The Disney on Ice skater who was hospitalized after a serious fall during a show in Minnesota is thanking fans for the support after the life-threatening accident.

On Wednesday, Anastasia Olson, 31, posted a series of photos from her performance as Princess Belle in Disney on Ice’s rendition of Beauty and the Beast while reflecting on the “scary” injury. 

“I'm overwhelmed with emotions and love from everyone over the last week,” she wrote. “I've felt every single prayer, and it's helped me get through this scary time. I can't help but feel so blessed. My heart sends so much love to you all, and if I've learned anything it's to never take life for granted 💛”

Olson was injured Feb. 10 during the 11 a.m. show at Target Center in Minneapolis and rushed to the hospital.

“The skater who portrayed Belle was injured while performing a lift during a pair skating part of the routine and fell. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment,” a spokesperson for Feld Entertainment, the parent company of Disney on Ice, said in a previous statement to PEOPLE.

In the comment section of Olson’s post, a few parents left messages saying their children were at the show when the accident occurred and were wondering how she was doing. Olson commented back to a few, telling them to let the kids know that “Belle is ok and recovering 🥺❤️”

Days earlier, Olson returned to social media with a quote from author Alex Elle about healing on her Instagram Story.

“Gentle Reminder: In your sense of darkness, may you remember that your inner light cannot be dimmed,” she wrote. “No matter what you’re walking through, you will return to yourself. Trust and believe that you are healing. Always — Alex Elle.”

Although she didn’t share any updates on her health, Olson also liked numerous comments left under her last photo wishing her a quick recovery.

Last week, officials at Hennepin County Medical Center told PEOPLE that Olson was classified as being in “satisfactory condition.” This means she has an “excellent or good prognosis,” according to the hospital’s website. Patients who are listed as “satisfactory” are also conscious and have stable vitals.

Just days prior, the hospital told PEOPLE that the skater was initially in “serious condition.”

No additional information on Olson’s health condition has been released.

Disney On Ice appreciates the well wishes from our fans as our team member recovers.” Feld’s statement noted.
