Lisa Curry has spent a couple of nights in intensive care following complications with a hip replacement.
The Olympian, 61, shared several images of herself in hospital on Thursday after injuring herself in Yukon, Canada.
Lisa explained she had a hip replacement about four weeks ago and spent time in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to treat low blood pressure.
She injured herself last January while husky dog sledding. A slip on the ice caused her to fall and break her hip.
‘The husky’s went across the ice no problem but the sled slid, and kept sliding,’ Lisa explained.

She went on to say the sled dogs will ‘keep going’ if you let go of the ropes.
‘You can’t let go of the sled because the dogs will keep going,’ she said.
‘So I held on and held on until I couldn’t and eventually fell still holding onto the sled which immediately puts the brakes on, so the dogs stop … and fell on my hip.’
Lisa said her hip had been sore all year, but she initially thought it was muscular.
It was only after a CT scan she saw her hip had fractured bone in the ball and socket joint.

Lisa thanked daughter Morgan (pictured) for driving her around
‘I couldn’t have it operated on before our European and USA tours so just lived on painkillers for that 10-week trip,’ she said.
Lisa insured she’s on the mend and starting to swim again, but she’s also had to learn to walk without a limp following the procedure.
‘Learning how to walk without a limp, doing simple tasks again. But geez, you don’t realise how many things you take for granted – putting a sock or undies on is like dressing a wriggly wet octopus !! So exhausting,’ she said.

She went on to thank her husband Mark for ‘putting up with her’ as well as her daughter, Morgan, who drove her around so she could still work.
Lisa’s fans wished the former Olympian a speedy recovery.
‘Speedy recovery legend,’ one fan wrote.
‘Oh Lisa, what an adventure that was for you. Sending you healing vibes, dad just had a hip replacement two weeks ago, watching his recovery has been so good to see, finally out of the pain he was in. Lots of love to you,’ another wrote.
‘Speedy recovery to you Lisa. Sending you well wishes,’ yet another wrote.

It comes after Lisa, who lost daughter Jaimi three-years-ago, shared a heartbreaking tribute in September.
‘Three years ago, our beautiful daughter Jaimi took her last breath. We all love you and miss you everyday. Feels like yesterday,’ she wrote next to the photos.
‘It’s been a s**t and sad week, where I’ve needed lots of hugs and have been constantly wiping my tears away. I tell myself to breathe, it’s a bad day, not a bad life.’
‘I need to change that talk to be more positive and give myself permission that it’s ok to move forward. Moving on doesn’t mean letting go. I will never let her go.
‘Am I ok? Yes, maybe, sometimes, no… Depends on the day,’ she added.
