Amy shared the news with fans on social media

The 61-year-old crashed her bike on 27 July and was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she was treated for cuts and abrasions.

Although she was given a stable diagnosis she was kept in for monitoring.

It came two years after she underwent heart surgery when she was diagnosed with a rare congenital heart defect PAPVR (partial anomalous pulmonary venous return).

"My own birth defect was an encroaching killer, and I had no idea," she told fans in 2021. "So my advice would be, take care of yourself, the world needs you. Even if you feel like everything is fine, you don’t really know what’s going on on the inside. We need the gift of each other, so even if you go, ’Oh, I got nothing on the radar,’ just get somebody else to check it out."
