So after dancing for many many many years, I’ve now added injury to my dance resume..yikes, not good, or is it. I’ve never been injured like this, and I’ve always said, that I’m very happy to not have had any injuries that would interfere with dancing. Well I spoke too highly and I spoke too soon.
While in L.A rehearsing for Carnival “A Choreographers Ball” I went down in pain. I injured my left knee bad enough to be put out of commission and to end up in a leg brace with crutches.
May I add that when I got injured I wasn’t even in L.A for two full days.:(
But on the bright side I’m Ok, I’m well, I’m breathing, and happy. I’m definitely facing some challenges but its nothing that can’t be solved with faith.
Right now, I could hardly walk. But I didn’t say couldn’t walk. I’m able to move on snail time, with the help of crutches if needed be.
Which is major because I was not able to move my left leg at all last week.
Both Knees (The one that’s swollen is the injured knee)
Forgive my ashy knees lol
In no way am I making a mockery out of something extremely serious.
Yes I’m in shock, yes I’m sad I wasn’t able to perform in L.A, yes yes yes, to being and feeling a million and one emotions all at once.
But this is where I am right now, and right now is where I need to be.
I can’t go back, I could only move forward, and forward is where I’m going. I know it will be tough, but I’m curious to see how I pull through.
I’m not going to go through the details of exactly what happened. Because I don’t even know, all I know is I twisted, heard a pop, and fell to the ground, in pain from head to toe.
After seeing the doctor, I was told nothing is broken, I do have a sprained knee, however I need to have an MRI to find out if anything was torn. And I will keep you all posted on the info.
I thank everyone for sending me love and best wishes.
I know there are some questions to answer in regards to classes. So I saved that for another blog post. CLICK HERE
