We broke our ankle a year ago, and HSN host Colleen Lopez has had a similar mishap.
On Facebook Lopez posted on Thursday that she had suffered a fractured elbow. She tripped over her pooch.
“Yep, this happened,” she wrote. “I spent the past couple days making new friends in the emergency room and at the Orthopedic Surgeon’s office. It’s always something.”
She then posted a photo of her arm in a stylish sling with a graphic black and white print.
Lopez also posted a photo of “the culprit,” her Yorkie Sophie.
“I tripped and fell over Sophie the other day when I arrived home from work (no kidding),” Lopez wrote.
“She loves to run under our feet and I was trying not to step on her and just fell right on my elbow! I read that 250 people each day in the US end up in the ER from an injury tripping/falling over their pets! Sophie has made up for it with lots of extra kisses. If you have pets that play underfoot – be careful!!!”
We wish Colleen a quick recovery.
