The Laurel School Show will Go on Without Me

All plans are subject to change. I will be unable to do the Laurel School Show.

I fell 2 weeks ago, landing on my knee, the one with the total knee replacement. It didn’t hurt right away, so I mostly ignored it and began preparing for the show. About 1 week ago, it began to hurt quite a lot. I also felt sort of a “twisting” sensation when I walked. I refused to go to the doctor, fearing I had damaged the implant.

At my husband’s insistence, I finally went on Monday and, good news for me, the implant was fine. I had just fractured my patella. Who is happy when they fracture their patella? Me.

I have to wear an immobilizer that extends from ankle to upper thigh. Walking is quite difficult and tiresome. Consequently, the show will have to go on without me.

Metalsmithing Poodle

This blog has morphed into an observation and reflection of life as an artist. I am a Denver based metalsmith who works in a call center by day, sells jewelry by night, and fills the rest of the waking hours practicing parkour. I am the founder of Purple Poodle Designs and I am the events coordinator for the Colorado Metalsmithing Association.
