‘So. I broke my wrist yesterday during a backhand spring in a charity video for Covid lighting in my front yard. (True story) It was my “special skill” that no one knows I can do. (That was the premise of the video and I was a gymnast), “she explained via the post caption.
“The first nailed … the second nailed me. Full crunch fest. It seemed as if my hand had escaped from my arm. I could not believe it. Went in great deep breaths and sobs. And sob and breathe. ‘
According to Abigail, the ambulance arrived and rushed her to the hospital.
“It was really scary doing it alone and now taking ANY energy from Covid patients and my son was at home and he saw me in so much pain.”
Brave: Although she had to go through Friday’s surgery alone, she wrote that she was grateful that ‘many of you were with me in my mind. I did not feel alone. Thank you!’
She thanked the paramedics who came to her aid and comforted her during her time of need.
They hated having to wear masks because they want their patients to see their faces and adjust to the new normal. I could feel their caring energy mask and all. They crossed me out, ”she continued.
Spencer thanked her, “health heroes,” along with friends Stephanie Schuster and Alyssa Jacobson for taking care of her.
“I’m in a lot of pain. I have never broken or underwent or operated on anything. Unfortunately, surgery will start tomorrow, “she said, adding,” I’m in a good mood. ‘
