Saturday night my MOM went to the little girls dance was are the pictures....

Macey in the kitchen showing us what she can do.

The girls waiting to go on the stage, in front of one of the chapel windows.


This year we decided we would sit up in the big balcony because their momma had to run up on down several flights of stairs each time they would need their costumes changes. 

Their dance recital is held at Iowa Wesleyan Collage in Mt. Pleasant Iowa.  It is held in a very large, and beautiful chapel with a huge stage perfect for dancing.

The girls did just wonderful and you would never realize Macey did not have her shoes on when she was doing her tap routines. It was great.

UNTIL we decided to that I would leave a few minutes before the show was over, and just wait outside on mom and the girls.  All I can say was it was very dark where we were sitting and I remember taking two steps down and looking over at the EXIT door where it was well lite, and then the next thing I knew I was falling and it seemed like forever, and landed on the door jam with both my knees.  Well, of course that caused a big embarrassing commotion and people are around me, telling me they were a nurse etc. etc.....finally I was able to stand up and get to the elevator and Kylei helped me to the car and went back to get the girls.

Long ER story short, no broken bones, just messed up muscles and ligaments.  Today is my first day back to work, without pain med. so it will be a long legs are all wrapped up like a mummy and tomorrow I start physical theory.....No steps etc.....I

I will not be on the blog for the rest of the week, as I am playing catch up at work.  I will be checking in on yours though......hugs deb


  1. The girls look beautiful but those knees....OUCH! It looks awfully painful. I'm so sorry you took this tumble. I guess the bright side is that nothing was broken but it probably still hurts just as much. Hope things get better soon and the healing is quick.


  2. Oh no, I'm so sorry! That sounds awful and very painful. Hope you can get some rest and take it easy at work. Xoxo

  3. BRAVO for Macey and her sister, they are wonderful dancers, I love the costumes and I wish I could see them once on the stage. I'm so sorry that you had this bad accident, it looks so painful I could cry... I hope the meds help to cover the pains and the pt helps and it is not painful...what's going on with this 2015... so much challenges and sad things... hugs to you ....

  4. Oh dear....OUCH! You poor thing. It is so wonderful to see Macey in her dance costume. So glad she got to participate.

  5. OMD! That must hurt terrible! When mom told you about her fall she had a thingie just like you have on the right knee and it went to the bone. We hope yours did not go that deep. Those soft tissue injuries can be harder to heal than broken bones. So we will send you our POTP that PT (you know that means pain and torture) can help you right away! We are sooooo sorry!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  6. Oh no! That looks awful. It was so nice of you to join Macey in the Swollen Legs Club, though. Do you have a secret handshake?

  7. Oh dear! Hope you feel better soon.

    And we're so glad Macey is dancing!

  8. OUCH!! So sorry about your fall, thank goodness no broken bones. We will pray for fast healing. The sisters look beautiful - we are sure the dancing was a joy to watch! Bravo for Macey and her beautiful smile!

  11. Bless your heart, I couldn't help but giggle just a little not because I'm sadistic but for thinking, what else could life serve you. Sending POTP for a speedy recovery.

    Aroo to you,

  12. Oh that is horrible, why oh why did that have to happen. You and your family need to catch a break and have only good things happen.
    That dark cloud over you needs to just move on! I Pray you mend fast.

  20. Yikes Deb,
    That hurts me just to look at! Sometimes those non-broken-bone hurts are worse than broken. I know - I had a huge cabinet land on my food messing up muscles and tissue but not ligaments, bones (and only a few nerves). It was a long convalescence and one the doctor said would have been cut in half if it was a bone break instead.

  21. Oh yuk....Mom has lots of sympathy for you after her big face plant.....

    The Mad Scots

  22. You really did a job on your knees......ouch! Hope you're back in action very soon.

  24. What wonderful pictures of the very pretty!!

    So sorry about those legs, Deb...hang in there, stay off them and get better quick!

  25. OMD! That is the kind of thing I would do. You have so much on your plate, you did not need this. I hope you are feeling better soon!

  26. Ow Ow Ow Ow. I do hope it heals quickly. People still ask me how I tore the miniscus so bad in my knee it needed surgery? Skiing? Snowboarding? "No, I say - I busted a move walking Barkley on ice!"

    Get well soon and thank you for the beautiful pictures of the girls in their dance costumes. That brings back many happy memories of similar days growing up.

  27. Owwwieeee!!!! That looks so painful! Hope you heal up quickly!

    The girls looks so cute in their dance costumes!
