Little People Big World: Tori Roloff Fears Surgery For Lilah Is Inevitable

Little People Big World: Tori Roloff

Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff keeps TLC fans updated about the health of Jackson and Lilah. Both of the cute kids were born with some health issues, not uncommon with achondroplasia. One issue that Lilah copes with is strabismus. It causes her to look cross-eyed as they don’t align with one another. Unfortunately, while she avoided eye surgery so far, Tori now thinks that it’s inevitable.

Little People, Big World Tori Roloff Worried About Lilah & Jackson

Jackson started to show marked leg-bowing recently, and fans heard from Tori and Zach in the last season that he might have to go for corrective surgery. Actually, Zach reminded fans that he spent his teen years undergoing some rough times. Luckily, the docs tried to do less invasive surgery with Jackson, and time will tell if it helps.

Meanwhile, when Lilah Roloff arrived, fans saw her crying and she worried her daughter might have hydrocephalus. She didn’t have it, but as a tiny tot, she ended up wearing eyeglasses to help her vision.

Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff celebrated Lilah’s second birthday in 2021, and she still didn’t go for surgery. TLC fans noticed that she seemed very slow in reaching her milestones. Actually, she took a very long time to sit up without assistance. Fortunately, she got over that stage and started waking. Now, she runs around all over the place, enjoying life with her big brother. But surgery looms for her sometime in the future.
