Brooke incurred the injury after falling off her balance board. 

‘I was on one of those balance boards that I have been doing every day,’ she said on Today last month.

‘It was just something that I like to do. I’ve done it on Instagram and I stupidly switched my focus and I flew up in the air and just hit perfectly.’

‘I’m focusing on just recovery,’ Brooke added. ‘This is really probably the biggest thing that I have to physically go through, but what am I going to do about it?’ 

Brooke announced her injury last month with a video of herself slowly walking through a hospital hallway on crutches.

‘Broke my femur. Beginning to mend. No matter what your challenge is, make a positive choice, for yourself, to move forward,’ she wrote in the caption.

She also posted video from her physical therapy session, where she gingerly walked up a small staircase with the help of her therapist.

‘One step at a time… Beginning is Now!’ she wrote.
