Carrie Underwood 40-50 Stitches

posted by Amanda Jo -

Back in November Carrie Underwood had a fall which she now refers to as a "freak accident". Not only did it lead to a broken wrist, but 40-50 stitches in her face. She posted a letter to her fan club letting them know the extent, but she avoided the details of the injury just that she may look a little different when she once again feels comfortable in front of a camera. 

Carrie wrote this to her fans... 

"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."
