  • ouch!

    Okay, I guess this is due to my laziness when it comes to wrapping my ankles at certain small pow wows. But, I have a broken bone in my foot from my ankle turning over when I was being lazy. Now, gals I don't want sympathy. I would like a little advice. anybody ever had something similar happen? if so, how long should I expect to hang up my shawl for? thanks ya muches!

        That happened to me once when I was 13. I stayed off my ankle for 2-3 months, but I babied it. I wrapped it any time I was on my feet longer than 1 hour. But luckly I was young and my bones healed faster, now I think I would be out for at least 5 months just to make sure that I would not make it worse.

        I also dilocated my knee about pain...ouch!!! I was not dancing fancy for 6 months, talk about bummer.....but I am dancing fancy again, but it is not the same I have to keep a brace on it EVERY time I dance. Which I don't have to, but it is just in case, cause it is easy to flare up an old injury.

        Everyone heals in their own time and only start dancing again whenyou are ready. Hope you have a speedy recovery!!!

Second time, I had to do a 2 1/2 mile parade, and I had broke it 2 days before the parade! I have All so had a twisted ankel, & still gone out & dance, I have had a fever of over 102.1 and went out and danced. I refuse to give up my dancing for anything! that has got to be the reson I can't keep a man! LOL!

                      Hey yall,

                      I came up with a really good topic. Something I'm looking at right now. What have been your tougher lessons as a jingle dancer? What are you thankful for? I don't want to have to limit it just to us... but for now it's a start.
