She was recently injured in a fall at their lake house in Georgia. She was holding Shane's new baby and got tripped up by either the dog or the other child in the room (no one is really sure, as Shane and his wife were in the other room). She basically saved the baby and sacrificed her body by taking the full force of the fall onto the hardwood floor with absolutely no way to brace herself. Here are her injuries:
- Broken femur in one leg (completely broken, clean break) Hairline fracture in the other.
- 7 broken ribs
- Broken collar bone
- Hurt her shoulder fairly bad as well.
She was taken to the big hospital in Athens and underwent surgery. She had rods placed in both legs and is expected to be in the hospital until Sunday.
Georgia Coach Mark Richt and his wife were among the visitors to the hospital that day after hearing the news.
Cheryl is in good spirits and was even apologizing to her daughter in law being as they had a "girls" trip scheduled for the upcoming week in which they can obviously no longer attend.
