My poor unlucky girl injured the growth plate in her wrist and thumb at a meet Saturday. Now she is three weeks in a wrist and thumb cast, five weeks until states. Coach, Dr. (who is hand specialist for our local college team), and DD all think she will compete at states. 12 yo L. 8. She had a wrist cast when she was 8 yo for a broken finger and if I remember the wrist strength recovery was brutal. She missed most of last season with a broken foot so I hope the Dr./coach/DD are right, but I don't know... Any good comeback from cast stories or perspective anyone can share?
