|LVBK's Match Schedule and Results|
This winter, we had many illnesses and injuries, and the New Year has been no exception. One of our outside hitters, Lisa, had gotten the flu towards the beginning of December, which turned into double pneumonia and then resulted in her popping on of her ribs out of place and a loss of about 7 kilograms (roughly 15 pounds). She has been on medication and seriously limited by her doctor and is just now able to begin walking and light stationary bike riding. Our Polish middle, Asia, has really injured her knee, and was unable to fix a doctor’s appointment before winter break. She is back in Poland and hopefully is getting her knee looked at; however, we have been informed that she will most likely not be ready to play again until the end of January, pending on the doctor’s findings. Another outside, Malin, who is “always cold” - refer to the Borås Cup Tournament blog for that whole ridiculous story - has managed to have almost 4 colds this winter. This last one has hit especially hard, and she was prescribed penicillin and informed to not practice until she was feeling better. A day after getting checked out by her doctor, this same doctor was fired/quit and Malin was told that this prescription was incorrect for her ailment. Now we are hoping she can train by this weekend, but not expecting her to be back full force until next week. As some players miss trainings, others are required to step up and take over their responsibilities and have done so to the best of their abilities. Many players have been playing new positions, which will hopefully prove to be beneficial as those missing from the team come back and add more depth to our positions.
This month has a lot of promise for LVBK to come out with some W’s. I hope everyone at home can keep their fingers crossed (or “hold your thumbs” as they say in Sweden) and send all the good vibes our way.
