    I was just starting to really get into poling and joined this wonderful site and my business (pole parties) was going well…and BAM! I fell down the stairs and broke my left leg’s fibula.

    I went in for surgery last Monday. I have a plate and several screws holding my fibula together. Tomorrow I see the doctor to be fitted for a cast. I am SO sad. I don’t know when I’ll be able to swing around the pole yet since every time I get up my foot gets very swollen and purple (blood pooling I suppose?).

    It was funny, in the hospital I made sure I told everyone about my poling and my business. I didn’t get any strange looks or closed-minded people. They all thought it was very cool!

    I’m looking forward to dancing again and hope I don’t have to wait too many months to get back into routine.

    Meanwhile…can anyone offer me tips on what types of arm exercises (sitting down) I can do to keep up my strength (besides using crutches ha ha).
