Send some good vibes over to Joanna Gaines, because she's currently recovering from a hospitalization and surgery. Joanna posted a photo from her hospital bed on Thursday, explaining that she injured her back in high school during cheerleading ( "a basket toss turned back injury") and that she's been dealing with the fallout ever since.

Joanna went on to explain that she had her first microdisectomy (a surgery performed on herniated lumbar discs) back in 2001 and the timing was truly terrible—partly because she had to cancel her second date with her future husband Chip Carter Gaines. Unfortunately, she had to have the same procedure two weeks ago.

"I've always joked that my back likes to act up at the most inconvenient times and I was a bit stressed bc of the timing of it all with the holiday season," the HGTV star shared on Instagram. "But I 'm truly grateful for the forced rest during the busiest time of the year. It has been a gift to simply stay put, stare at the wonder all around, and just be still."

Joanna ended her post saying "Wishing you and yours a beautiful Christmas week. It may not all go as planned- but may you find the beauty and embrace the wonder of the here and now. ✨"

Surgery right before the holidays does not sound fun, so here's to hoping Joanna rests up and feels better soon!
