    Wow, B2H, that was a horrible fall! I've been flipped over on a horse but it was so quick I never tried to put my hand up to stop them. How scary that must have been.
    Thank you so much for all your kind words! Whenever I have a down moment, I will come read this thread. :)

    QOS, how terrible of q week! I'm glad everyone made it out okay!

    Kate, as soon as I get the okay, I'll be riding! The hard part will be not tearing up through the field! I see my surgeon in roughly three weeks and should know more then.
    QOS and Back2Horseback like this.

    I'm very glad you survived that horrific experience. I agree with others that said it's not your time to go.

    Best of luck with the months of therapy and healing. You seem plucky so you'll get through it

    You had a brush with death and that changes people. You're going to look at things differently now (for the better).

    Geez! I missed your thread somehow, WSA!

    I'm SO sorry to hear about what happened. And I'm glad you survived it and your spirit is not broken! Wish you very fast (and painless as much as it can be) recovery!

    Wow, there is absolutely NOTHING left to that car where you were sitting. You had an angel on your shoulder for that wreck. Sending healing light to you for a great recovery!

    Another little update...

    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.

    Well, I am reading up on your thread and amazed that you still have such a good spirit about this. I would be whining and complaining and milking this for all it was worth. You, pretty matter of fact and upbeat. How DO you do it?

    If you go the hip replacement, the soon the better, so that you can get right back inot healing. My dad had it done and the healing was much faster and less painful than his months of PT trying to mend the broken neck of his femur , with the pins and rods and such. If it's iffy, I'd go push for the replacement.

    I'm so glad you get to go home for Christmas!! How wonderful for you, despite things not going as good as planned, but my goodness, four whole days at home for now! Have been praying for just that.... Have a wonderful, happy and blessed Christmas! Never doubt how your friends here are continuing in their prayers and best wishes :)

    I'm sorry to hear things are not going as planned. Healing hips is a long, drawn out process. I'm very glad to hear you get a reprieve for the holidays. That will give a boost to your spirits and reinvigorate you. Best of love and light for continued healing..

    I am glad to hear that you will be home for the holiday, but sad that there is some not so good news too about the hip. Have you asked any of the doctors about the riding possibilites in your future? Or are they just focused on getting you as healthy as they can for now? There's no one staying w/you? You do have family close by, don't you? Prayers still coming your way. I hope some of th pain has subsided.
