“So some Me news: on Monday, an incredible surgeon in Newport (dr Robert Bray) opened up my neck, drilled out some calcified bone & 2 sh***y discs in my spine, popped in 2 artificial discs & sewed me back up,” the actor wrote. “It was horrifying but I’m alive & lots of friends/family sending me food that I can swallow, which is a v underrated category of food (slippery). @michellehelyn is an incredible (& patient) nurse.”

Feldman also gave a shoutout to their 2-year-old son, Charlie.

“Charlie will bring his toy dr bag up to my room & give me a ‘shot’. Anyway things are good,” he said.
