Long-Term Medical Crisis? Jill Duggar’s Son Hooked To Tubes After Leaving Hospital
After Jill Duggar's husband Derick Dillard posted a throwback photo of his youngest son hooked up to wires at the time of his birth, a new picture shows his medical crisis could be long term.
On the Duggar Family Official Facebook page, twins Jana and John David Duggar were given a shout out for their 28th birthdays. In one of the photos, Jana is seen holding Samuel. It appears there is a tube coming from the little one and oxygen tape on the side of his head.
"Why the oxygen tape?" a concerned fan asked. "I didn't hear there was an issue with his birth, except that Jill needed another C-section. In this pic he's already home so it sounds more long term than just a quick birth recovery issue."
A second follower wrote, "The white cord is from an apnea monitor. Maybe he needed 02 for feeds."

The photo comes after Derick posted a photo of Samuel with tubes coming out of his nose.
"That is a tube to suction fluid out of the lungs," a fan suspected. "When babies are born by C-section the fluid does not get pushed out by contractions. It is normal to have to get this out, not a complication. Happened with both my C-section babies."
Jill gave birth July 8 via C-section. Fans suspected there were complications at the time of his birth, as she waited until July 25 to share of photo of her second son. They are also parents to son Israel, 2.
