(The nurse was kind enough to let me take a picture of the x-ray.)
This was the first time I had ever had a serious injury. Our team trainer told me that I had only jammed my fingers and to keep moving my hand. I iced it and kept moving it, my two fingers became huge and swollen so I decided to go to the hospital 2 days after it had happened. The nurse told me that they were in fact broken, I would need a cast, and that I would probably be out for the whole season. She was right I was out for the season and had the cast on for 3 weeks. I "red shirted" which means that I basically scratched off the 3 games I had played and I now have an extra season of eligibility. I continued to attend all of the games and practices to support my team. My hand healed and after the school year was done I played for a travel team called the New England Diamond Gems for the summer.
When I got back to school I was excited to play and couldn't wait for the spring. When spring came around I was ready to play. In April I was selected as the LEC rookie of the week, LEC rookie of the year, to the All-LEC First team, and to the ECAC Division 3 New England All-Star team. I broke 6 records and set 5. Needless to say I had a decent season.
When I returned to school this year I walked into the P.E. center and was greeted by a huge picture of me.
