Fellow Contestants Send Tweets to Alex

Last week, Ballet Dancer Alex Wong was injured as he was rehearsing for his Top 8 week Bollywood piece. He sustained a lacerated Achilles tendon and had surgery today to repair the damage. Good news – all went well according to Alex’s tweet: “I literally just got off the surgery table! Still a bit loopy! Im told all went well though!”

Many of Alex’s SYTYCD pals wished him well on Twitter:

Jeanine Mason: “My heart is with Alex Wong. He is not just incredible, he is a blessing to dance. I know this will be a quick and healthy recovery!”

Alexie Agdeppa: “I <3 Alex Wong @alexdwong – not only and incredible dancer but an amazing person!” Neil Haskell: “Pray for Alex. He has a tough few months ahead of him. He’s a strong kid though. I can’t wait to see him dance again.” Courtney Galiano: “Good Luck @alexdwong with your surgery tomorrow!” Allison Holker: “Good luck! Love ya RT @alexdwong: My surgery is tomorrow morning!! Excited to start the healing process!” We wish Alex a speedy recovery. Check back here for more updates on Alex’s recovery. Did Allison say this wrong or is just me that she is having surgery today on her possible rib injury?

Keeping vigil for Alex’s surgery

Alex’s surgery is due to happen today. I’m sure he’ll be in all of our thoughts, for those of us who love him and all of us who love dance and know how important a surgery like this is for a dancer’s career. If you hear anything about how his surgery goes, please post the info here so everybody can keep up with how he’s doing. Fingers crossed.

[4:39 p.m. Update: Our commenter Julia just let us know that Alex updated his Twitter. Check it out:

I literally just got off the surgery table! Still a bit loopy! 😀 Im told all went well though! 😀 about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say – we’re really glad you’re through the surgery alright, Alex!!]
