    Major Setback number 2 :(

    Yeah, I never thought it would happen again, and on floor both times, my least favorite and lowest scoring event. So I think I am going to go back to gymnastics and not compete floor and maybe not vault either. In college, I wouldn't compete all around anyways, and this way I can spend more time...

    Major Setback number 2 :(

    So I haven't posted in a very long time as I have been super busy coming back from a torn acl in order to compete my first level 10 season. However, 3 weeks ago I fell on floor and tweaked my knee. I went to a couple doctors and they all said it was fine. I went back to my surgeon and finally...

    So its been 4 weeks and a couple days since i had surgery and everything is going well as far as i can see. I've been walking without crutches or a brace for a couple weeks now and my knee is feeling like it can hold its own and its feeling a little more normal. It doesn't hurt hardly ever and...

    Surgery

    So it will be 3 days post op tomorrow and i'm already doing really well. I'm walking without a brace or crutches and it looks pretty normal. I can bend my leg to 125 degrees and straighten it to -3 so thats really good. The PT is being really cautious with me, no bars, no handstands, not even...

    Surgery

    Thanks for all of your prayers!! The femoral block wore off around 6ish the next morning and i'm still not really in any pain. I'm down to having 1/2 of the pain meds already and i went to church this morning. I was planning on going back to school this morning, but my grandma talked my mom...

    Surgery

    So i injured my knee about 2 weeks ago on floor and i thought it was just a sprain... got back up and walked away, went and tried to compete at Westerns, and died on first event, beam. Found out 8 days ago that i might have torn my acl, got a mri two days later, got the results the next day...

    Season End Update

    Well, i just found out today that i probably tore my ACL and will be out for 6+ months... That puts a little catch in my plans towards my goal of a college scholarship. Next year is my junior year and that makes for big issues when we are talking about how this is going to happen... I could use...

    Season End Update

    Well i haven't been on here in a long, long time, and i figured it was about time for an update. So competition season went pretty well besides all of my injuries that have magically appeared :mad: but i managed to pull off a fairly successful season anyways. So i qualified for level 9 state...

    Back from Florida... Meet report! :)

    Well the coaches and i kinda decided that i would do level 9 this year, but still work my level 10 skills and put them in when they are ready to compete, but i should have a pretty good level 9 year, and then hopefully a pretty good level 10 year next year, the important year... Also, 2 of our...

    Back from Florida... Meet report! :)

    So this is my first level 9 meet (other than the mock meet) as i was out due to a sprained back from the last one. Because my back still isn't 100 percent, i' haven't done much or lots of things... Anyways, back to the story... Vault- yurchenko tuck (watered down, only practiced... 3 times)...
