Back in November it was reported that Carrie Underwood took a pretty serious fall where she broke her wrist. Now of course we all know that Carrie is a national treasure so I took the news pretty hard.
Some new information about this mysterious fall has come out though and I am really upset about it. Honestly, probably way more emotional than I should be about someone I never met before, but Carrie is basically an angel, so there’s that.
Today, she wrote a letter to her fan club and it explains that she actually had to get 40 stitches in her face because of the fall.
In a letter obtained by E News, Carrie states.
“Most of you know that I tripped and fell and broke my wrist in November. I’m still doing regular physical therapy for that, but all is coming along. There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up, it’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life. In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [my husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in. Now, here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. Here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful, I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”
“I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to share things with you along the way, and when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different. I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”
Let me be clear. Carrie, no matter how you look you will still be idolized and adored.
Are you emotional about all of this? I know I am.
