Even though Mariah Carey rocked some very stylish arm slings after dislocating her shoulder in July, it was a very difficult injury.

The singer posted a lengthy message on her Facebook page to her "lambs," detailing her challenging experience the last three months.

"Getting through this injury has been the toughest experience of my life," the Grammy winner wrote on Friday, Oct. 11.

Luckily, Nick Cannon's wife is back on the mend and on her way to a full recovery.

"It's a huge deal, it should have taken eight months and even my doctors can't believe it," she says. "It's been a long journey, the physical therapists have been incredible and I am very grateful to all of them for helping me."

While people expected Mariah to be back and healthy in no time, "it didn't happen because my hand was still in tremendous pain and it took this long for it to heal." She also credits rest and working night and day to get to this point.

Glad to hear you are doing well, Mariah!

But the message wasn't only about her shoulder; she also teased "a lot of excitement" and a new album that she will reveal more details about in the not so distant future.

"This is, to me, one of the most important albums I've ever made in my life," she explains. "If you're a lamb, a fan, or just a human being that needs to feel good, happy, sad, miserable, joyous... ‘I gotcha' (said like Roc- you haven't heard how he says it yet but you will soon, it's a complete+total classic!)"

Daaahlings, get excited!
