Captain of the team

Earlier this week the Juniorette had the plaster removed from her broken arm. The X-ray was good but the doctors decided she has to wear a splint for the next 10 days. Once this is removed she can start some light swimming, but no vigorous swim training for should be attempted for a while. The doctors also said she should not play football for a couple of months. Hopefully she can start some light training with the girl's team in a few weeks, but competitive games with the boy's team that she plays for will have to wait until her arm is 100% again.

She is naturally disappointed about this, especially as she has missed the start of the football season. Her team is now in the E-Jugend, and now plays in a league rather then playing tournaments. But her spirits improved immensely when her team trainer told her that she is the captain of the team, even if she is out of the side injured for the foreseeable future. Personally I think it's a good decision for the team as she is a good defender, with a good overview of the game, and likes telling people what to do! :)

Let's hope she's back in full action asap. Having read how active she is used to being, she must be getting restless.

Wonderful that she is healing well. I bet she watched a lot of the Olympics!

I think it's great of her trainer to keeep her as captain of the team. I'm sure she'll be back on the field in no time :)

congrats on making captain. i've never heard of swimmer not being able to swim with a broken arm.. USusally they can swim with the cast and the brace.. IT's more a matter of just being very careful and taking it easy as needed.. swimming is rehab.. that's odd for a doctor to say stay out, well at least a north american doctor...

I hope juniorette will be back soon!

You haven't blogged since August???
Shame on you Mr Haddock.
Are you giving up on this blogging lark now that you're almost at the half century mark?
