Karen Q had a bit of a post-surgery mishap, noting she almost fell and re-broke her leg that she just had surgery on. Luckily, she remembered her training and remembered to tuck her chin.
My left crutch slipped out from under me today and I almost re-broke my left leg. Instead, I took a back bump on the concrete. I’m 100% okay guys! Wrestling saved my live. #tuckyourchin
