The Made in Chelsea star, 32, has been open about her health problems seven months after the birth of her son Leo.
Ryan first shared a message on his Instagram Stories on Wednesday (13 July) to show his gratitude for the support from his followers.
“Thank you to the people who have messaged me today sending well wishes to myself and Louise. I’ll update when I can. Thank you again.”
The 31-year-old dad then shared a photo of the couple’s son Leo playing with a rainbow-coloured Xylophone.
“We miss you mummy,” Ryan captioned the adorable picture.
Later on Wednesday evening, Ryan shared an intimate selfie from the bath tub after putting Leo to bed.
“Baby is down,” the Instagram Stories caption read. “So I’m taking 10 to soak in the tub.
“Weirdly, Home Alone is on TV so I’m watching that. Anything to lift the spirit I guess.”
On Wednesday, Louise Thompson’s PR team confirmed that the reality TV star returned to hospital for the good of her mental health.
The team also confirmed that she will be taking a break from social media to focus on her recovery.
The 32-year-old has been open about her struggles with post-natal depression since she gave birth last year and shared that she feels like she has ‘brain damage.’
Louise’s admission came after she ‘died and came back to life’ following serious complications while giving birth to her son.
Louise spent a month in hospital recovering from the traumatic experience, but has since struggled with depression, anxiety and PTSD.
She also sought medical treatment recently after doctors told her that she had ‘alarming blood test results’, however, she was released soon after.
On 1 July, Ryan gave an update from the hospital waiting room after Louise received her blood test results.
"At this moment I don't know how serious this is, but it feels devastating to be sat outside a hospital waiting room, seven months on from Louise giving birth,” he shared on Instagram at the time.
Ryan's post came hours after Louise shared a picture of herself looking upset on Instagram. "I just want someone to fix me," she wrote.
She added: "My poor body and brain are all over the place."
