Patrick Schwarzenegger, the 18 year-old son of Arnold Schwarzengger and Maria Shriver, has returned to the ski slopes after his skiing accident. People magazine reports today (March 12, 2012) that the teenager decided not to let his recent incident spoil his fun and headed back to the mountains in Sun Valley, Idaho.
On Saturday, March 10, 2012, Patrick posted a picture on his Twitter page, showing him on a spinal board, or stretcher, with an oxygen mask. The picture was accompanied by the message "Little ski accident today. Some bruises and stiches down back and but. Thanks to sun valley doctors for everything." A little later, he posted a picture of the injury; a deep cut to his back that had blood pouring down his body and onto his trousers and underwear." The following day, though, he had clearly decided not to let the injury halt his holiday fun and posted a message that read "Appreciate all the messages, love all you. I'm actually feeling really good today, and I even went skiing again today. Thanks again!!"
