Mario Lopez turned to social media yesterday to let his fans know he was recovering after undergoing surgery.

The actor, turned TV host, endured an injury on the Fourth of July.

While sparring, Lopez tore his Achilles tendon, landing him in the hospital.

After the initial injury, Lopez documented the ordeal on Instagram, saying perhaps this is God’s way of telling him he needs to slow down a bit.

Despite the setback, Mario remained positive in the posts, with the most recent photo showing him in a hospital bed, with a telling caption that he made it through the ordeal.

No doubt, the injury is going to take some time to recover from, but it’s great to see him is good spirits.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Mario!
