Jenna Fischer's summer is pretty much shot to hell

She broke her back in four places when she took a tumble down some marble stairs a couple of weeks ago and it looks like she'll spend the rest of the summer recovering from her injuries. She recently gave an interview about her accident, and says she felt her feet fly out from underneath her and landed hard on the stairs. She says the pain "was consuming and immediate. I never felt anything like it." She's still in pain, but manages to keep a sunny outlook in the interview (isn't that why we adore her?).

Jenna has slowly been on the mend since the May 14th accident. She has been in a lot of pain and has not been able to travel back home to Los Angeles (she's in NYC). She's been taking slow walks in Central Park to try and heal her back. Jenna says she has received warm wishes from cast members of The Office, and even got some cupcakes from Zach Braff, who happened to be at the party where she fell.

Luckily, Jenna had just wrapped shooting a movie with John C. Reilly where they play a skewed version of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash so it's just her summer vacation, and not her work schedule, that is being interrupted. Jenna has to rest and recover for the next 12 weeks, and then it's right back to the set of The Office. You can send her your well wishes at her MySpace page.

Insert clever 'Brokeback Receptionist' comment.
