Back in November, Carrie Underwood fell down some steps outside her house in Nashville and now the American Idol is telling her fans that her injuries were much more serious than we thought. We knew she broke her wrist, but she also scratched up her face really bad. So bad, she was rushed into surgery and got 40-50 stitches on her face.
Over the weekend, she gave her fans this update, “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.” Adding, “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’ve still got a ways to go in the recovery process, but it’s encouraging to see every day be a little better than the last.”
While she admits she is not ready to go in front of the camera, she is ready to go behind the mic. In other words, she is returning to the studio next week to record some new music.
No matter how she looks, we are still going to love her. Yes, she is beautiful on the outside but she is even more gorgeous on the inside. We did not just fall in love with her for her Face on Idol, we also fell in love with her heavenly voice and warm personality. That is why she has been asked to host so many shows.
Get better soon Carrie, and know we are here for you scars and all. Let Jesus take the wheel and do his magic.
