Mayim Bialik

Mayim Bialik's car accident sure sounded pretty horrible when we heard about it. And, according to the Emmy-nominated actress, it was.

"I had a horrible accident," the Big Bang Theory star wrote today on her blog, noting that she was "lefty typing" due to the damage her other hand sustained in the near head-on collision she was in on Wednesday.

"I will be okay," she continued. "I have all my fingers but a very impaired right hand. It was very bloody and scary but I am ok. A man named Tim and another man whose name I don't know saved me from losing a lot of blood and helped me talk to my husband at the scene. I am grateful to them."

Go Tim, go Anonymous and go Mayim's husband, Michael Stone!

"I am a deeply religious person who used prayer and deep breathing to keep me going all the way from the accident to the ER to surgery 6 hours later, no medication until surgery," wrote Bialik, who concluded her post with a "Shabbat Shalom" to her fans.

And as for the early reports that she was close to losing a finger, Bialik wants to set the record straight on that.

"I didn't tear any artery, nerve, or tendons," noted the brainy thesp, who graduated from UCLA with a degree in neuroscience. "It could have been so much worse. I will have a long recovery and my assistant Brandon will help type my blogs for now. He won't write them, I'll dictate.

"I will be continuing on The Big Bang Theory with no weeks off; they are so good to me and I love my job and the support I get from my buddies on the cast and our loving staff and crew."

A tough cookie, indeed: She was back on the set Thursday after having surgery, assuring that she had "all 10 digits" with her.

"I implore you to not trust gossip media," Bialik concluded. "And don't support publications who use photos from photographers hiding in my driveway. That's just not cool.

"This Shabbat, appreciate your body. Appreciate the capacity for strength. And please drive safely."

Shabbat Shalom to you, Mayim.
