My daughter has been on the competitive side of the gym for 3 years; since she was barely 5. She never really cries at practice, not even when her ankle was injured (growth plate pulled away from bone). On Monday (Labor Day) she woke up crying. She was running a little fever. On Tuesday her fever was gone but she did not feel great, but would not consider missing school. On Wednesday she seemed okay. She went to school and then to practice. 2 Â½ hours into her 3 Â½ hour practice she told me her stomach was hurting. I asked her if she could push through, she said yes. She continued through floor with no problems, and then hit conditioning. She started sobbing during conditioning (first time ever). She told her coach that her tummy was hurting. The coach said nothing so she pushed through Â½ hour of conditioning (including half leg lifts, full leg lifts, press holds, pullovers, rope climbs (2 Â½ ) in pike.) After practice she tried explained to the coach that she was recovering from being sick. Her coach told her not to come to practice if she has been sick. She went to school that day and was not contagious. She was not coughing and had a very minor stuffy nose. I did not know her stomach was bothering her until almost the end of practice. Should I have kept her home?
