Fans are sending their well-wishes to actor Neil Patrick Harris since he revealed on Instagram that had undergone surgery on his hand after a family vacation to Croatia.

We love and respect Neil Patrick Harris in this house.

So when the actor revealed he was requiring surgery on his finger after a Croation vacation with his family, we were shooketh.

We got especially concerned because it was just recently announced that NPH landed himself a role in the latest "Matrix" installment.

THAT'S RIGHT, BABY.

He'll be staring alongside Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Warner Bros. announced in August that a fourth “Matrix” movie is officially in the works and is set to start filming in a couple of months.

Which is WHY we're hoping Neil's new injury doesn't cause any issues while filming!

Fingers crossed (no pun intended) that he has a speedy recovery and can start filming without a hitch.

Now let's back it up, NPH's dreamy Croatian trip happened two months ago!

NPH and his hubby David Burtka have such an adorable family I can't handle it!

The only thing you should take home with you after a European vacation is some jetlag and a few extra lbs.

NOT AN INFECTION.

Sadly, NPH didn't have such luck.

The actor posted a photo of himself in the hospital on Instagram yesterday, along with an ultrasound video of his injury.

"Had surgery today. I tripped and hand planted onto a sea urchin almost two months ago while climbing rocky cliffs in Croatia," he wrote.

How is he still so cute even in a hospital gown?

BTW if you've ever even so much as touched a sea urchin, you can probably guess how excutiating it must have been to fall hand-first on top of one.

Giphy

I got chills just thinking about it.

Load Comments

It's bad enough that he hand-planted onto a sea urchin, but to make a bad situation worse, he got an infection from it.

Instagram | @nph

Which is so rude, to be honest.

Load Comments

"Most of the tiny spines I dug out myself, but two refused to leave and one got infected," he explained.

Instagram | @nph

AH!

Load Comments

"Turns out it pierced through a tendon (see ultrasound video)."

Instagram | @nph

"Well, thanks to the surgical talents of Dr. Dan Polatsch and his team, I’m officially urchin free and on the mend."

Load Comments

"Only drawback - having to wear this massive hand elevating contraption for the foreseeable future".

Instagram | @nph

"All in all, though, I have to say: uni is still delicious."

Load Comments

Friends and fans flooded his comment section, extending their sympathies.

His fellow How I Met Your Mother co-star and longtime pal, Cobie Smulders, sent her well-wishes.

Load Comments

Speaking of "How I Met Your Mother", this person joked that they were surprised to see NPH wearing sweatpants.

Instagram | @nph

I don't think he will be suiting up anytime soon!

Load Comments

Here's another hilarious "How I Met Your Mother" reference.

Instagram | @nph

Whenever Barney Stinson starts feeling sick, he stops being sick and starts being "awesome instead."

That show really never gets old.

Load Comments

Some fans find this injury to be a unique one.

Instagram | @nph

I suppose out of the countless reasons there are to have surgery, this one wouldn't necessarily be high up on the list.

Load Comments

I rate this pun 10/10.

Instagram | @nph

This person deserves way more recognition for coming up with this one.

It was simple, tasteful, and perfectly executed.

Well done, @thefabulouskjg.

Load Comments

This person suggested that NPH eat as much uni as he can to avenge his finger.

Instagram | @nph

That'll teach those sea urchins not to mess with him ever again!

Load Comments

Get well soon, NPH! We hope your hand feels good as new in no time.

Sending our thoughts, prayers, and healing vibes!
