OMG how awful.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
Get well soon, please....
NJL (...just reading about it hurts.......)
Poor thing, sound very painful.
Oh, dear. Poor Courtney.
I hope youth will be on her side and that she'll bounce back quickly. I was really looking forward to seeing her progress this season.
"I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence
We should wait for confirmation, but if alhrayth is correct about the break being below the knee, it is not her thigh bone, it's the tibia (shin bone). As I just posted in the Ladies thread, I broke my tibia (near the ankle) skating 2 years ago, so I know how Courtney must feel right now. Hopefully, she won't need surgery and will heal according to schedule. I was off the ice for 6 months, perhaps Courtney could go back a little sooner.
Sending lots of healing vibes to Courtney!
Ouch! She is young and hopefully will heal quickly!
Wishing her a speedy and full recovery.
Whatever the injury, I hope she takes time for it to heal completely before getting back on the ice.
I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

Oh, no! We just saw her a week ago @ Mike's show. Hope she takes the time to heal completely from this.
Major . I hate to say it, but I thought she was pushing way too hard this season with quads, combinations ending in triple loop, and really tricky footwork in and out of jumps. It was very exciting to watch but I wonder if it was too much all at once.
Best wishes for a quick and full recovery.
Really tough if she's injured like that away from home. I hope one of her parents was at the competition with her, though I'm sure the team leader and other team adults are very supportive.
Poor Kid. It will seem like the end of the world for her at the moment.
Went through a similar injury with one of my kids, took 7 months to get back on the ice, it's a long haul.
Hopefully she has good strong support to help her get well and fit as she is an amazing young lady to watch!
A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer
I cannot imagine the pain.
Poor thing. I hope she has a speedy and complete recovery.
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
"I guess I'm just...I'm not used to someone putting me first." -Emma, Once Upon a Time, episode 2x3, Lady of the Lake
Wow. I imagine we'll hear something somewhat official in the next week or so if she is out for the season or not. I wish her a complete recovery.
Regardless, can you imagine flying home so soon with such an injury? That's a really long set of flights back home to CA, with no real opportunity for comfort all of those hours.
I've seen many people on crutches, in hard casts, soft casts, walking casts, in wheel chairs, etc. fly... but is it even advised/permitted to fly within just a couple of days of a serious bone fracture (assuming that's the actual injury)?
