No it’s not Halloween, though when you see the photo that Billy Ray Cyrus tweeted of his son, you may think differently. According to tweets from Billy Ray Cyrus and his son Braison, the 18 year old had a tonsillectomy this past week and then over the weekend, an artery opened up creating what you will see in the photo tweeted below.

Braison is second to youngest of Billy and wife Tish’s five children; Trace, 23, Brandi, 24, Miley, 19, Braison, 18 and Noah, 12. Billy also has a 20 year old son, Christopher, from a previous relationship.

See the photo here! (Not for those with a weak stomach!) 

Tweeting from his hospital bed, Braison attempts to explain what happened.

Country turned pop star daughter Miley Cyrus was fairly quiet on twitter in regards to the family emergency, but did finally retweet her dad’s tweet thanking God and hospital staff for taking care of Braison.

If you have plans for getting your tonsils out, you may want to consult Cyrus, who appears to be second guessing the procedure.

The family did however, get some good news this past week, as Billy Ray and daughter Miley’s duet, “Ready, Set, Don’t Go” went platinum! See the unofficial video with lyrics here.

Here is the music video for “Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” the lead single from Billy Ray Cyrus’ studio album Home At Last.
