Not-so-good news

Well, I had ballet today, and for some reason, my left foot kept hurting. And because it was hurting on the bone near the top, I had to role through it every time I jumped to make sure I didn't make noise when I landed.

Turns out ... I probably have a stress fracture. Won't know until after we go to the doctor. But as we have a show coming up, if I go to the doc, and I do have a fracture, he will tell me to not dance. So I have to suck it up for a couple weeks. Fingers crossed it doesn't get worse.


  1. I would get it checked out before you let it go too long. I did ballet for 13 years. (The last 5 en pointe.) Don't think that a stress fracture is something you can let go. It can get really bad if you do that. If it turns out that it is not a bad stress fracture you can stretch it and work it while in a brace (which isn't as harmful as many say). It is better to have it braced and stable than not and end up doing more damage.

  2. Oh no, I hope it isn't a fracture. Fingers and toes crossed for you.
