Judd knew that her fans and well-wishers would be worried so she reached out to them through social media. She updated her fans about her condition via a long Instagram post.

So what’s in store for the future? It’s a long period of rest and recovery for Judd. Her bones have been reset but it will take a long time for her to heal. She is still in hospital and will be for some time while doctors try to make it as good as before. It is painful and a tough time for Judd and her family. However, Judd is facing all this trauma and pain with a positive attitude. She said on Instagram “I am a woman of the wilderness, as you know. Accidents do happen.” Brave words indeed! We wish and hope that Ashley Judd recovers completely and is back doing what she does best. Acting and caring for noble causes as she has done for so long.
