Bethany update

I took Bethany to the orthopedic Dr this morning, she got a bright orange cast! (Halloween).
The coaches who made the girls run(I knew this, just forgot to mention it in the last post) were the teen coaches... And they made them run the extra lap because some were talking! When the adult coach found out what had happened she told the teen coaches that they are NEVER to do that again! Her coach called me this morning to see how Bethany was, I told her and then mentioned that the coaches should not have done that, that if they really want them to run that extra lapthey really should wait till the following night when it is still light out! She agreed and said it would never happen again.
Bethany's friends mom called me this morning after my entry to see how Bethany was and to tell me what really happened.
BUT here she first tripped over a sewer pipe sticking out of the ground and went airborne , J said the girls said it looked like she was doing all sorts of flips and cart wheels, that, that would explain the scraps and scratches and bumps and bruises on her knees, head and elbows and ribs! The she fell into the drain ditch not off of a curb.
Bethany is OK now, some pain! BUT she wants to go back tonight, She wants to be with the girls and see what she can do! I called the mom coach and she said that was fine that she could try , BUT if she can't then she doesn't have to.
Her Dr said she can still cheer BUT the competition would be out since she is a spotter. She can still go to competitions and hang out though!
I may go to practice tonight!
The head coach of all the squads is suppose to call me to fill out a accident report she has yet to do so! I may see her tonight then!

Oh no! Is this what I have to look foward to? (I have an 8 and 6 year old in cheer.)

Glad that she will be able to go to practices and hand out for the competitions. That is better than sitting at home :o)

I hope Bethany gets all her friends to sign her cast! Hope her arm heals quickly.

I'm so glad it wasn't any worse than it was. I hope she heals quickly and gets to (at least) cheer her girls on.
Hugs, Joyce

Poor thing! I'm so glad she's doing better. (When I was a kid, I had a purple cast. Colored casts are the best.)

Poor Bethany! I remember when my oldest son played football and during the first game of the season my son was injured on the field. I jumped up immediately but, was told to sit down by other parents who assured me it wasn't bad. One mom was holding me back ... I KNEW (gut feeling) he would need me. Sure enough, luckily he only had a fractured ankle and his back injury was just bruising.

Anyway, It's good she can go to the practices still - that helped my son a lot.

Wishing her the very best!

I'm so sorry that Bethany got hurt and glad that it's mainly her wrist. Hope it heals quickly and she is in little pain.
