Carrie Underwood revealed on her official fan club website Monday (Jan 1st) that she needed more than 40 stitches in her face following a hard fall in November at her Nashville home.
The fall forced Carrie to cancel her appearance at the Country Rising benefit. Reports at the time were that she suffered a broken wrist and cuts, but the true extent of the injuries was kept quiet.
“In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well,” Carrie wrote in her blog post. “I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike (Fisher, Underwood’s husband) that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”
“When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different,” she writes. “I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”
Last week, Carrie posted an Instagram photo of herself, with her face almost completely covered by a scarf.
