    Thanks Girl! I have been tempted to go ride the fake ones but I think my butt is too big for those!

    I have sat home a bunch lately because my walking is so unstable. I look like a dang drunken sailor. I am planning on riding Saturday and Sunday if the weather is ok - it will be terrific if I get the ok to trot!!

    It is at 3:40 PM in Houston. I will be leaving in about 45 minutes. Got to put my war paint on and iron a shirt. Hubby will be home shortly. Trying to gear up for water works if he says it is MS. I never cry in front of people...heck, my kids never see me cry but if he tells me it is MS I will be hard put to put on the old British Stiff Upper Lip....I come from a long line of BSUL people.

    Just got back from my appointment - it isn't MS so I didn't have a waterworks going out of control. It is Sensorimotor polyneuropathy so the neurosurgeon is sending me to a neurologist to determine the reason for it. I did get the OK to ride as I please as it is not damage to the spine. Woo HOOOOOO.......Biscuit and I will trot as long as I can stay balanced. I still walk like a drunken sailor but I am not drunk...just crooked!

    Glad to hear it wasn't the MS you were dreading. Hope there is something that can be done for what you have been diagnosed with. Happy that you got the OK to ride.

    Only if it won't hurt you in the long run!!! Dang, you don't want to get to be an old beat up chick like me. Wait (it is HARD) and heal so that when you get back on you are 100%.

    In a few weeks maybe you can get on and just walk...or go out and hug them up. I did my horses feet today - OMG I was so wobbly later this afternoon I nearly fell over. Bending over so long to do all 4 of his hooves really kicked my butt!!

    I had my appointment with my surgeon... Just didn't go as 100% planned. They didn't see the progress they wanted too in my hip break. I guess because I broke it right at the neck, the blood supply is severly cut off, hindering healing. If there is little to no improvement in three months, we are looking at a complete hip replacement.
    The femur breaks are fusing, however are forming a ball of bone that is pushing up into my thigh muscle. Depending on how far it interferes with movement, it may need to be operated to have it shaved down so it is not in the way.
    My arm... Well, that is looking better and hopefully have this cast off by the end of January.

    I'm kind off all over the place emotionally right now. Do I sell everyone? Keep just a few? My work and re-training is stressing me out. At least we got most of the house stuff completed.
    I did get released for four days for Christmas, and after that we see how it goes, whether I get locked up again or can stay home. The biggest issue is being here by myself, in case I fall.

    Anyhow, I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays, and keeping warm. Everyone here is frosty with out -30 weather.
    ...and the feeling all over the place emotionally is a long roller coaster that takes a long time to go away after such severe injury. You will get there, you need to take it one step at a time, just one day at a time and think of where you could have ended up-dead-or wheelchair bound or something even worse.
    You will get back into the saddle, and you will be able to feel so great that you'll forget you went thru what you went thru until you look back the photos you have. The mind is amazing in protecting you, and with time you feel better and better.

    Words of wisdom: DO EXACTLY WHAT THE DOCTORS TELL YOU TO DO. If they say you need to take some time off out of the saddle YOU GOT TO FOLLOW IT. Severe injuries are easy to screw up, and if you do screw it up-you will regret it for the rest of your life. A year off or two is nothing when you know you can be back to normal.

    Ill pm you my cell. If you need some advise, vent or words of wisdom text me-I've been thru this more than once.

    Love you girl, hope you're able to stay behaved

    Thanks, Kelly!
    I'm already sort of misbehaving (just walking more then I should be..) but I'm not telling anyone with a PhD that. :o
    I go in on Monday for more x-rays, and I'm crossing my fingers that he tells me I can officially get rid of my crutches and start walking normal, at least!
    You know I'm going to throw in the riding question, but I probably will get a big ole' no.

    I'm half excited, half dreading this visit.

    Sorry I have just found and went through all the threads in this part of the forum.
    You were in deed very lucky in deed to survive that one.
    And thank you for your updates as well and I am over the moon about your recovery it is slow and that that amount of dammage takes a lot of time to repair its self.
    Im glad your on the mend and all the good work that the hospital has done to fix you is awesome and the one thing I must add well sorry for nagging don't try to run before you can walk.
    The most other awesome thing is all your frends in the horseforum giveing you lots of support and and sending there love and wishing you a speedy recovery.
    All I ask is take your time youll know your limits and get well soon and youll soon reach your goal and be back in the saddle.
    I have had my elbo shattard back in 1989 and I needed money and I worked in a frends sand baging plant my frend said I was nuts but I had vet bills that was lifting 50 kg bags of sand I just come out of plaster.
    The testerment is I work on the rail road and I can do any job as good with my bad arm as any other man with no injerys its still pinned and wired although I have broken one of my wire ties as it pops the skin up.
    I admit the cold weather and the damp gives it a dull ake but I don't think about that at all I just carry on.
    We wish you all the best and send you all our love from michael nancy tricky and quincy.
    One last thing ill say darn it if I knew I could have air mailed you a christmass dinner.
    We will be thinking about you and our thoughts will be with you to.
