Duck Dynasty’s Jase Robertson Gives Update on Daughter Mia’s ‘Extensive’ Surgery: ‘Thanks For Praying!’

by Halle Ames

Duck Dynasty star Jase Robertson takes to Instagram to give an update on his daughter Mia’s ‘extensive’ jaw surgery. 

This morning Missy and Jase Robertson‘s youngest child, Mia, went into surgery. The surgery is one of thirteen operations Mia Robertson has had to fix the cleft lip and palate she was born with. 

Jase Robertson Keeps the Faith

The worried father also shares how proud he is of 17-year-old Mia. He calls her “one of the bravest people” he knows. 

Although the surgery was supposed to start at 10:30 this morning, Jase Robertson notes that the operation didn’t begin until 11:45 a.m.

“The doctors started the procedure at 11:45. It will take a long while. The longest one yet. This girl is one of the bravest people I know. She asks the nurses and doctors questions, tells them funny stories, and talks about the food she wants to eat. She never shows fear. She’s an amazing kid!” 

Next, the heavily faith-based man offers up a Bible verse from Isaiah 43:1. The verse talks of faith and not to worry, something the whole Robertson family needs right now. 

“But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1.”

Jase Robertson finishes the post, thanking fans for their prayers during this significant day. 

Missy Highlights Surgery This Morning

Under his caption, Jase reposts his wife Missy’s caption. She talks about the plans for the procedure.

“Our Mia girl will have the most extensive surgery she’s ever had. Both jaws will be cut and reset in order to improve her overall health and speech,” she writes. “We were told she will be in surgery approximately 5 hours.”

Luckily, both Missy and Jase Robertson were able to be in the hospital due to a change in Covid regulations, conveniently on March 15.

The parents also take the time to show their gratitude to everyone involved to make this surgery possible. 

“Thank you to my sweet friends and family who prayed so fervently for this! And thank you to the @international_craniofacial and their amazing staff for jumping into action for us today to make this happen.”  

From your friends here at Outsider, we are wishing you well on your surgery and hoping for a speedy recovery, Mia!
