Gabby Douglas is one of the Final Five, the group of five female gymnasts from the U.S. who competed in the Rio Olympics. While the whole squad rolled up at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, she was noticeably absent! Unfortunately, she had to be hospitalized earlier that day.
Her rep told the Associated Press, "Gabby is back in the hospital tonight being treated for a seriously infected past mouth injury. She continues to have deep swelling and adverse reactions to medications.”
Yikes! On Sunday, she shared that she was discharged from the hospital and resting at home. Unfortunately, she couldn't join Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, Laurie Hernandez, and Simone Biles when they presented an award on stage. However, she was cheering them on from her bed!
