After falling outside of her Nashville home, Carrie Underwood has offered up very few updates on what actually happened. Originally, her publicist shared, “Carrie’s recovery will take some time and she appreciates all prayers and well wishes.”
Then, Carrie shared,”I just wanted let everyone know that I’m doing great. Had surgery on my wrist yesterday & all went well…even though I’ll be setting off airport metal detectors from now on…I’m so thankful for the doctors, nurses, family & friends who’ve been taking such great care of me.”
After not being inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, Carrie shared a letter with fan club members saying, she suffered facial injuries as well as breaking her wrist, “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. 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. 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 Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”
Now, Carrie has shared that during surgery, she had 6 pins and 3 screws inserted into her wrist. In a post to Instagram, Carrie said, “Last check up on the old wrist this morning!! Thanks, Dr. Wurth and my PT angel, Renee, a.k.a. “Bulldog” for fixing me up!!! ? I’m good to go!”
We’re so happy to hear that Carrie is feeling better, especially since releasing the mega-hit “The Champion” last week. Does this mean we might be seeing her perform it live at the Super Bowl? Maybe? Hopefully?
We’re really starting to believe the lyrics to the tune these days for her, “I am invincible, unbreakable/ Unstoppable, unshakeable /They knock me down, I get up again.”
