Stand-up comedian and actor, Jim Gaffigan is largely known for his award winning humor revolving around fatherhood and food.  However, the other day Jim let us see a different side of him; Concerned husband. 

After cancelling some shows last minute, Jim shared on his Facebook page that his wife and writing partner, Jeannie had a brain tumor removed and was now at home recovering from surgery. 

"Two weeks ago an MRI revealed @jeanniegaffigan had a large tumor around her brain stem that was life threatening. After nine hours of urgent surgery the tumor was completely removed. She is now recovering at home. We thank you for your continued prayers."

The power comedy couple were lucky enough to catch Jeannie's tumor in pretty early stages and went in almost immediately to have it removed.

Jeannie is doing much better now and as you can see from Jim's most recent photo (Below) two of their five children are highly trained medical professionals that have been providing top notch home care. :-) 

You can send thoughts, prayers and lots of love to Jim and his family right here via Facebook or Twitter
