I thought I was just sore from the fall. My butt and leg started going numb yesterday and my dr's office had already taken all their walk-ins for the day. I went to work last night for 12 hrs (I'm an RN, so you think I would know better) and suffered through it. I thought it was just swelling and maybe pushing on a nerve. So off I go to my dr this morning and...Oh no.....Just my luck.....BROKEN HIP!!
I wanted to cry, and my first question I (wanted to) ask was "Can I go to a team penning comp on Saturday?"
Now I know....accidents happen....we all need to make better, safer choices...ultimately...it was my fault.
My husband and family is so mad at me! I keep hearing "You can't take care of your kids from a wheelchair and straw"
They don't understand that this is my hobby and my release from stress...and I enjoy it...maybe not the broken hip part...but I still love my girls and will be riding as soon as I can! (I have a 3yr old daughter and 18 mo. Old twin girls....I think I need a break sometimes)
I've had horses all of my 26 yrs and had my first fall at 3 yrs old. This wasn't my last I'm sure. This is MY passion!
Does anyone else have family/friends who think they are crazy and get a "preachin to" anytime a horse even steps on their pinky toe?
I feel so much better for getting that off my chest!
