Playing Sarah Palin's Husband Hospitalized After 'Bad' Snowmobile Accident

Sarah Palin is en route to Alaska to be at her husband's side, after Todd Palin was in a "bad" snowmobile accident on Sunday night.

The former governor was campaigning for Donald Trumpin Florida on Monday-- after giving the GOP frontrunner her endorsement in January -- as news broke that Todd had been hospitalized.

"Todd is our rock... toughest guy I know," Palin wrote on Facebook. "Thank you for your prayers as he recovers following a snowmachine accident last night. You know, your prayers have meant so much to our family over the years and I've not thanked you enough for providing us that shield of faith. God bless you, too!"

NBC News previously reported that the crash was "very serious" and that Todd was in intensive care, and the Trump campaign issued a statement canceling Sarah's appearance, though she ultimately showed up.

"Todd Palin was in a bad snow machine accident last night and is currently hospitalized," a statement released by the Trump campaign said." Governor Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon. Mr. Trump's thoughts and prayers are with the Palin family at this time."

Following the rally, Sarah explained, "As any adventurous Alaskan knows, while you may be down, you're never out. I remember Chris Kyle summed up Todd best -- 'He's Rambo. Straight up Rambo!' On the cross country flights taking me back home now, I'm thinking of all of you, and sincerely appreciating your support."
