    HagonNag Checking in!

    I'm here...finally. Thank all of you so very very much! I am completely astounded by the prayers, good thoughts, candles, flowers and cards. I have only met a very few of you in person and I'm blown away that so much caring and love has been shown to me by my online friends! Forget that...by my online family. All those good thoughts and prayers must have worked because I'm here again! I'll try to thank everyone individually when I have more energy (and am not under the influence of drugs! LOL)

    Bill has given you a pretty good blow by blow and I don't know how much you want to be bored but right now I"m sitting in the hospital doing a bunch of nothing, so I might as well get it all typed out once...

    Jim, Bill and I were out riding Sunday morning early to beat the heat. We'd been out an hour when my horse just suddenly exploded. That's the only way I can describe it. Big has always been a handful with an attitude, but he's never done this...never been dangerous. We're walking, and I'm at teh end of the line and I feel him start to blow. We aren't talking crowhoppin, or gee I"m glad to be alive this morning...we're talking out and out serious rodeo bronco. I remember thinking, I am going to come off...and that's the last I remember until JIm told me the ambulance was on its way. I screamed, Jim looked back and I was face down, wound around a tree. Big was grazing. Yeah, really terrified horse, there...
    My eyes were rolled back in my head. Way back. Jim yelled, because Bill was way ahead and they decided Bill would call for the ambulance and try to meet them on the road. Thank goodness we were only about 50-60 yards off the road.

    Jim said I came to, and must have asked 50 times, "Did I fall off my horse?" When the EMS guys came through the woods with their backboard it spooked the horses. Jim's OTTB SHREDDED his nylon halter bridle and backed all over me. That horse is a saint. He was terrified and never stepped on me or touched me. Bill's horse, brand new, first time on the trail with bill, broke his lead and ran off a short ways. Three big burly guys with a big plastic thingee just did them in! They put me on a backboard, hauled my substantial body through the woods and loaded me up for the trip to the hospital. I was using language that would have embarassed a sailor. Being strapped to the backboard, the neck brace, the tree roots that anyone would trip over....it was not fun.

    (I'm going to post this in sections as the hospital's wifi is iffy.)

    OMG that sounds so scary Pat!!!! Thank goodness Bill and your DH Jim were with you.

    Do you think maybe Big got stung by something which caused his explosion?

    In any event, I'm happy to hear you are on the mend! Please do keep us posted on your recovery and welcome back!!

    Pat, glad to see you're among the living! Big hugs!

    Very scary, what happened to you. Horses are unpredictable even at the best of times, but to have one go off like a bottle rocket for absolutely no reason is terrifying.

    Bill said you've had constant problems with him over the years? I think it's time to get rid of him, one way or the other.
