Think i made a mistake with my devils hand coral. Advice please

I've had it in my tank for 10 months and it was beautiful. I adjusted flow for my whole tank and it has been stressed for a couple weeks but still looked glorious. There was a small piece of of it "about a inch" holding it in front of pretty strong flow. I slowly released the 1"portion from the rock yesterday and now it looks horrible, folded over and blue. Whats the chance it will recover?

I feel horrible for doing it to it now

Leather corals can/will go into "slumps" for days or more and be just fine..
Happens ALL the time with them.. They can shed layers of skin to keep clean of algae to tear to create new pieces to just shrinking for a bit then coming right back out..

I'm sure it will be just fine..
Give it time..
