The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's battle with Lyme disease has been openly documented on the show, and for years, she's been open offscreen as well about her battle to regain her health. Now, Hadid is sharing photos on Instagram that give fans a behind-the-scenes look at her latest treatment plans and show how optimistic she is that she may finally beat her disease.

On Tuesday, Hadid shared a photo of herself in a hospital bed, playing cards with some friends. She captioned the shot, "I am seeking, I am striving and I am in it to win it with all of my heart............ #LymeDiseaseAwareness #TvamSurgery #LastChapter #SearchingForACure #RemissionInSight."

According to Daily Mail, Hadid was hospitalized to recover from a transvascular autonomic modulation, or TVAM procedure. The surgical procedure is relatively new but shows promise for treating patients with multiple sclerosis or autoimmune diseases, like Lyme disease. Judging by her "remission in sight" hashtag on the pic, Hadid is pretty optimistic about what the surgery will do for her.

The site says the surgery involves making a small incision and then using a catheter to expand the patient's jugular vein. It's apparently not a widely used procedure, but here's hoping it helps Hadid with her illness.

In the weeks leading up to her surgery, Hadid also shared details of her raw organic diet, which included drinking a tea made from lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne.
