Jeremy Renner Is Overwhelmed With Emotions After His Nephew Sent Him THIS Note

Even though Renner has been receiving an avalanche of messages from his fans, nothing could have prepared him for the note his little nephew sent him recently. In fact, the "28 Weeks Later" actor's emotions were tested when he was done reading the short letter highlighting two key issues. Showing off the adorable child's writing skills, the 52-year-old uploaded a snap of a sheet of paper with the words:

"I am very lucky because my uncle is hawk eye (witch [sic] is one of the Avengers. I am also very lucky that my uncle is alive from the accident."

The Academy Awards nominee simply wrote, "Love my little man ?❤️?. Bless you Auggie," across the image. In a follow-up update, he dropped a photo of two sloth plush toys hugging each other, along with the words, "My inside feelings."

While it is hard to tell how people reacted to the Instagram Stories, it is worth noting that Renner sustained multiple broken bone injuries while trying to rescue his nephew — an adult — from getting crushed by the snow plow. 

As previously reported by The Blast, an incident report from the Nevada sheriff's office stated that the "Love Comes to the Executioner" star was trying to remove his family member from harm's way when he collided with the 14,000-pound tractor on January 1.

"The Pistenbully snow groomer began sliding, causing Renner to exit the vehicle without setting the emergency brake," the redacted report from the Washoe County Sheriff's Office partially read.

The statement further revealed that even though the machine had some mechanical issues, the parking brake would have stopped it from moving — and inflicting harm — if it had been activated. The report then shared that the "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" lead was eventually pulled by the plow and run over by it.

The "House of the Rising Sun" singer was ultimately airlifted to a trauma center where he received speedy medical attention. Renner's rep subsequently announced that he was in "critical but stable condition."

While he has since been released from the hospital — and is undergoing physical therapy at home, the actor is said to have broken over 30 bones, which required two surgeries to repair.

The Blast noted that the "Mission Impossible" actor was determined to do everything he could to recover fully. To that end, he shared a clip that showed him working hard on a Technogym bike to regain strength in his left leg.

The "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" guest actor pedaled from the comfort of a chair while using the black band tool in his left hand to help him navigate the leg movements.

Renner's workout reel came shortly after he informed fans of his upcoming Disney+ show, "Rennervations," in an Instagram post. For the announcement, the "Mayor of Kingstown" star posted a picture of himself and his team working on an old city bus for the show, with the caption:

"Behind the scenes on #rennervations coming soon on @disneyplus around the world! We are cueing up now @disney and @disneyplus to launch this amazing new show." 

After promising that there was more information coming, Renner wrote, "Thank you for your patience … while I am in the shop now, working on me ????." 

Upon giving it hundreds of thousands of likes, the "To Have & to Hold" star's supporters also took to the comment section to applaud and advise him. One fan asked him to take his time and not "overdo it" because his body needed "to heal right."

A second fan claimed that they could not "wait for it to come out in Disney," adding hope that the Critics' Choice Awards winner was "getting stronger n healing stronger every single day."
