Jewel’s tendonitis has the singer totally bummed. She blogged late last week that she’s turned to steroids to get through the pain:
“I guess I really over did it on the rehearsal front! My knees have been hurting so badly that I finally broke down and talked to [boyfriend Ty’s [Murray’s] knee doctor yesterday. He said I have tendonitis in my knees and that I have to start a course of medicine to try and bring the swelling down. Yuck! It’s mainly my left knee, and I can’t believe I hurt it so badly… Ty warned me I was over doing it, and now he got a big ol’ ‘I told you so’ in.”
[The blog continues]
“The worst part is that I can’t rehearse for the next couple days. It was just so fun to dance 8 hours a day- especially considering I only had 3 weeks to cram not only for my first dance- cha cha, but to learn the fundamentals of about 6 other dances that I will have to know. But now I’m just worried I won’t even be able to dance! Hopefully these steroids will really do the trick and I can keep bad flare ups at a bay in the future.”
Here’s hoping she’s 100-percent by show time next week!
