'Duck Dynasty' star undergoes surgery after family asked for prayers
Missy Robertson from Duck Dynasty has kept her followers up to date on her daughter, Mia Robertson’s surgical journey. On Monday, the teenager was due for another procedure.
Fans of the reality show know that Mia was born with a cleft lip and palate. According to her mother, this week she was going for her 8th procedure.
Mia Robertson, 14, is the only daughter of Jase and Missy Robertson. Throughout her life, she has undergone several different surgeries because she was born with a cleft lip and palate.
Missy and Jase have both been extremely open about the struggles that their family has faced as a result of their daughter’s developmental challenges. They've both posted about their daughter’s journey using the hashtag #BraveMia.
After a long day of doctors’ appointments & travel, we heard good news & not-so-good news about Mia’s progress. Knowing that our God is the Great Physician is the best news of all. He’ll never fail our girl. Please pray for Mia. Another surgery is scheduled this summer. #BraveMia pic.twitter.com/1sv1dDtk8Q— Missy Robertson (@MissyDuckWife) May 9, 2018

If you’re a parent of a child with a chronic medical condition or illness, you understand the weighty need for distractions from the pain.

Mia is in surgery, it is always tough to see your child rolled away. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers...I’ll keep ya posted. pic.twitter.com/WGhwRPTI3v— Jase Robertson (@JaseDuckman) July 23, 2018

Mia update: First ‘in surgery’ report was all good. They said she was ‘surprisingly calm’ before she went under. I believe that says a lot about her courage and your prayers. It will be a couple more hours...thanks again. #BraveMia— Jase Robertson (@JaseDuckman) July 23, 2018
