LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Former “Blossom” star Mayim Bialik has reassured fans she will recover following a car accident on Wednesday that injured her right hand.
“I had a horrible accident. I will be okay,” the actress, 36, wrote on her blog on Friday, noting she was typing with her left hand. “I have all my fingers but a very impaired right hand. It was very bloody and scary but I am ok.”
The “Big Bang Theory” star credited her faith with getting her through the pain.
“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,” she wrote.
Mayim was photographed on Friday with a full cast on her right hand and a heavily bandaged left forearm, but said her injuries “could have been so much worse,” and stated she would not be taking any down time from her CBS comedy.
“I will be continuing on ‘The Big Bang Theory’ with no weeks off,” she wrote. “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.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, a vehicle carrying three male tourists from out of the country was turning near La Brea and Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, when they struck the car Mayim was in on Wednesday just before noon, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to Access Hollywood.
