HagonNag's last update---almost well!

I've been a little swamped with work and family and haven't posted an update lately...so here's one...and it's the LAST! Yippee!!

Doctor signed off on me and told me to go and ride no more...LOLOLOL Or ... he tried to. He really knows better...but he released me and told me if I HAD to I could ride...but to please ride carefully because he really didn't know if he could put the pieces back together again next time. He showed me x-rays of my chest and scared the chit out of me...but not enough to keep me on the ground. I'm just looking for a very quiet horse.

Saw the orthopedic doc about my shoulder and my rotator cuff came through splendidly. I just have a frozen shoulder...major tendonitis. So I got a shot of a steroid in my shoulder, some exercises to do and we decide if I'll need physical therapy a month from now.

I'm back working all day... so it's all good. I'll not be posting again about this, but you may see posts about my search for a horse! Y'all TRULY were wonderful to me all through this and I'll be forever grateful.

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.

I am SO very glad you have had a good outcome and a relatively speedy one too considering how severe your injuries were.

It was fast and I'll always be grateful to LadyTrails for her advice about the D3 and the cottage cheese. I ate cottage cheese until it was coming out my ears...I put sauerkraut on hotdogs..and I took D3 to the max...50,000 units twice a week in addition to calcium and vitamin D on a daily basis. I've had a lot of fun shocking people (and medical people too) with the speed of my recovery! I really think I owe it to a wonderful doctor, LadyTrails' advice and being generally a stubborn PITA. I really fought for this. I WILL ride.

I'm glad you're doing well! Maybe think about taking that cowboy up on his offer if he has any horses that are quiet enough :).

One thing, though: I'm not a doctor, but I just want to say that rehab really helped when I sprained my ankle pretty good.

Keep healing and be careful!
