‘Sometimes life can take a big turn in the blink of an eye. For me, 2022 is not off to a great start… a broken neck (plus a positive Covid test),’ she wrote. 

‘Long story short: I dove into a shallow pool head first and hit my head on the bottom on New Year’s Eve. I [had] X-rays / CT Scans and an MRI to find I have two severe fractures in my neck (C6 & T1),’ she added.

Alli said she was taken to hospital in an ambulance and assessed by a neurosurgeon, who determined no ⁣immediate surgery was required.

She continued: ‘I have been sent home in a hard neck brace that I’ll be living in 24/7 for the next four months as my neck hopefully heals itself.’

‘I am extremely lucky to be alive and/or not quadriplegic as it just missed my spinal cord… the way I see it, four months is a drop in the ocean when it comes to the rest of my happy and healthy life.’

She went on to thank her family and friends for ‘FaceTiming me, cooking me meals and sending kind gifts… it means more than you know.’

‘Happy New Year everyone – sending love and light… hoping the start to your year has been a whole lot better than mine! Stay safe this year and don’t dive into anything when you don’t know its depth!’ she concluded.
