Now that Teen Mom Amber Portwood is behind bars for the foreseeable future, baby daddy Gary Shirley is the only one caring for their daughter, Leah.

So when we heard that something was “killing” the new nursing student, we were immediately concerned.

But never fear, fans! Gary’s doing alright, just working through an injury from the start of the new year. In case you’ve forgotten, Gary lost the use of his legs while dancing “The Electric Slip” in a nightclub.

The teen dad slipped and hurt his knees and ankles. Yesterday he tweeted, “The 2 steel plates in my ankle is killing me right now from weather.”

We’re glad that Gary’s recovery process is coming along, but concerned that he’s in such pain. Hopefully he’ll be fully healed in no time!
