Mayim Bialik has been on her blog since Wednesday’s car accident, but she hadn’t really been out and about in the days following a horrific car accident, apart from heading to work. On Friday, however, the 36-year-old actress hopped out of bed and left her Los Angeles home, looking as if she was feeling a lot better, or at least had some pretty nice painkillers to back her up.
People caught the The Big Bang Theory actress as she was leaving her house, noting she had a ton of gauze on her left forearm and was wearing a pretty hefty cast and bandage on her right hand. The injury sounds pretty difficult, but Bialik says she was actually pretty lucky.
“I didn’t tear any artery, nerve, or tendons. It could have been so much worse. I will have a long recovery…”
For a while there, the accident seemed as if it might be a pretty close shave. Rumors abounded about the breadth of the former child star’s injury and early reports guessed the actress might even lose a finger. Luckily the inhabitants of the car that hit Bialik—a group of tourists from Chile—were perfectly fine, and the actress seems to be recovering, herself. Although, from the looks of her bandage, it may not have ended up being a close shave. I wonder how The Big Bang Theory plans to integrate the cast into the show's plot?
