Even though Ronnie recently went through quite a scare while on a business trip down in Florida, undergoing emergency surgery, the Jersey Shore star is now back in business and looking better than ever!

In a recent Wetpaint Entertainment exclusive, Ron’s devoted girlfriend Sammi Sweetheart spoke on his health scare, calling it “terrifying.”

“At first, the doctors thought it was kidney stones, but it turns out, it’s just a hereditary condition he needs to deal with,” the guidette told us. “He was in the hospital twelve days. Things are better now — not back to normal, but better.”

Ron recently Instagrammed an adorable pic of him with his little sister, smiling for the camera in a pair of fresh shades, a black t-shirt and what looks like a chain. That’s our Ron! He definitely looks great, and word on Twitter is that he’s been hitting the gym and continuing on with his beloved GTL. You know Ronnie’s back to normal if he’s getting his GTL on...

“Since we’ve been back, we’ve started living a lot healthier,” Sammi said. “We’re keeping the booze away and working out more, eating better. We’re also just trying to be more positive and happier people." We can definitely tell, as Ron looks amazing in this new pic!

Ron’s sister Gabby looks super cute in the new pic, trying on a baseball cap backwards that we assume belongs to her big brother. And in one pic, she’s even making a kissy face for the camera! So young yet, so fierce already.

“#GrowingUpSoQuick,” Ronnie wrote as a caption. “#AlreadyDuckFacing #Trouble #PeekABoo” Aww, these two are too cute.
