Wendy Venturini continues to improve

NASCAR broadcaster Wendy Venturini, who was struck by a car while running June 23 in Novato, California, provided an update on her Facebook page a month into her recovery.

Among her injuries, Venturini suffered a skull fracture and concussion. She was hospitalized until June 26. Because of her condition, she could not fly. Toyota provided a motorcoach to take her and her husband back to North Carolina. She returned home June 30.

In her update, Venturini, a broadcaster for the Performance Racing Network, wrote:

“I don’t look differently. But skull fractures are no joke.šŸ¤• The pressure and pain still on the back left side of my head are straight up legit. Cognitively, I feel good. šŸ™ŒšŸ¾šŸ™‡šŸ»ā€ā™€ļøšŸ§  I’m still sarcastic. So that’s encouraging. šŸ˜

“My ear is still clogged partially with fluid from my skull fracture. While it’s dissipating, it’s still annoying. I feels/sounds like when you have water in your ear. They said 4-6weeks to clear. I have another audio test to do again.
