Carrie Underwood had over 40 stitches in her face after fall

She reassured fans that she is "determined to make 2018 awesome".

Since the accident, Underwood has kept a low profile on social media, though Gang did share a photo with the American Idol season 4 victor after their December 12 encounter at an exclusive resort. "It's insane how a freak random accident can change your life", she wrote on her fan page, according to Entertainment Tonight. She wants her fans to "understand why [she] might look a bit different" when she does get back in front of the camera. Not only did she end up breaking her wrist in the fall, but she also hurt her face and needed surgery. "She had a wrist brace on, but I didn't think much of it until I saw the headlines after I posted our picture together", the reality star, 34, tells Us Weekly exclusively. I honestly don't know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful. Here's what Underwood wrote on a message board to her fan club. "And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way".

The Grammy victor has largely stayed out of the spotlight since her accident, though last week, she posted a selfie on Instagram with most of her face obscured by a scarf from her CALIA by Carrie fitness line. Fans expressed great relief at the first Carrie-sighting since her accident and said that she looked well in the photo. Just last week, for example, Underwood posted the following selfie.

Underwood has still been active on social media in the weeks after her fall.

She added that no matter what, she's determined to make 2018 her best year yet. She joked on Twitter at the time that though she would be "setting off airport metal detectors from now on", she was "doing great" and wanted to thank all the medical professionals who took care of her.

The 34-year-old Grammy victor, who is the face of Olay and Almay, said that for some time she wasn't ready to talk about it.
