Before heading to Mammoth for the big race I was getting some last minute practicing in and the track was a little to wet and slick for the speed I was going and I went down.  I knew as soon as I hit the ground that something was wrong with my arm and my parents took me to the doctor to get it checked out.  I was so devastated because I knew that I would not be able to go to the Mammoth race and I was instantly nervous about if I would be able to go to the Loretta National race that is about a month away.


The doctor confirmed that I did have a fracture in my humorous but they didn’t know how bad it was or how long it would take to heal.  My medical coverage is with Kaiser and whenever Kaiser sees a fracture or a brake they put it in a cast for 8 weeks.  I want to make sure my arm is taken care of the way it needs to be, but I don’t want it in a cast for more time than it needs to be.  If my arm heals before 8 weeks I can make it to Loretta’s.  My parents paid for me to go to an independent sports medicine doctor to find out how bad my arm is and how long it will take to heal.  My family also paid for an MRI to make sure there is no additional damage in my arm that might need to be taken care of.  I have another appointment with him in a few days to see what my outcome looks like.  Fingers crossed that my arm heals in time to go to Nationals……..I will keep you posted!
