I Had an Accident & Thank God I’m Okay

I had a horrible accident. I will be okay. I have all my fingers but a very impaired right hand. It was very bloody and scary but I am ok. A man named Tim and another man whose name I don’t know saved me from losing a lot of blood and helped me talk to my husband at the scene. I am grateful to them.

I am a deeply religious person who used prayer and deep breathing to keep me going all the way from the accident to the ER to surgery 6 hours later, no medication until surgery.

I didn’t tear any artery, nerve, or tendons. It could have been so much worse. I will have a long recovery and my assistant Brandon will help type my blogs for now. He won’t write them, I’ll dictate.

I will be continuing on The Big Bang Theory with no weeks off; they are so good to me and I love my job and the support I get from my buddies on the cast and our loving staff and crew.

I implore you to not trust gossip media. And don’t support publications who use photos from photographers hiding in my driveway. That’s just not cool.

This Shabbat, appreciate your body. Appreciate the capacity for strength. And please drive safely.

Shabbat Shalom.
