Amy Purdy: In Pain, In Good Hospital Hands

by at . Comments

Amy Purdy remains alive and well on Dancing with the Stars Season 18.

Mostly well, that is.

The impressive contestant was actually hospitalized due to back pain last night, telling Erin Andrews backstage that it was “hard to breathe” because her back just “seized up.”

The Paralympian snowboarder missed the team dance later in the evening to receive treatment and, as of this writing, remains under doctor’s care.

"Thanks for your support everyone!" Purdy Tweeted from the hospital last night. "The [doctor] thinks it's muscular, still waiting on the official word… As we walked away from the judging table my upper back cracked and went into spasms… in pain but I'm in good hands."

Partner Derek Hough paid Purdy a visit and her status remains unclear for next week.

Fingers crossed," she wrote. "We'll know soon enough."

Let’s all wish Purdy a full recovery and let’s all take a look at the performances from last night’s Dancing with the Stars installment:
