We made it ok and I am praying for you to make it out ok too! Hope that hip starts healing itself. I know you have a tough row to hoe, but keep positive and I will keep praying for you.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas. Jesus is keeping you around for a reason and I hope all of His blessings are upon you this season. Hugs to you and yours.

Well, I had my check up appointment with my surgeon today.
Atm is healed (healed crooked and I have a bump but... that's ok) and I'm out of that gnarly smelling cast! Finally!!
There was progress with my hip fracture. Still can't walk completely on it but I can begin to bear some weight with crutches, or my awful granny walker (so long, sucker!!).
He did reinforce the "Don't push it, it's a nasty break" a few times.
For excerise - water activites and biking.
Me: Horses?
Him: *Insert the 'Don't be an idiot look'* No.
Least six more weeks.

But... At least it is an improvement.

That is all good news except the no riding horses, of course! Take it easy, build yourself back up and then ride like the wind.

I am having health issues myself and have been busted down to a freaking walk on Biscuit. I hate that but at least I can ride (and no one but my cousin Kellie saw me to a tiny bit of trotting yesterday ) I go to my neurosurgeon Wednesday - I hope for a good report!

Well, that is encouraging news-healing is progresssing, you're home & have exercises to do to make you stronger. Work w/the doc's plans, & hope for improvement & strength. We're praying for you & want to hear that you are back in the saddle at some point. It's hard, but please, be patient. The year is young.

hope you are healing better. My hubby just showed me this post. I had a fx hip before and they placed a zickle screw in it, well the screw came out, so I was on crutches almost a year. It really sucks, and I am off balance when i ride. That is hard to recover from.

I know what you mean about the granny walker, I had to use one when I broke my ankle almost 2 years ago. Good luck with your recovery!!

Being horseless is the pits!!

I would almost pay to see you ride a bike...but then you might rebreak your hip.

I could probably ride a bike safer then you could use my walker.

I've always been an IMpatient person. Now I'm home alone for a bit and I wonder... will they notice of I go for a quick ride?!
But... I'd rather wait another six weeks (fingers crossed that is the END of it) then have to get a hip replacement and go through another surgery and another four months of waiting.
Just sucks, is all! So I'm looking for things to occupy my mind... LOL

I should have stole the little horse I bought for my nephew a few years ago. Sat on it and pretended I was riding!
You, you'll have to go to a mall that has one of those horses that move around for kids - that's as fast as you get to go!
I'll be crossing my fingers for a good report for you, too!
