Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, aka Stretchy Pants Day, everyone!

I know I've been MIA, but with good reason. I ended up having knee surgery for cartilage damage and a thickened plica, and have been in recovery for a few weeks. Honestly, I haven't wanted to do anything but wallow in my own self pity, but I think I've finally snapped out of it.

After my post-op appointment this week, the doctor recommended I do 4-6 weeks of physical therapy, and the PT can decide when I can go back to class. Had a PT consult, and she thinks I can go back to a modified class in about 2 weeks!

This news perked up my mood considerably, but I know I have a long road ahead of me. My range of motion is crap and I'm still having a little bit of pain, but just the fact that they said I CAN DANCE AGAIN has given me hope.

And that, mesdames et messieurs, is what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving.

What about you? What are you thankful for?
