“In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well,” Underwood said in a letter to her fan club in January. “I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.

“I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different,” Underwood said. “I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”
