After being taken to the hospital last week, Amy Purdy is doing her best to perform tonight on "Dancing with the Stars."

Purdy tweeted Sunday that it's been a rough week, but she's trying.

"This week was a tough one. Trying to dance when your muscles are in severe spasm and pulling on ribs. I'm grateful to be feeling better!!!" she said.

She added, "Lots of healing & positive thoughts happened this week, fingers crossed it will pay off & I'll be back for #DWTS #PurdyHough tomorrow!"

The physical problems all started for the paralympian after she said her upper back cracked and went into spasms last Monday.

The following day, Purdy, 34, updated her fans to her condition.

"So, Looks like I have a rib out of place and my muscles are in spasm.I am being very proactive in healing up so I can continue this journey," she tweeted.

Purdy and her partner Derek Hough have been an inspiration this season with Purdy dancing on two prosthetic legs. She has quickly become a front-runner on the show to make it to the finals, coupled with the fact Hough is a 5-time champ.

Purdy earned four 9's for a total of 36 out of a possible 40 points last week.
