Amy Van Dyken HospitalJust 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!"

I don't mean to sound insensitive, but how does one plummet 5-7 feet off of a "side walk"??

She seems like she has what it takes to make a comeback. I was in a bad motorcycle crash and rehabilitation was tough.
