Now, the 34-year-old is opening up to tell her fans she “might look a bit different,” disclosing she received over 40 stitches to her face as well. In a blog post for her fan club members, she penned about the incident:

“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 [Underwood’s husband] Mike [Fisher] that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”

Wow!! That sounds super serious!

Carrie continued, adding she’s still in the healing process:

“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. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”

Despite it all, she’s “determined to make 2018 amazing,” letting her fans know:

“And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different. 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.”

Aww! We’re just glad it wasn’t worse for Carrie!

While she hasn’t posted a ton of pictures of herself since the accident, she did share a recent selfie to Instagram:

And after running into Below Deck star Adrienne Gang earlier in December, the reality TV starlet shared on Twitter:

Get well soon, girlie!
