Todd Marinovich, an ex-NFL quarterback, just had major surgery on his throwing hand.

That hand also just happens to be his painting hand now that he's retired!

Drug addiction ruined his football career and he almost lost everything, but he got clean and became a pretty successful artist!

Though things almost crashed down when he woke up with no feeling in his left hand one morning.

He apparently had a seriously bad case of carpel tunnel syndrome.

The surgery and the beginning of his recovery has been "pretty painful" but he's already moving forward and "painting through" the pain.

We're glad he got his life on track and we're glad he's able to continue living his new life as an artist!

Feel better, Todd!
