As you guys are all probably aware, Mayim Bialik suffered some serious injuries the other day during a traffic accident, where she was hit almost head-on when a carful of L.A. tourists inadvertantly blasted her white Volvo with their vehicle. Mayim was rumored to have grevious injuries to both of her hands, and sources around the scene claimed that one of her fingers was practically hanging off, and to that I say, “Yikes.”
Mayim, however, has a lot more things to say than I do, naturally—things a lot more eloquent than just yikes, too, but that’s what you get when you mix Blossom and Amy Farrah Fowler and a lady that I love. From Mayim’s blog, a post that she titled “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.
You can trust us, though, Mayim. Because we think you’re a wonderful lady, and we have nothing but sincere concern for you and your digits. Granted, I *may* run photographs of you in your driveway, but I promise—don’t take it personally. We just want to see as much of you as we can … just not your very bloody hands. We’re not into that, guaranteed.
Glad you’re doing OK, girl!
