Neil Patrick Harris Gives Fans Update After Husband David Burtka Undergoes Spinal Surgery

Having major surgery is always nerve-racking, especially now during these unprecedented times.

I think many would argue it's even more stressful when your partner is going through major surgery! No one knows this stress like Neil Patrick Harris, whose hubby David Burtka recently underwent spinal surgery.

Now, he's giving fans an update on how David is doing post-surgery.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are one of my favorite celeb couples.

The pair have been together since 2004, tied the knot in 2014, and have two beautiful children together.

And, as many fans know, they're the best family when it comes to Halloween cosrumes. Seriously, they win the holiday every damn year!

Now, NPH is giving fans a highly anticipated update on David's recent spinal surgery.

The 45-year-old actor and professional chef underwent a 9+ hour surgery that resulted in 3 spinal fusions.

"David is recovering from spinal surgery. It was fairly intensive, took over seven hours, but he’s in good spirits and doing well" Neil's began.

"It’s one of the scarier, more hopeless feelings - hoping for the best, trying not to fear the worst, waiting a call with news. Thankfully, all went according to plan. Whew..! Two thumbs up. I love you, @dbelicious. Your strength inspires me. And thanks to NY-Presbyterian Hospital for, well, everything."

He then posted a hilarious video of his husband on high pain medication.

"A few hours after surgery. Not sure David will remember saying any of this... but damn, it makes me laugh. I appreciate his positive energy so so much," he wrote.

We're wishing David a speedy recovery!
