Well the Good News Is...

Word coming in is that a lot of our swimmers hit PRs in this meet. Though bummed not to be there (even being up walking around for very long is still quite painful for me at this time, so cheerleading from the deck was unfortunately out), I'm happy that they all did so well. I'm lucky to get the opportunity to coach such a fun and hardworking bunch of swimmers!

The rest of the good news is that I saw the orthopedist yesterday and it looks like a clean break. Though it's right on the end of the bone adjoining the elbow, he says no pins or surgery needed, no tendon or joint damage. Although the 6 weeks off will be a b*tch, I should be good as new when it's all healed.

Sorry to hear about the injury. It really sucks. I am just getting over my ACL sprain now that slowed me down at the end of last season. A girl that is in our club who is a very good athlete as well was running last week and stepped on the edge of the pathway and seriously damaged her foot. she will be on crutches for 6 weeks. so we know what you are going through and know how frustrating it can be.

take care of yourself so that you can get back into it as soon as possible. keep us updated on how its going
