You’re a freaking bad a**, Zach. You just had brain surgery… and handled it like a rockstar. I’m so proud of you.”
THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE
Word spread late Wednesday night that the father of three had to be hospitalized.
His dad, Matt, 61, asked fans to pray for Zach.
“Family has been in constant contact and communication. We are all praying for Zach as he undergoes an important shunt revision.
“He’s in good hands with Tori advocating tooth and nail for his best interest,” Matt added.
“All prayers up please for Zach’s successful recovery.”
