Amy, I'm on the conservative side of the fence. Let whatever heal. Roger was't at the Sprints searching for drivers and he wouldn't be at the Glen either. The wrist is lifetime.

 

Michael, my just 14 year old grand daughter is in FL for a V-Ball tournament. She called Sunday evening for a chat, having a ball playing as usual.

Unfortunately with wrists there is some basis for the old addage that a sprain is worse than a break. A bone heals pretty well in six weeks or so and is full strength or better not long after. Other injuries in the wrist can take months to stop being tender/painful and remain more vulnerable to re-injury for years. Months after a bad one it was still excruciating to go over rumble strips.

As for ribs, been there too. There’s a lot of mingling of terminology between cracked, broken and fractured. The most painful is generally the least dramatic, where the injury is at the cartilage connecting the ribs to the sternum. No actual rib bone broken yet often referred to as a fractured rib. That’s the type, especially in the top half, that makes it almost unbearable to breath deeply let alone sneeze or cough, or even yawn. At Hallett last spring I broke and fractured 4 on the upper left. The breaks were complete and two had angular displacement. Rather than being shaped roughly like a ( they are caved in and look more like the outer path of an m. I have a high pain threshold/tolerance due to other issues but couldn’t have driven a race car or kept enough focus to stay on the track. I don’t tolerate narcotics so was only on an OTC cocktail but I don’t think I’d care to be on track with someone drugged enough to make that tolerable.

Sorry to hear Amy and I hope you get better, but this sounds kind of strange....

 

You were doing/did something wrong to get this right ??

 

If your elbows were bent.

Belts were tight.

Hands on the wheel.

How?

 

What am I missing ?

 

Just sayin,

Since the results don't show car year I'm going to stir the pot and ask what was the highest finishing NA car?

 

If you really want, you can compare the 1st post on this thread to the results.

No finishes, none entered.

The wrist report: 2nd opinion was that it is NOT broken. (not sure why this is so difficult to figure out, but I guess the bones are very small in there).  Going to the wrist specialist orthopedist today and hoping he can figure it out.  It does feel MUCH better today so fingers crossed for a sprain.  A slight chance of the Glen this weekend :)

 

That is good it may not be broken. Hopefully not too much pain crossing your fingers :)

 

I agree with Ross, screw the docs, You Go Girl!

The wrist update:  a small bone chip broken off on an apparently unimportant wrist bone.  Pain is way better today although it is still swollen like a man hand.  Doc even said I could race!  Crazy and depends on the pain level.  Going to give it a try on the test day at the glen.
