Carrie Underwood fans have been concerned about the superstar singer since she took a serious fall on her front steps in November.  The fall caused her to cancel an appearance at a benefit show in Nashville because of a broken wrist that was so serious it required surgery.

A few days after her surgery, Carrie’s husband Mike Fisher shared a poignant post on his Instagram that made it seem as if that tumble down her steps may have been something worse but little details were still given.

Thank you!

Yesterday, Carrie reached out to members of her fan club in a year-end wrap-up letter and it revealed details of the injuries she sustained in that fall and they were much more extensive than we realized.

Carrie explained to fans she is still receiving physical therapy for her wrist, but then she writes,

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.

She goes on to say,

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 … 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same,” she continues. “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.

Carrie says that she has a long way to go in the recovery process, but she remains optimistic and hopeful telling fans,

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.”

As far as we can tell, Carrie has only been photographed once since she took the tumble and she looked fabulous!  Carrie was spotted out and about at the gym by reality TV star Adrienne Gang who posted the photo on her Twitter page.
