Brooke Shields is on the mend. The actress took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal that she's recovering after breaking her femur.
Shields shared a video of her physical therapy treatment, in which she can be seen in a hospital gown, on crutches, shuffling slowly and carefully down a hallway as she's guided by a doctor who instructs her on how to use her new crutches.
"Broke my femur. Beginning to mend," Shields wrote in the caption. "No matter what your challenge is, make a positive choice, for yourself, to move forward. #BeginningisNow"
In the video, Shields says she knows to put "Only 20 percent weight" on her foot as she slowly progresses down a hall.
