Who knew post-op recovery could be so romantic?

After undergoing surgery, actress Kaley Cuoco woke up to a sweet sight: her newlywed husband Ryan Sweeting by her side.

“Coming out of sinus surgery and the first thing I see is my beautiful angel of a man, he’s right there. Always,” she captioned a snapshot of the couple cuddling on Instagram.

And in between snuggling up to Cuoco, who in the photo is wearing a hospital gown and has a nasal tube in place, tennis pro Sweeting spent time tending to his favorite patient.

“He’s taking amazing care of me. I love my noodle. He’s perfection,” the Big Bang Theory star added.

Before the procedure, Cuoco, 29, and Sweeting – who will celebrate their first wedding anniversary on New Year’s Eve – got into the Christmas spirit with their pack of pooches.

“My 3 little Christmas elves,” the actress wrote, sharing a picture of her dogs dressed in their holiday apparel.
