Darn, I had episode #2 all typed out, went to post it and it disappeared!!!
Back to the drawing board!

I'm so grateful that I was riding with JIm and Bill, if I had been alone, it would have been curtains for the Hag. The official toll:

Right Side: Completely collapsed lung, 5 ribs broken, some ribs flailed under my collar bone (shattered, not attached. It sounds like cellophane when I breathe or move and you can see me breathe in my neck and collar bone) Right kidney lacerated. Right shoulder bruised (they were amazed it wasn't broken or dislocated.)
Left Side: Partially collapsed lung, pneumothorax, 1 rib broken.
Front: cracked sternum facial bruising
Back: C1 and C2 (cervical spines) are cracked. I'm darn lucky. Transverse process on one of my spines is broken off (near my shoulder?)
Inside: Adrenal gland is bruised.

You can see that Big didn't just casually toss me off. He MEANT IT. Nobody bruises an adrenal gland...it's way too far inside you.

Posting now before I have to type this again. Just reading it give me chills.

Outcome: Not sure about me yet...I'll live, but there may be some breathing consequences. They have a chest tube in, and I'm on oxygen, but we're having trouble keeping my lungs inflated. Hopefully, it's just early days.

For Big? Well Big is 15 and he's always been opinionated and a PITA. But I've felt safe on him. He never did anything dangerous. He was totally brave and his spook was a stop. S.T.O.P. We've been in swarms of yellow jackets riding War Woman in GA. And all he did was run full out till he was soaked and standing in the sun. He ignores snakes, deer, turkeys, llamas and cows. He's crowhopped. Heck, he used to buck when frustrated. He stopped that. He stopped biting. He stopped running down hill at speed. He stopped moving while being saddled. He stands like a rock for mounting and dismounting He's definitely been trainable and I've enjoyed molding him. BUT: He's 15, he has squamous cell carcinoma of the penis and he has an attitude. We've been treating the cancer...freezing it off whenever it appeared, but this year it just exploded the entire length...and the decision was made to keep him comfortable, watch and put him down when it begain bothering him. SO...If can find someone who wants a lawn ornament with a full medical disclosure, along with an honest appraisal of his character, then he might live a little longer. This is not a horse for a child or a newbe. If someone like that doesn't show up in a month or two, then Big's cancer will become terminal. Quickly.

I love this horse, but he will be dying sooner or later from the cancer, this way will just be a year or two sooner. We don't know what it's doing inside. Heck, it could be the cause of this if he was in pain and we didn't know it, or it spread to his brain. Either way, he won't hurt, nor will he hurt anyone else. I hope he finds a home, but I'm not counting on it.

Hi Pat,

I hope you have a speedy recovery, must be feeling better I see you are on the Internet already

Bill will have to introduce us next time I am in SC, maybe we can all go to the Jockey Lot and spend some money sometime, I like that place.

We had a horse with the same problem and place as Red, he was 5 at the time, the vet gave him some shots with some kind of chemotherapy drugs and then we had to more shots ourselves for about 6 weeks, he is 8 now and doing fine, although there is some tell tell sings of enlarged tissue around the are, but he has no problems peeing or anything and he is cancer free.
Has anything like that been tried on Red?

Take care and get well soon
