Earlier this month, Jen Arnold, star of TLC's "The Little Couple," revealed she had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The 39-year-old mother of two has since been updating her many fans on Twitter and on Friday (Dec. 27) shared a photo straight from the hospital ward.

After initially going public with the diagnosis, Arnold told HuffPost: "I am very fortunate as the prognosis is good. While there is never a good time to get news like this, getting it just as we are building our new family is tough in many ways ... But being surrounded by the love of my husband and our two beautiful children is actually in many ways giving me the strength to fight it even stronger."

A week later, Arnold revealed the devastating backstory to People magazine: When she and husband Bill Klein were in India to pick up their daughter Zoey, Arnold began bleeding. Back in the States, she was diagnosed with stage 3 choriocarcinoma, a rare cancer that began with a non-viable pregnancy she suffered in September. She has since undergone a hysterectomy.

Right before Christmas, Klein shared some news regarding his wife's situation, after which Jen elaborated:

Get well soon, Jen!
