Hi everyone! These past several  months have been some of the most challenging times of my life, as well as some of the most enjoyable here at Oklahoma State.

At one of our first college nationals practices, I landed short while warming up my tumbling. In college we tumble on hard floors, so the impact was much more intense. I went down with a pain I had never felt before. 

After several X-rays and a MRI, I received the news the doctor had feared the most. I had a confirmed lisfranc injury. I had torn the ligament that holds the midfoot bones in alignment and the only way to repair this injury would require several months of rehab and two surgeries.  One to insert a plate and four screws and another, three months later, to remove them.  Most lisfranc injuries require a minimum of six months recovery time. 

As a competitor, hearing this news was absolutely devastating. Of course I immediately did the math in my head and realized that I wouldn't be healed in time to compete. 

My teammates have been so supportive and amazing throughout everything. Oklahoma State is the reigning National Champion in Large Coed. There's a lot of pressure put on this team and I am learning so much from these intense practices as well as everyone's amazing work ethic. 

I plan to attend NCA All-Star Nationals in February. It will be a totally different experience for me from my previous 13 years. This year, I'll be a spectator cheering on all of the teams I've either competed with or against over the years. I'm most excited to see my Cheer Athletics family. Some of my greatest memories are competing in that arena on the main stage.   Good luck to everyone as you prepare for nationals and worlds.  Keep your chins up during the highs and lows of practices and competing. We are all so blessed to be a part of something so wonderful and should never take one moment of it for granted.
