Tried to post in the parent forum but was not able to, I apologize... My DD is an 8 year old level 4. Struggled somewhat to learn the bar skills but has been doing a decent bar routine for a couple of months now. A couple of weeks ago she got some sort of stomach virus and ended up losing 10 pounds after being sick for a week. My guess is a lot of water loss but she looks so thin now I can only imagine she lost some muscle too. She is back at practice but after not doing a bar routine for a couple of weeks can only manage a kip every one out of ten times or so, let along the whole routine. Can't tumble well anymore either. I'm hoping she is going to get her skills back after she regains a little strength. Just not sure how long that will take. Has anyone had experience with kids losing skills after being out sick? And what is the best way to handle it? Her coaches are great, working her back in slowly and not pushing her too hard. I'm just being a worried mom since she is supposed to compete very soon.
