'Little People, Big World': Tori worries Lilah's health is deteriorating, wonders if it is due to dwarfism
Tori revealed that for the past couple of weeks, Lilah had not been doing well as she would often sleep for long hours and seemed like she was not comfortable
Tori Patton and Zachary Roloff's Valentine's Day did not turn out the way they had expected. Tori revealed that for the past couple of weeks, their daughter Lilah Roloff had not been doing well as she would often sleep for long hours and seemed like she was not comfortable. Zachary tried to assure her everything was fine and it might be a cold.
However, Tori found it hard to believe. She said that it seemed like Lilah wanted to lift her head but was unable to do so without the help. She tried to reason out her behavior by stating it might be some allergies. Her fears became a reality when the next day she noticed Lilah had been throwing up multiple times.
Tori thought it looked like she was in pain and uncomfortable. She was worried it might be something to do with dwarfism. Tori admitted she has been hyper-sensitive to Lilah or Jackson getting sick as compared to her husband Zachary Roloff. One of her biggest worries was if Lilah had hydrocephalus.
Hydrocephalus is a condition when the water from the brain is not getting properly drained. The chances of people with dwarfism to have hydrocephalus are higher. Zachary revealed he was diagnosed with the same when he was a child and it wasn't a situation he would want anyone to be in.
She thought Lilah showed the top three symptoms that would hint she does have the condition. Amy Roloff admitted that it is a scary situation for any mother to be in. She tried to calm Tori down and asked her to be positive. After seeing how Lilah had been behaving, the pair finally decided to get her tested.
The doctors revealed Lilah had a respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza A virus. Matt Roloff was shocked to find this out as he had expected it to be a common cold. He recalled Zachary also had RSV and it got to a point where he thought he would lose his son. Zachary admitted it was hard for him to go through it as it was very painful.
Tori, on the other hand, was at ease to know it was not hydrocephalus. However, the doctor warned her it was important to take care of Lilah as there were chances of things getting worse. Tori knew it was going to be a struggle to stay strong in the coming days, but she was looking forward to seeing Lilah healthy again.
