After a two-week absence, Julianne Hough popped out of a piano on Tuesday night's "Dancing with the Stars" results show for a surprise performance with her brother Derek Hough.
Julianne checked in with an update on her exclusive blog at Fancast.com. The latest entry is below:
Hey Everyone, Just so you know, I’m up and back and sick of sitting on the couch. I just did my radio phoners and now I’m going to see Cody right now. I’m doing the CMAs tomorrow, so we don’t be able to practice tomorrow. We’re going to practice today for about half an hour with Len in his master class.
Even if he gets kicked off tonight, we’ll still practice. I don’t think he’ll get kicked off. Edyta is doing a great job with him. But he’s down there with Maurice. I think his charisma and humor is coming off and people are loving him. What’s great is that’s really him. I was on the floor laughing last night during his solo. I thought one of my stitches was going to pop out.
Speaking of stitches, my surgery was good. It was scary. It was supposed to take an hour but took 45 minutes longer. It was a good thing I went in because not only did I have the endometriosis things that needed to be lasered off, but I had a cyst on an ovary and scarred tissue from my appendix that had connected to my right hip. It looked like I had a small case of appendicitis at some point in my life. But everything went well and I feel great. I feel like I have more energy than I did a few weeks ago. It’s nice to feel good and healthy again.
I was a little embarrassed for the whole country to see me in bed. I was like that’s so lovely. I didn’t have any makeup on and my face was swollen…it was great. But I wasn’t going to put makeup on. That would’ve looked stupid. But my recovery went smoothly. I got so much support. Rascal Flatts sent me flowers, other people sent flowers…there were enough flowers to make me think I was at my own funeral. That’s kind of gross, but true.
My mom and Chuck took great care of me. I don’t think I could’ve gotten through it so smoothly without both of them there. I got to lay on the couch, watch movies, and play with Lexi, who seemed to know there was something wrong. She’d cuddle up around my neck and seemed to know not to go near my stomach.
As for dancing, I haven’t done anything until …well, Sunday night I got up. Sunday was the turning point. Last night I was doing some stuff and it felt great. Watch the show tonight – there’s going to be a surprise.
I’m taking a red eye tonight to get to Nashville by tomorrow morning. I’m hosting the pre-show for the CMAs tomorrow with Craig Morgan. It’s going to be a long day. I’m excited. I grew up being inspired by all these artists and now I get to interview them and sit in the audience near them.
I’m definitely planning to dance with Cody next week – if he makes it through tonight. I have some great ideas. I’m very excited to get back.
One more note to everyone on Fancast who reads my blogs and writes in. I want to thank all of you for your support and prayers. I’m doing great and it meant the world to me to hear from you.
Talk to you tomorrow! I’m glad to be back…
