First, Maks :drool
Second, I hope Melissa is okay :( I remember how torn Maks was when Misty May Treanor was injured, and he blamed himself. The injury level of celebs and pros as well as mishaps during the dances seems to be getting more common in each passing season. I have no idea how Melissa injured herself, unless she hit her head and it wasn't in a good camera angle. I went back and watched the dance, and while she was being whipped around, I have no idea what could have caused her injuries. Unless she did in fact fall backstage or something.
I was very impressed with her paso tonight. I think she definitely started coming out of her shell and got into the character better than she has with her other dances. I'd call this her breakthrough, and I'd hate to see her go out due to an injury. Whether I like a celeb/pro or not, I hate seeing anyone's season come to an end due to an injury :(
I hope Melissa is okay. I thought she did a great job last night. She is starting to come into her own and get more comfortable.
Thank God, she spoke up and got medical attention. You can't be too careful with a head or neck injury. Recall the Richardson lady who died after hitting her head, because she thought it was nothing and refused medical treament. Prayers for Melissa. She's my favorite.
Concussions shouldn't be taken lightly, even mild ones. I'm glad Melissa got to the hospital quicky. I'm sure she'll be OK, but I'm sort of hoping she doesn't come back to dance, even though she's my favorite. It's just not worth possible long-term consequences, or further injury.
:grouphug for Melissa and Maks
Melissa is such a trooper. I'll respect her decision either way.
Yes, indeed. Any head injury needs to be taken very seriously. I remember what happened to actress Natasha Richardson (daughter of Vanessa Redgrave) a couple of years ago. . .Quote:

I'm so glad that they talked about the pressing issue on why Maks didn't carry her down the steps. I knew something had to be up b/c he wouldn't just turn his back on his partner. I sure hope Melissa is okay and will continue to dance and come out of her shell
There are a lot of things that can happen when you hit your head and it's more foolish to take chances.
I'm glad Melissa is OK so far.
