LITTLE Couple’s Dr Jen Arnold has shared an adorable snap with her daughter Zoey as she enjoys the support of her family while recovering from hip surgery.
The reality star underwent the “painful” procedure earlier this month and has updated fans on her recovery.
During a beach trip with her daughter, Jen was all smiles as the duo posed for a pic while sitting on the sand.
The mom-of-two donned a gray wide-brimmed hat as she beamed at the camera alongside the 10-year-old.
They each wore matching blue and white striped tops for the outing as Zoey sported her dark hair back in a loose ponytail.
The photo captured the gorgeous Florida blue skies as the pair – who recently moved up north – seemed to have the beach to themselves near their old stomping grounds.
Jen captioned the post: “My beach buddy.”
The day out is one of the first for Jen after her intense procedure and rough recovery.
The TV star concerned fans after posting a photo of herself lying on the couch with a blanket over her on Friday.
She appeared makeup-free and included a lengthy caption in which she provided an update on her recovery journey.
“I haven’t been online in a while – balancing work & hip revision surgery & mommy hood keeping me busy & tired,” Jen wrote.
Jen went on: “Sharing a recovery photo… More to come as I’m now walking with only one crutch.”
Fans wished her well in the comments, while many appeared worried.
One commenter wrote: “Hoping for a smooth recovery!”
Another wrote: “Oh wow. Please take care of my friend rest and relax, recover.”
A third commenter added: “Bless your sweet heart you are such an inspiration healing prayers and good vibes your way.”
Following her procedure, she thanked her doctor in a post crediting him for taking such good care of her and her husband, Bill Klein.
“This hip replacement revision surgery wasn’t the easiest I’ve had, with a small pelvic fracture & not being able to bear weight on my leg for 6weeks,” Dr. Jen continued.
The Little Couple star went on to say that this surgery was easy compared to the many orthopedic procedures she has had in the past, noting that she had to be in full body casts for weeks at one time.
This marks her second hip surgery, as she had gotten the right one operated on some time before.
The 48-year-old had her left hip operated on 20 years ago, but it failed.
She traveled to New York for her operation to work with one of the top doctors.
Amid her health struggles, Jen and Bill moved their family to Boston after selling their massive Florida mansion for $36million.
Their decision to move was fueled by Jen’s new job placement in the city.
Their kids, Zoey and William, 11, enjoyed their new residence as they recently experienced their first snow day.
