LMAO!!!! It think you'll be ok to teach. The students will be entertained in the least.

Teach some Edgar Allen Poe, they'll never know ur on meds, and you'll understand it as you never have.
Sorry you got banged up so bad, but proud
to see you got back on and gave her the ride she needed to
be confident in your relationship.

Wanted to thank everyone for the encouragement and good advice on this post. As it turned out, the school forbad me to return to work until a doc cleared me and the doc wouldn't clear me until the drain tube was out--all the legality anymore won't even let you be a tough guy! So I sat around and listened to Willie Nelson, the theme from the Magnificent Seven, lots of Johnny Cash and read about Red Pollard to keep my spirits up. I got the tube out yesterday and have been cleared to return to teaching on Monday.

It's funny you mention Poe, Cakemom. I do, in fact, teach some of his poetry and his story "Cask Of Amontillado" in one of my courses!

Fortunately, while the ribs still hurt--it was clean breaks, not just fractures--I have been able to tool back a lot on my pain medication, and I am clear of mind again and while getting the toddler out of bed in the morning involves a "rider up" trick we invented together, I am able to do some light housework and put on a shirt and pants without screaming. The hellish back spasms at night--truly a thing of the ****ed--I would have to scream at my wife to move me, as the pain was literally paralyzing--are gone now. One thing from all this, you learn how precious "normal" is. Thanks again for all the support. I have been getting lots of it from all kinds of directions.

thank you, Sunny...didn't you have a similar accident in which you ended up in some barbed wire or something? I guess if the best jockeys in the world are going to crack up sometimes, we are all going to come away with some scars...

Oh my goodness, I am so glad that you ok, what a horrible experience to go through. It amazes me that when I read about equine related incidents and how a rider may not even know something is broken until they get back into their routine.

I agree with everyone great job for getting back on, I would have been a nervous wreck, it was really sweet reading the part when she came back to you. =)

Oh, yes. Nothing was broken, but I still have some pretty awesome scars.
