Sarah Hyland reveals ‘painful‘ selfie after sudden hospitalization

Sarah Hyland reveals ‘painful‘ selfie after being forced to leave work and go to hospital amid health battle

She‘s remained candid on social media about her battles with kidney dysplasia.

And Sarah Hyland took to on Thursday evening to show an excruciating side effect after being hospitalized due to the disease.

The 27-year-old actress was dressed in a hospital gown and hair net, and used National Selfie Day as a way to show her followers the ‘painful‘ reality surrounding her health.  

Sarah‘s swollen face was front and center in the image as she gave a tired gaze toward the camera wearing a blue-and-white hospital gown. 

‘Sometimes a selfie is more than just a good angle or feelin‘ cute. This time for #NationalSelfieDay, I‘ve decided to share my truth. As painful as it is,‘ Hyland wrote.

She wore a dark green eye mask across her forehead and still managed to look beautiful despite her woes. 

‘So here is my face that was torn from work against my will,‘ she added. ‘But I‘m very grateful it was. Health should always come first.‘

The Modern Family starlet then shared a sweet video from bed as she cuddled up to her puppy.

‘Can‘t wait to come back to my precious angel princess. She‘s perfect and knows exactly what I need at all times,‘ Hyland wrote. ‘This was taken this past Sunday. Day before hospitalization. She was literally telling me to get treatment.‘

As a child, Hyland was diagnosed with kidney dysplasia (a condition that occurs when one or both of a fetus‘ kidneys do not develop normally) and in 2012 she underwent a kidney transplant. 

In May, she revealed some of her health struggles, including how her weight has dropped to 87 pounds, with hopes to one day lift weights again. 

One positive constant in her life is boyfriend of nearly one year, former Bachelorette contestant Wells Adams.

‘It’s been really weirdly normal,‘ he told People TV. ‘That question gets asked a lot because you expect the answer to be like it’s crazy because it’s in the spotlight.‘

 ‘But for whatever reason, it’s been really nice and normal and wonderful.‘

The cute couple met on social media when he messaged her after a round of back-and-forth tweets.
