Tori Roloff started off by telling Zach Roloff, “So we found out Lilah has to have her tonsils and adenoids out. That’s gonna be fun.” But she didn’t look amused, and Zach said, “She’ll have that at the end of the month.” 

The Little People, Big World mom added:

[Jackson] never needed it or at least doesn’t need it yet. But Lilah has severe sleep apnea, and so they’re gonna take her tonsils and adenoids out, which I am a little nervous about. So that’s what I’m kinda nervous about because, you know, Jackson woke up both times pretty terribly, and it wasn’t until we got home that he was finally able to relax and kinda sit and be okay.

The Little People, Big World star also spoke about how the surgeon plans to “keep [Lilah] overnight,” which makes her a bit anxious. She noted, you just want to get back “home” and “not stay at the hospital.”

In the comments, LPBW fans discussed Lilah Roloff and kids needing surgeries:

  • I get it tho because it is upsetting when u see your baby with wires connected to them. Your first reaction is shock.
  • in the sixties all children here in the Netherlands [doctors] were taking tonsils out. Which is not a good thing, because let’s face it, they’re in there for a purpose. So now it’s only…done if there is a real cause…And I can imagine there is.
  • All the best to Lilah and her surgery.
