Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings shared post-surgery updates from his hospital bedside with his supportive girlfriend, Tae Heckard, whom he called his backbone. See their pics and vids inside…

Brandon Jennings, a guard for the Detroit Pistons, is recovering from surgery on his ruptured left Achilles tendon. According to ESPN, Brandon was injured during Saturday night’s loss to the Bucks. Later, he (with girlfriend Tae Heckard) sent several tweets from his bedside. And its clear that he and Tae are very much in love and have worked through their differences. He spoke of Tae saying, “My backbone with me every step of the way……”

Brandon revealed that he’ll be in recovery for a few months, tweeting, “6/9months. Thanks for all the hit ups. I appreciate it!!!!” But…at least things went well. “Successful surgery. Thank you my Family, Friends, Fans.”

And Tae hopped on Instagram to offer fans some insight into how Brandon was feeling….and dude was VERY playful. “…since he can’t get to his phone, @thedealer7 wanted yall to know he “too legit to quit, he coming back next week, full effect, west coast for life” ….. (everything went superb) #bj7 #yeshereallymeantnextweek #heisclowninginhere”

For Brandon’s sake, we hope he sits down for a minute.

Check out their adorable bedside videos….
