Taking to social media, the 53-year-old actress revealed that she’s now walking again on her own.
Posting the update on her Instagram, Ashley wrote that “it is with reverence and quiet awe I offer this update. Today, five months and three weeks after the accident in the Congolese rainforest, I walked again, and in what fashion! I hiked in the #SwissNationalPark.”
Ashley continued on, adding an image of her hike, “Stepping in, I felt in my ease, my natural garment of self, at home in my spirit. My leg and foot, worked beautifully. I walked up hill on uneven surfaces for an hour confidently and came down carefully and easily. I rested in a meadow on God’s fecund earth for hours.”
“The next day, I walked again on a high Alp in #Ticino, working hard and feeling how much I stamina I have to rebuild. This is the road ahead. But I am up to the daily tasks, as I am even carrying firewood into our Alpine hut!”
In her Instagram post, Ashley also added a video that was shot over two months ago, and she was using crutches to help her walk.
“My leg will never be the same. She is a new leg. And I love her. We are buddies. We have a come a long way and we have a fabulous life ahead,” she concluded.
Ashley broke her leg back in February, and suffered severe nerve damage after tripping over a fallen tree while researching the Bonobos, an endangered ape species, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
She then underwent an eight-hour surgery at a hospital in South Africa.
