Sarah Hyland “Torn From Work” & Rushed to Hospital for Unknown Reason
Many people celebrated National Selfie Day yesterday by posting cute, perfectly filtered pictures of themselves, but Sarah Hyland took a different approach. The Modern Family actress shared a heartbreaking image of herself in the hospital with an incredibly swollen face and a powerful message that makes you think about living with chronic illness.
“Sometimes a selfie is more than just a good angle and feelin cute,” she captioned the picture. “This time for #nationalselfieday I’ve decided to share my truth. As painful as it.”
She continued, “So here is my face that was torn from work against my will. But I’m very grateful it was. Health should always come first #stayhealthymyfriends.”
In another Instagram story, Sarah revealed that she was actually admitted to the hospital on Monday, June 18, and hasn’t been able to leave since.
The 27-year-old didn’t reveal why she is currently in the hospital, but she has battled kidney dysplasia for years and underwent a transplant thanks to her father in 2012. But despite her health improving from the transplant, she still faces chronic pain and health issues. In fact, she calls 2017 “the worst medical year of [her] life.”
But despite it all, SH tries her hardest to keep her chin up and encourage
“Please do not ever feel alone in your #chronicillness PLEASE,” she tweeted a few months ago. “I know how easy it is to feel that way. Trust me. But as someone who has been through it pretty much nonstop for my entire life I have felt what you just told me a lot of the time. But there’s a huge community of us.”
Get better soon, Sarah!
