The American actress had shattered her leg earlier this year in Congo, and finally, she is walking.
The 53-year-old actress has kept her fans updated with her condition and has been documenting her rehab process during Her hard and painful time. She captioned her video. It was a long message about her health update, details about her recovery process, and how grateful she was to her doctors and fans for taking care of her for the last six months.
Dear friends, it is with reverence and quiet awe I offer this update. Today, five months and three weeks after the accident in the Congolese rainforest, I walked again, and in what fashion!
I hiked in the #Swiss National Park. Stepping in, I felt in my ease, my natural garment of self, at home in my spirit. My leg and foot worked beautifully. I walked uphill on uneven surfaces for an hour confidently and came down carefully and easily. I rested in a Meadow on God’s fecund earth for hours.
The next day, I walked again on a high Alp in #Ticino, working hard and feeling how much stamina I have to rebuild. This is the road ahead.
She further told how much gratitude she felt for her orthopedic surgeon, doctor Phil and wrote,
He, in consultation with doctor Suzanne MacKinnon and doctor Scott Levin, made a very gutsy decision to re-compress my deeply damaged peroneal nerve. The video of my foot moving is unheard of. We expected my foot- If ever-To begin to move in one year. In four months to the day, she blew us all away. Now, after crying while trying to spell the ABCs with a paralyzed foot…. well, You see!
She further talked about her leg,
My leg will never be the same. She is a new leg. And I love her. We are buddies. we have come a long way and we have a fabulous life ahead.
She also updated her followers that she is up to daily tasks And she is even carrying firewood into her Alpine Hut.
The actress had broken her leg in February when she tripped on a tree in a Congo rainforest.
