Brooke Shields is getting better. The actress took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal that she is recovering after breaking her femur.
Shields shared a video of her physical therapy treatment, in which she can be seen in a hospital gown, on crutches, slowly and carefully shuffling down a hallway while being guided by a doctor who instructs her on how to use her new crutches. .
“I broke my femur. I started to heal,” Shields wrote in the caption. “No matter what your challenge is, make a positive decision, for yourself, to move forward. #BeginningisNow”
In the video, Shields says he knows how to put “only 20 percent weight” on his foot as he crawls down a hallway.
Shields can also be heard explaining that “the goal is to bend the knee a little bit each time” so that his foot clears the ground and doesn’t drag.
The actress has yet to reveal the cause of her injury, or how long doctors are waiting for her to recover.
