Josiah, nine months, turned his head back and smiled for the camera.
Tori wrote: “Checking on dad’s chickens for him.”
Along with Jackson and Josiah, Tori and her husband, Zach 32, are the parents of their three-year-old daughter, Lilah.
ZACH’S BRAIN SURGERY
Meanwhile, Zach has been recovering from his recent emergency shunt revision.
A shunt is a hollow tube surgically placed in the brain, sometimes in the spine, that helps drain cerebrospinal fluid.
After the fluid is drained, it is redirected “to another location in the body where it can be reabsorbed,” according to John Hopkins Medicine.
The procedure addresses the pressure on the brain and assists with relieving many symptoms, such as gait difficulty, mild dementia, and lack of bladder control.
Tori admitted: “It’s been a scary 72 hours, but he is doing well and recovering!!”
She also praised her mother-in-law Amy Roloff, 60, “for holding down the fort and playing hide n’ seek for who knows how many hours.”
Amy previously scrapped her “live chat” with fans, which was originally scheduled for February 9th.
The Roloff matriarch apologized for the abrupt cancellation and explained: “You have to rise to the occasion. I was happy to be able to for Zach and Tori.
“I’m watching the grandkids while Tori can be there for Zach.”
Amy recently updated fans on her son’s status and said: “So far, so good and we’re praying his recovery is strong and goes well.
“I know he doesn’t want to be here again anytime soon.
“I’ve been watching the grandkids, so she has been able to be with him. Zach’s a trooper as well as Tori.”
She concluded: “That has been a blast. He’ll be back home in a day or two.”
Recently, Jackson revealed he was taking on more responsibilities after grabbing a few chores around the house.
In an Instagram Story, Zach’s son appeared with a mop in his hand.
The toddler pushed the mop around the room, cleaned the floors, and focused on his spotless work.
Tori gushed: “A kid after my own heart: He asked me to mop the floors!”
