Quite a contrast to my last post, where I was in full swing of performances and dancing away. But underneath the smile was my apprehension of my impending surgery and on Monday i under went arthroscopy of my right knee. I questioned whether to even mention it in my CharlieHeart posts, but the more I thought about it the more I realised that probably to some readers it would be interesting. Let's face it, two weeks ago I was more than happily bouncing around (unbeknown to me) on a torn meniscus. Of course I knew it wasn't happy, but not to the extent of already being torn..... I think it will be good for me to have a diary of my knees recovery and the steps to get back on stage as quickly and as healthily as possible!
Ballet may be a beautiful art form but at the end of the day we are athletes and we aren't invincible!
