dd is abroad and had an injury during her routine - i am not there
could watch a live link - and saw it happen - didnt look that bad on internet!
she is currently in hospital having x rays
fingers crossed not too bad
she is 'older' and thought this would probably be her last year - and hoped to go out on a high.
she actually had the highest execution score of the group in this comp which should make her feel some good stuff! so so sad for her . wish i was there!
think its possibly break in her foot apparently according to coach. had phone contact. medic on site said prob not break. coach took her to hospital to see.
waiting for update!

I don't even know you, but my heart hurts to think of her alone and hurting and far away. So sorry! Hope she's better and home with you soon.

My heart goes out to you as a mom: I can't imagine being so far away from my baby when she's hurt (no matter how big she is!) I pray she is ok, and its not as bad as they think!

Hope she is okay. Cannot have been easy for you to be so far away from her when she is dealing with medical issues. Let us know the diagnosis. though I am hoping it's all just a precaution.

So - update . Sorry not to post.
Turns out it was torn ligaments. Fat ankle, mega bruises, and told it could actually take longer to heal than a break!
She is actually more positive than i thought!
Out for a while. But glad to have her back!

I had been wondering how she was. OUCH on that update. I have hear the same thing about those kinds of injuries taking longer than breaks to heal. Glad she has a positive outlook, that will help.

It was mad and crazy. She had been the MOST fit and ready she had EVER been. Gutting really !
The coach with them said to her beforehand - if you score all your difficulty you can have cake with your dinner. She was so excited about this. Lol. I think they let her have it any way.

Bugger is one word. Makes me laugh your English vocab! What age did you leave? Were your girls born in UK or Canada?

My three kids were all born here in Quebec. I have son who is rarely mentioned. He is 21. I left the UK in 1990 and I was early 20s, so quite a while ago. I am headed back to Manchester later on in the year and I am realising that things have changed massively.

I was from North Manchester. Prestwich, ask your dad about the mental hospital. But I was born in the Ordsall slums, we moved out as they were tearing street after street of houses down in the late 60's. I have been looking on google earth at the changes, some parts I recognise, but other bits leave me feeling quite disoriented. It will be a very interesting blast from the past.
