A visibly shocked Phoebe let out a scream before a smiling Poppy pulled her back onto the sofa.

The video then ended abruptly, just as Phoebe began to fall backwards, swinging her right arm in an attempt to regain her balance.

‘Finding your light … with children …’, she wrote in the post.

“It’s day two after yet another procedure to get some relief from the muscle spasms associated with spinal cord injuries (in time for the hard work of the holidays),” she wrote.

Phoebe has previously spoken of her battle with chronic back pain, which began with a skiing accident in 2012 that “changed her spine forever.”

Phoebe said she “didn’t listen” to her body after surgery or followed her doctors’ advice, instead continuing to play tennis, ski, and run “on concrete every morning.”

After ignoring her specialist’s recommendations, she spent “weeks in the hospital, unable to move.”

“Two children and countless procedures, injections, scans and surgeries later, I live with chronic pain,” she admitted.

She added, “It took me years to acknowledge and accept my diagnosis.”
