This could have ended very differently.
As we previously reported, Todd Palin was seriously injured in a snowmobile accident in Alaska Sunday night, and while his wife Sarah Palin is far from our favorite celeb, we'd never wish harm on her or her family.
That's why we're excited to report that despite two collapsed lungs, multiple broken bones, and a bruised liver, the 51-year-old is currently expected to recover.

The former GOP Vice Presidential Nominee shared an update on her husband's health on Facebook Thursday afternoon, saying:
Though we absolutely do NOT agree with Sarah Palin's viewpoints — especially her recent comments at a Donald Trump rally — we are still concerned about her husband Todd Palin's health after his very serious snowmobile accident.
As we reported, Todd was involved in a crash and was taken to intensive care where was in critical condition but stable.

A source close to the situation revealed Todd suffered "a variety of internal injuries" that include eight broken ribs and two collapsed lungs. Sarah's husband is reportedly waiting to undergo surgery.
Kevin Kastner, the executive director of Iron Dog, the organizer of a 2000-mile snowmobile race that former politician's husband competes in, revealed to People that he spoke with Todd's father and learned:
As we told you earlier this month, Bristol Palin and baby daddy #2 Dakota Meyer reached an interim custody agreement — but now a more permanent ruling has been put in place as an Alaska Superior Court Judge ruled that the former couple must share both legal and physical custody of their daughter.
According to court papers obtained by DailyMail, the judge ultimately decided it would be in the best interest of baby Sailor Grace to remain in Alaska with Bristol, but Meyer will be able to visit the wee one from Kentucky twice a month for four consecutive days each.
Although Sarah Palin's daughter originally objected to visits longer than four hours due to her breastfeeding schedule, text messages sent to Meyer prove that the momma-of-two is actually only breastfeeding Sailor at night.

On Wednesday, Bristol Palin took to Instagram to share a cryptic message with her followers shortly after her ex-fiancé Levi Johnston confirmed he won joint custody of their son, Tripp. Oof!
