About Jumping and Dancing

Oh how I wish I could JUMP like this right now! I would probably be safe to say that MOST of us take our health for granted. Waking up, doing what we like to do each day, truly is a GIFT! I have played tennis for years, anywhere from 3-6 times a week, and compete on several teams! I love working on my game, and being a part of a team! I have met some of the most amazing women out on the court!!!

 A few weeks ago, I fell off of a high counter top and tore my ACL, MCL, and meniscus in my knee. The first words that came out of my mouth as soon as I hit the ground were, “I HAVE TO PLAY TENNIS!!!” And all while I was in tears crying because of the PAIN! I don’t know that I’ve ever felt that kind of pain before! Excruciating!!! As I laid there, everything went through my head. Going in to the busiest and most competitive part of our tennis season….not good timing at all! Why couldn’t it have happened in the fall or winter?  It has been so hard to say the least! It really has made me appreciate my health and ability to function normally each day! But with all this being said, I realize there are so many others who are suffering much more serious ailments than just a torn up knee. And I’m grateful that it is JUST my knee. It will soon be on its way to recovery….after some surgery. Ugh!

So the moral of this blog post, is to NOT EVER TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED, not ever!!! Enjoy getting up, moving, jumping, and dancing!!! In fact you should dance today!!! It’s good for the soul! And just like I posted a couple of days ago on Instagram, a video of me dancing in this most amazing dance hall I’ve ever seen….the BLIND WHINO, you should…

  1. I will be having a second knee replacement in August, after having ankle tendon repair last summer. It depresses me to look back at photos of what I used to be doing with my water sports. But with a lot of work with good eating and work with my excellent physical therapists, I will be back on the water by summer 2018. The mind is willing, but the flesh a little slow on catching up! Still, however grateful for the blessings life has given me!

    1. Hi Jackie, thank you for your comment!!! It’s so hard to be injured when you LOVE being active! What water sports do you do? I’m so curious!! Good luck in your rehab! XO
