    Wow, what a tremendous accident. You're super lucky, and I'm glad to hear that recovery is going. And what good decisions about your handsome horse! :)

    Just wanted to let you know that General Hospital is on and is better than ever. Well, maybe not. But I love it and DVR it all the time!

    Pat, I have to say that your job sounds awesome! (aside from the meetings...ick) I'm admittedly a total book nerd. Good luck with training someone to handle some of the responsibility, delegation is a beautiful thing

    Keep on keepin' on and let us know how you are doing.

    Last week was an education....

    I went back to work last week...half days. The first couple days were rough. I told the director that I had identified the problem and I would be in Thur. And Fri. Afternoons. The mornings so exhausted me that I was crawling into bed when I got home, waking up when Jim came home, staying up with him for awhile and then going to bed. Then I'd wake up about 2 or 3 because I'd slept during the day!! About the time I started falling asleep, it was time to get up again...so I was going into work tired. Thursday and Friday afternoons went MUCH better... Friday, I was feeling so good, I stayed late and finished the Fall/Winter Bookmobile schedule!

    And paid for it Saturday. I felt SO good Friday...and Saturday it felt like I'd gone backward a week. I HURT. Saturday night I actually broke down and took some prescription med so that I could sleep. Today, I'm sitting around doing nothing...and feeling like a total slug.

    The next couple weeks will be really broken up between a trip to see our grandchildren (1 hr. By air or 10 by car. We're flying!) and working Labor Day weekend. I'll have Labor Day off and the Wed. Before I'll be in Dr. Appts. All day. I'm hoping that after Labor Day, I'll be back to a regular full time schedule.

    We handed off Mr. Big Stuff to his new owner on Tuesday evening. I'd written a 3-4 page book of Big's history and quirks and how I'd dealt with him, had all his medical records, his coggins, his bit and of course the halter with his name on it. "Cowboy" was really pleased with him despite the fact that he looked like a marshmallow on legs. All he's done since I got hurt is sit in a pasture and eat. LOLOL It didn't hurt that he proved accurate everything I'd said about him; A barn cat jumped on my leg and I screamed and shook him off (claws had gone right through my jeans) and my brave little trail horse didn't blink an eye or shift his weight. That was sort of impressive. And then of course when Cowboy asked him to lead off...he dug in his feet, threw up his head and refused! WHAT??? I Don't know you from Adam!!! You could just see him thinking it. So Cowboy backed him up three steps, started again and he led off like he was totally dead broke, loaded into the trailer and stood there quietly. LOL

    Cowboy looked at me...said, "He is EXACTLY what you told me he was, right down to testing me. Don't worry, I've got his number. And when you get ready to ride, give me a call. I've got a couple of deadbroke geldings and since you gave me Big, I don't have a problem giving you one of them if they will work!" WOWSER!!

    So... My world is getting back to normal. I'll let you know what the Drs. Say after my appointments on the 29th. Till then, it's all good.

    HagonNag, the time I posted before was literally the same time you did so I missed that you worked in Librarian admin. How fascinating!!! I love books!

    Glad to hear you are getting a little better. It is just going to take time. So glad that Big has a new owner that will understand him and work with him. Hopefully by the end of the year you will be back in the saddle enjoying life to its fullest.

    Great news about Mr Big Stuff & his new home, love hearing that! Even better news about your recovery and that you are feeling well enough to travel. Now I can hardly wait until Cowboy presents you with a new trail buddy!

    So glad to see this update & to hear that you are doing well. I, too, am a book-lover,have done some volunteer work in a library & even had some library science course work in college. I was offered a job at a library, but because of the commute & other problems I couldn't take it at the time, so missed that opportunity.

    I hope The Cowboy can re-hab Mr. Big-& that was great to offer you a nice gelding if that would work for you. Nice that you have a trip to look forward to & some extended-family time. A 1-hr. Ride shoudn't be too tiring, as long as you don't have to wrestle any baggage.

    Sending more healing vibes your way-Don't over-do it!

    Pfftt, slug shhmmug!…. You’re sure feeling well enough to thieve you some carrots! LOL

    I’m jealous of your job, I love libraries, books, and anything related!

    Although I wasn’t nearly as injured as you, a number or years ago I almost lost my lower right arm to an accident. Surgery put me back together, but I was amazed at the toll it took on the rest of me and how hard the body works to heal itself.

    As you have already found out… there will be days that you feel great and want to do a lot of things, but your body is still working very very hard at healing and will slam those brakes on you pretty hard.

    I know the boredom is driving you crazy… perhaps now is the time to learn that knitting or crocheting you have always wanted to do??
    *she says with a bright note to her voice*

    You do have plenty of time to make some cool stuff for Christmas and both are easy to do at lap level.

    Glad to hear things are progressing!
