breaking newsJust days after her spinal cord was severed in an ATV crash, U.S. Olympic swimming great Amy Van Dyken just posted a SMILING photo from her hospital room ... assuring her fans she's "doing great."
This woman is incredible.
As we previously reported, Van Dyken was rushed to a hospital in Scottsdale, AZ for emergency surgery on Friday after her ATV plummeted 5-7 feet off of a sidewalk ... leaving her without feeling in the lower half of her body.
Amy's family insisted she was trying to stay positive about her situation -- and moments ago, she posted a hospital room selfie, flashing a smile, and including a message, "Doing great today. My room is the most decorated in ICU. Thx for ur thoughts & prayers!"
