'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Amy Purdy has 'a rib out of place'
UPI News Service, 04/30/2014
Dancing With the Stars contestant Amy Purdy continued to update her fans via Twitter following her Monday night hospitalization.
"So, Looks like I have a rib out of place and my muscles are in spasm," Purdy wrote to her 31,000 followers. "I am being very proactive in healing up so I can continue this journey."
Purdy, a paralympian snowboarder, was rushed to the hospital before Monday's DWTS episode came to an end when her "back cracked and it just seized up" after facing the judges.
The 34-year-old has been keeping fans updated via Twitter since her hospitalization and encouraging them to "keep the positive healing thoughts and votes coming!!!"
