(WJW) – We wish Stefani Schaefer a speedy recovery!
The longtime FOX 8 News in the Morning anchor is recovering from surgery.
Stefani shared on social media that she was working in the garden a few weeks ago when her foot slipped under her and the accident took her to hospital.
She explains in the post that she “heard and felt bursts and tears.” The injury tore his hamstring from the pelvic bone.
She said: “It is such a rare injury that there are only a few doctors in the country who perform this delicate and delicate operation. And thank goodness Dr. James Rosneck of the Cleveland Clinic sports medicine team (and the Cavaliers’ team doctor) is one of the best in the country and operated on me last Thursday.
Stefani is unable to walk for six weeks to two months, or “most likely much longer”. She is also unable to sit up normally.
“It will be a long, painful and slow process to start walking again,” Stefani wrote in her post.
But, she is anxious and excited to return to the FOX 8 anchor office.
“I’m doing everything I can to get back on the air on FOX 8. Thank you FOX 8 for being so understanding and supporting me during this terrible time for me. I can’t wait to get back on the air! And I will continue to update you on my very slow and tedious progress!”
