Jessa Duggar Reveals Son’s Health Condition, Gets Criticized For Negligence

Jessa Duggar just can’t seem to catch a break lately.

It seems that ever since Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, was fired from Counting On, the scrutiny of Jessa and her family has only intensified.

On social media, Jessa has remained as famous as ever amongst obsessive Duggar fans.

Unfortunately, these days, her interactions with her followers tend to be strangely hostile.

More often than not the negativity takes the form of critical comments about Jessa’s parenting.

In recent months, Jessa has been slammed by fans for everything from failing to properly homeschool her children to putting them in harm’s way by living to close to a highway.

Needless to say, followers have devoted a shocking amount ot time to combing through her social media posts in search of something to get angry about.

Sometimes, however, the outrage stems not from a minor background detail in a photo on Jessa’s Instagram, but from comments she’s made on her family’s popular reality show.

And it seems a minor revelation Jess made on this week’s episode has the Duggar faithful all whipped up into a frenzy. 

“When Henry was about three months old, he had what appeared to be ‘cradle cap,'” Jessa told the camera.

“But I tried a lot of different washes, lotions, creams, and things like that, and then I started to figure it out that this was actually eczema and probably an allergy.”

She added that the problem is persistent, and that she and husband Ben Seewald are often forced to take action in order to stop Henry from making things worse:

“Henry has some pretty bad flare-ups on his head and in his neck creases and so we have to keep socks on his hands to keep him from scratching it,” Jessa added.

Apparently, a sizable percentage of the Counting On audience is made up of medical professionals, and many of them feel that Jessa is to blame for her son’s condition:

“I just saw the episode of Henry and his eczema allergy. I saw you eating eggs, and eggs can also be a huge flare up,” wrote one viewer on Mrs. Seewald’s Instagram page.

“My son has eczema too, we found out it’s a wheat, egg, and soy allergy,” wrote another.

“Cut gluten, dairy, and sugar,” advised a third, cautioning that scents and lotions Jessa is using might also be making the problem worse.

We’re sure most of these folks intended to be helpful, but the tone often comes off as a but smug and scolding – especially since Jessa already addressed these possible causes in Monday’s episode:

“I’m trying to address what’s irritating his stomach and trying to eliminate things from my diet to see what’s up,” she said on the show.

“I’ve cut out all inflammatory foods: gluten, dairy, corn, nuts. It’s just a matter of figuring out what it is.”

So there you have it, folks – Jessa seems to have access to the same medical information as the rest of us.

But we’re sure that won’t keep you from offering unsolicited advice.

Watch Counting On online to find more reasons to get on Jessa’s case!

Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard: Hiding Samuel Dillard’s Genetic Condition?

Samuel Dillard — known as SamSam by his parents — is the infant son of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard.

Since his birth, fans have spotted hints that baby Samuel has some sort of health problem.

New photos shared by the Duggar family have even more fans worried that Samuel has a health issue. And puzzled that the Duggars are keeping it quiet.

The Duggar family is not one to stay quiet about their ever-expanding brood.

Any time that a Duggar baby is born, there are photos left and right.

Sometimes, a mother will sit down and do a photoshoot with a magazine within days of giving birth. Reproduction is a huge part of the Duggar brand, folks.

So the relative lack of photos and proclamations of joy in the weeks that followed SamSam’s birth were … suspicious to a number of fans. Fans were curious for other reasons, too, which we’ll get to in a moment.

First, look at these recent photos:

He’s so cute!

As usual, many Duggar defenders think that asking questions about one of the children qualifies as “hate.”

But fans who have been curious about Samuel for a while point out that he appears to lack a prominent bridge to his nose.

That can be an indicator for certain genetic disorders.

If Samuel was born with visible indications of a disorder at birth, that might have explained the relative radio silence that the family went into about their new addition to the Duggar family in those few weeks after he was born.

You might look at adorable photos of Samuel and say “well, he’s cute; his nose doesn’t mean that he has a condition or disorder.”

And you might be right.

But, as fans of the Duggars are quick to point out, there’s more than a social media absence after his birth to make fans wonder.

After Samuel’s birth, Jill started posting some cryptic messages on social media.

They were, of course, Christian in origin. 

On Instagram, Jill wrote:

“It’s easy to praise God when things are going great, but do we continue to count our blessings when things aren’t going like we planned?”

That’s not the usual sentiment that a happy mother expresses after her child’s birth.

Some, however, note that there may have been some complication with Jill.

Some suspected that she’d required an emergency hysterectomy after Samuel’s birth. If true, that would certainly qualify as crushing news for a member of a fertility cult.

Others wonder if she may have been suffering from post-partum depression. The human body can be cruel, folks.

For what it’s worth, Samuel also seems to spend a lot of time on the floor. Even for a baby. And, often, without a blanket, which infuriates a lot of followers who hate the idea of a baby wallowing on the carpet for hours.

But that might just be yet another Jill Duggar parenting fail.

Are these latest photos further evidence that Samuel has a genetic disorder? We sure don’t know.

We do know that the Duggars are just about the last family we’d want a potentially disabled child to be born into. (Or any child, for that matter)

And we have to wonder why Jill and Derick haven’t either cleared up this rumor … or confirmed it. Some fans can’t help but wonder if the couple is ashamed of their son.

We should point out that perhaps the strongest argument for Samuel not having a genetic disorder is that his parents haven’t spoken about it.

With all of the money that Derick and Jill asked for to help with their “totally legit” missionary work, you’d think that they’d milk their fans for donations if they have a child with any sort of specual needs.

Ami Brown: Out of the Hospital, Still in Grave Condition

We have some relatively good news, Alaskan Bush People fans:

Ami Brown is out of the hospital.

The matriarch of the family at the center of this Discovery Channel reality show, Brown was diagnosed several months ago with lung cancer.

And it’s very serious.

The disease has reached Stage 4 and the prognosis is grim. That’s the bad news here:

Even with Brown out of the hospital and free from doctor supervision for a bit, the Facebook page “Alaskan Bush People Exposed” writes that the star remains weak and frail.

“Ami update: She is not in the hospital, however chemotherapy / radiation has taken its toll on her, and she is not well enough to start filming yet,” the account wrote on Monday, adding:

“Filming has been delayed. They are still in CA except for Noah and Rhain/Ruth. They were spotted in Idaho of all places!”

ab update

In order to find Ami the best medical care possible, her husband and most of her children relocated from their famous remote enclave in Alaska to southern California, at least for a few weeks.

There’s been talk that Alaskan Bush People Season 8 will find the Browns in Colorado, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

Not even whether or not there even will be an Alaskan Bush People Season 8.

A lot will depend on Ami, of course, who is tragically not expected to live for very much longer.

An earlier report, for example, claimed Brown was on her death bed.

But she’s still here. That has to mean something. And we’re like to remain as hopeful as Ami herself has been throughout this ordeal.

“Worrying about it only makes it worse,” Ami told People Magazine this summer of her condition, adding at the time:

“There is hope and that hope is having faith in God. You can’t give up. I tell people be happy. Just be happy. It’s a choice.

“Things can be hard and you just want to curl up but you have to shine.”

What an admirable attitude, right?

It’s one her family members are trying to emulate, but it’s difficult under these circumstances.

“She’s the strongest person I know, so if she’s saying it hurts, it really hurts,” Billy Brown also told People several weeks back.

He continued in his interview as follows:

“She tries to hide it from everybody but four or five times a day she bends over like a baby and cries.”

We really can’t imagine what this family is going through.

Forget Season 8 of their show and forget what the future may or may not hold for them in front of the camera.

We’re simply sending our thoughts and prayers to Ami as she does battle with this awful illness. We wish her nothing but the best.

Young Dolph Shot in Hollywood; Rapper in Critical Condition

Young Dolph, a rapper from Tennessee who was the victim of a shooting in North Carolina just six months ago, was involved in a scuffle outside the Loews Hollywood Hotel last night.

According to The Los Angeles Times, one of the men beefing with Young Dolph took out a gun and shot the artist multiple times.

The incident took place along Hollywood Boulevard and prompted police officers and paramedics to swarm this busy tourist area.

Los Angeles Police Officer Mike Lopez tells the aforementioned newspaper that Young Dolph was actually shot several times while he lay on the ground.

He had fallen during the argument and that was one the shooter took action.

Despite being wounded, the rapper managed to stand up and run into Shoe Palace, near the famous TCL Chinese Theatre, while two of the men also involved in the fracas ran away.

The third individual jumped into a gold Cadillac Escalade and drove it to a gas station next door.

He then hopped out and ran, leaving this vehicle behind.

Police have searched the SUV and come away empty-handed: no weapons were discovered inside and it remains unclear just who owns it.

Detectives are apparently investigating whether the shooting was related to a rivalry with another artist.

Back in February, Young Dolph – whose real name is Adolph Thornton Jr. – was in an SUV in Charlotte, North Carolina when the car came under gunfire.

Three people were arrested in May in connection with this shooting.

The rapper survived that incident, of course, and authorities say he was placed in critical condition following the latest shooting… but is expected to survive this one as well.

One man was detained for questioning on Tuesday morning, but it’s unknown at this time whether he was one of the three involved in the fight.

Younh Dolph released an album in April titled, “Bulletproof,” which was a reference to the shooting in Charlotte.

It ranked number-36 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

He was scheduled to perform at the Marke in South Los Angeles on Thursday before traveling to Georgia to open for hip-hop star 2 Chainz next week. 

We have to assume at this point that he will not be making either of those appearances.
