The Ice Princess Broke her Heel!!!!

I'm sick over this! My son and daughter-in-law didn't want to worry me, so they kept the fact that my granddaughter broke her heel during off-ice practice. I only found our last night when I asked when tickets would go on sale for her Off Broadway performance. My son told me that she may or may not be in the show. She will see her doctor on Friday, and my son will call me over the weekend. I know how much she was looking forward to being on stage. She was given her first script ever, and was to have three speaking, dancing, singing, and costume changes with some of the children who already perform in shows on Broadway. By the way, her figure skating coaches are beside themselves. So are we.

Oh no I am so sorry to read this. It is heartbreaking! I know she was looking forward to it as well as all of you were. I do hope that she has a speedy and complete recovery from her injury. So sad.

@DianneN That wasn't a good thing to do. You deserved to know when it happened. They should never have hid it from you.

@Happy2BeMe I agree, but they know how much I worry. Still, no reason to keep it from us.

@Corbin5 That seems to be the case. It's amazing that after the wedding of my younger son, I was informed of something he had told my husband 10 years ago, and my husband was told not to tell me for that very reason. My husband certainly can keep a secret if you want to tell him anything.

Oh no! I'm so sorry - that must really be uncomfortable and throw a wrench into her plans for performing/skating. One good thing, if there is a good thing - it seems like sometimes kids heal faster.... so I will wish her a speedy recovery

How terrible. I will put in a prayer for her and hope that she heals fast and that everything will be OK. Have to admit it is one of the dangers of ice skating - breaking something. Hope she is up and out on the ice soon. How did she break her heel? I bone in it? I was just thinking about heel and wondered.

I certainly hope they don't let her perform in this show. She is young and will have plenty of opportunity in the future but right now she need to take good care of her foot. Trying to use it can easily cause more and permanent damage. It will already come back to haunt her when she is old enough to be arthritic. I speak from experience.

You are right. I just read about that online. I just pray she doesn't need surgery. I don't know if it's a hairline fracture or a bad break, but will be awaiting my son's phone call. Did you break your heel or ankle?

So sorry to hear this. I know everyone is disappointed. I hope that the experience does not have a negative effect and that she does not give up skating. My little cousin was into gymnastics and broke her ankle twice. After that, she gave up the gymnastic dreams.

Thank you. She may be very disappointed if she can not be in the show, but I can't see her giving up figure skating for this. So sorry about your cousin. Ankle injuries are very painful, too.

@DianneN I am glad to hear that she is dedicated. I am not sure how dedicated my cousin was but I think she had weak ankles, to begin with.

@Shellyann36 My granddaughter has been competing since she was 3 years old and is 9 now. She loves figure skating and has been so dedicated. She was chosen to represent the state of New York in Michigan last summer and has been invited to Regionals. Next would be Sectionals, Nationals, and then Olympics.

It is very sad and devastated we are, but I'll wait for more information this weekend after her doctor visit. I heard broken heels happen to athletes, falling from ladders, and car accidents. I really shouldn't look at the internet. I hope she doesn't need surgery.
