Hey everyone thanks for the well wishes and positive thoughts and to not blame myself. That part is hard since I know it is her 1st real year riding.
Now we add concussion to the list as well. Which I was unaware of. She must have been really flying.
All throughout this year in our little time learning park I have always drilled starting small and progressing safely and hitting features correctly and safely. Today she did have good speed the 1st time we hit this feature and she got nice little (safe in my mind and controlled) air. Which is what this feature is meant for, it is in the progression (beginner) park.
Lack of experience in all aspects, I think she just misjudged her speed.
She is kinda down, I'm sure combination of pain and mixed emotions. I think and hope and from all I can tell, we had a great season riding together and I always rode where she wanted to. Worst part is it was her pushing to go to the park today. I said lets take it easy as it was snowing and visibility was good but not the best.
No cast yet, the break is so high they can't immobilize it with a cast so sling for now. Orthopedic at the end of the week to make sure its lining up properly otherwise surgery and pins. Crossing my fingers the later is not the case.
Again thanks everyone I will miss my riding partner !!!!!
