l2daisygirl Posted April 5, 2005 Report Share Posted April 5, 2005 My daughter's studio just finished participating as guests in another studio's spring "festival". Little did I know, as I was watching her dance in the first of two shows, (watching as only a Mother does), that she was dancing and crying at the same time. It seems she has an exacerbation of an achilles tendonitis/posterior impingement of her ankle. Needless to say, she was pulled from the second show. Unfortunately, our "festival" of sorts is this weekend, in which, not only was she dancing, but also partcipating in our studio's Musical Theatre Company for the second act as well. Tickets are purchased, Grandparents are in town, expectations are high...and it doesn't look like she will be dancing. I've tried to explain that yes, I am sad, but not so much that she will not be dancing, but sad that she has worked so hard, (perhaps to a fault), and will not get to show the fruits of her labor, sad that she never missed a rehearsal, sad that she skipped spring break, when some were in Europe, or on cruises, sad that she , of all the dancers, was always the one an hour early, and quite honestly, MAD that it had to happen to her. Also, I will honestly admit, lastly, I'm sad I will not get to see her dance the roles she prepared so well for. I need some encouraging words, here. Fortunately, our recital is 4 weeks away. She will be seeing an Ortho that I work with tomorrow, and hopefully start PT tomorrow as well. We'll see what happens in a few weeks. Redstorm---sorry to jump on your bandwagon, but we all gotta stick together. I'm sure MANY of you have felt our pain. It just will make it so much easier to hear it from someone else on this Board, who understands, and can send an encouraging word. Quote Link to comment
