Buddy shared an Instagram post thanking Dr. Michelle Carlson, nurses, and staff at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, and showing off the "super special cake" he made for them as "a token of [his] immense appreciation." The post began with a photo of himself and Dr. Carlson, posing together as he holds up his hand and from there we see a few screenshots of the over-the-top cake.

The creation is massive and made to look like the hospital's headquarters. At the base are cakes resembling a doctor's coat and scrubs, and at the top of cake appears to be a small cake that reads "HSS" with a hand sticking out of it: "I could never thank them enough for all they have done to help me on this journey to a full recovery," he says in the post.

In a post by the hospital, you can see the full cake a bit more clearly, and see the hand is giving a thumbs up.

Buddy suffered a severe injury to his dominant right hand following a freak accident at his home bowling alley in September. He's since documented his road to recovery on Instagram, as well as in a new "Road to Recovery" special that aired on TLC over the holidays. At the time of the filming, he revealed he had only regained about 15 percent of his strength in his hand back.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
