A quick trip to the clinic yesterday confirmed Connor's shoulder injury as tendonitis.  The remedy?  Ice, ibuprofin and plenty of rest.  2 to 3 weeks, as per the doctor's suggestion.

Which sucks, since Regionals is in 2 weeks.

Connor's so disappointed - he was really looking forward to Regionals.  However, after talking to his coach tonight, he feels a bit better... In his experience, the coach says that most injuries clear up in a week or so.  We don't want him to re-injure himself so we will just have to play it by ear!  His coach said that they see it often in the younger swimmers who compete in the butterfly races - they tend to use their arms more than their legs.  He will assess Connor once he's back in the pool, to prevent further injury.

Keep your fingers crossed for him!
