Little People. Big World.
Huge and scary injury.
This past Sunday, Tori Roloff uploaded the following photo to her Instagram page and then explained the story behind it to concerned followers.
“Zach is known as the hand man in these parts. He loves holding hands,” the mother of three wrote to open her caption.
“You’ll always find him playing and inspecting my hands or our kids. It’s one of my favorite things about him and our kids love it too.”
Those kids include a five-year old son named Jackson Kyle; a two-year old daughter named Lilah Ray; and a precious one-month-old named Josiah Luke together.
By the sound of it, their dad gave them quite a fright over the weekend, too.
Continued Tori in her caption:
“Today Zach fell and we thought FOR SURE he broke his hand.
“I’d never seen a broken bone up close but I was sure that’s what it looked like.
“We panicked an entire birthday party trying to decide whether to go to urgent care or the emergency room.”
Fortunately, this was just an (understandable) overreaction.
“Thank the Lord nothing was broken,” Tori told followers, adding that the thumb was merely dislocated… which we’re sure was still quite painful.
“All I could think about was how he couldn’t hold my hand or his kids (his first thought was there goes bocce at LPA ),” wrote the TLC personality, concluding with a reference to the snapshot farther above of her husband with a soft cast:
“I’ll spare you all the before pic but swipe for the after!”
After Tori joked that “Zach will be milkin’ this one for a few days,” the family matriarch jumped into her Comments section.
“Thanks for calling me and I’m so glad it wasn’t worse,” Amy wrote.
“You’re so right, Zach has been called ‘the hand man since he could touch and hold another’s hand. it heals strong and well.”
As far as we can tell, Matt Roloff didn’t say anything in public about his son’s injury.
Might this be related to the ongoing feud between Zach and Matt?
A few weeks ago, the latter put a portion of his farm up for sale, later explaining that he wished one of his sons would have purchased it, “but my twin boys decided not to consider working together toward a possible joint sale.”
Both of them (along with their growing families) had moved on to other interests and investments…. and even tho a substantial family discount and a “gift of equity” was offered by both Amy and I….(and I still owe Amy a bundle of money) ..they decided individually that the timing was not right for them to purchase a part of the farm at this time
As a result, Matt said he simply had to put the farm up for sale so he could fulfill his “retirement goals.”
In a truly stunning rebuke, Zach tagged his dad and fired back as follows:
Once again like he has for most of his life not taking responsibility for his own actions and blaming others.
Dragging the family drama that he created and then manipulate the fan base to make himself come out okay.
This post his a new shocking low of cowardice and manipulation of his family and kids for his own gain.
Zach has since said he regrets going public with these remarks, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t mean them.
“I think it was a mistake to put it on social media, but I think I made my thoughts pretty clear”, the father of three told E! News last month.
As for where things stand with his father?
“It’s all good. We’re all family.”
