A few days ago, Tori Roloff shared a new video of Jackson Roloff. The family was walking.
Fans have long expressed concern about the prominent bend in his legs. It doesn’t seem to have improved, despite painful surgery.
Tori’s latest video showed Jackson being his adorable 6-year-old self in the house.
Was she trying to send a message to concerned fans? Because the fears about his bone development have not gone away.
In the last days of June, Tori Roloff took to her Instagram Story to share images of her precious children.
1-year-old Josiah was giggling in his crib.
His big brother, 6-year-old Jackson Roloff, walked over to visit his little brother.
Jackson stepped onto a low step to look into the crib.
He is, of course, a small child himself. But the step stool is probably primarily for Zach, the father of both boys.
Tori is the only member of this precious family who is of medium height. At 5-foot-5, she may not need a step to access the crib. But everyone else would.
Tori’s video showed what a precious big brother Jackson is. But it also brought up something else.
His legs remain conspicuously bent. Although he can still walk, his legs have a prominent curve.
Users on social media, even Reddit (a platform where the company is currently at war with its own users), to discuss the boy’s bone growth.
“I’m so sorry for Jackson. Looks like the surgery didn’t really work,” said a poster on Reddit.
“I hope they can do something else to help him walk!” they continued. “Hopefully he’s not in pain.”
One commenter commented, “The poor kid is literally walking on the sides of his feet. It actually looks worse now than it did before he had the surgery. It just looks really sore.”
“It will ruin his feet,” another Redditor wrote.
“Yeah, this is just heartbreaking to watch,” said another Reddit resident.
However, others expressed more optimism than others about how successful Jackson’s 2021 procedure will ultimately be.
“The surgery was not supposed to be a one-time operation,” one commenter reminded everyone.
“He’s undergoing more minor surgeries to straighten his legs throughout his childhood,” they noted. “He’s still growing.”
The commentator added: “Instead of going through a huge, incredibly painful long recovery operation when he’s almost fully grown, they chose this route under the guidance of their doctors.”
It’s true that Tori and Zach warned fans not to expect too much progress too soon when it comes to Jackson’s legs.
However, we are approaching the two-year mark for his final procedure.
Tori and Zach previously shared that he may need another, more invasive surgery if the plates the doctors put in don’t work.
With a child of average height, they would see results faster.
For now, we are confident that Jackson’s parents are in consultation with their doctors.
That’s more important than worrying about social media. Even concern that comes from a good place.
