You probably adore Fixer Upper if you enjoy reality television, interior design, and renovation projects. Throughout its five seasons of broadcasting, the Chip and Joanna Gaines-led program drew a sizable audience.

The couple, who have five kids together, earlier this year won their first Emmy nomination for outstanding structured reality program. The Gaines, who also manage the well-liked reality program, also established their own network, Magnolia, which had its cable debut at the beginning of 2022.

The network’s episodes are already available on Discovery+ thanks to a streaming agreement they have with HBO Max.

Joanna recently shared pictures of herself lying in a hospital bed, donning sunglasses, and posing with a peace sign. As the reality star revealed that this was her second microdiscectomy in her life, her admirers began to worry about her health.

I’ve been battling with a back issue since high school cheerleading caused it—basically, a basket toss became back injury.

When I underwent my first microdisectomy in 2001, I was forced to postpone my second date with Chip Carter Gaines. Two weeks ago, I underwent the same treatment on a different disc.

I’ve always jokingly said that my back tends to act up at the most inconvenient times, so the timing of everything around the holiday season caused me a little concern.

However, I am sincerely appreciative of the forced rest I had at the busiest season of the year. Simply remaining motionless, gazing at the wonder all about, and remaining still has been a blessing.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas week. Even if things don’t turn out exactly as you had hoped, may you still discover the wonder and beauty of the present moment.

This form of spine surgery is frequently used to cure a herniated disk, which impinges on a spinal nerve and produces discomfort in the patient.

Joanna had her first surgery of this type back in 2001 after suffering a back injury while at high-school.

“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,” she wrote on Instagram.

This time, she would be forced to experience a different type of holiday due to her surgery.

“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,” she wrote and sent some kind words to her followers. “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,” she wrote and added that she’s staying positive.

Back in November, Joanna Gaines released her memoir The Stories We Tell: Every Piece of Your Story Matters.

We wish her fast recovery.
