Airesmum; I know your accident was FAR from a stroll in the park. I remember your story! You get the red badge of courage and you earned it.

Ioconnor: I can't imagine how you could walk to put in a 12 hour shift of work with a broken hip?!! Hello!
I know what you mean about the "you have kids to raise, you can't go endangering yourself" thing from husbands. I get it , and I haven't even once broken a bone horseback, though I come off pretty regularly.
I think it'll settle down in time. I would think if you don't talk a lot about the accident, and even don't talk too much about the horses and let your family kind of baby you a little, they'll forget. You can't do the team penning. Forget about it and strange as it may sound, get the best out of being an invalid and your forced time grounded. Maybe take up a new hobby, like painting or knitting or ?

Oh my gosh, how scary! A broken hip, wow. I hope you heal fast.
Don't you wish sometimes that you had another hobby that interested you? Like antiquing or jogging? Lol. I know I do. Horses. Why am I in love with horses? Why can't I get into, I don't know, dog shows or something.

AiresMum--I am just sure that we could rig you up some sort of contraption so you can ride! Teasing of course! Or do I need another broken hip buddy?
Tinyliny--I know..12 hrs..well technically 7-6:45 bc I had all the fun I could stand, asked to write a report, leave a bit early and make it to the dr's office to stand in line and sit around and wait all morning. You know, I have tons of scrapbooking, bills to organize, and clothes to go through. My new hobby for a few weeks?

I know they care and love me...I love them too...most days! I just get tired of hearing it, especially from my in-laws, who are well...in-laws, and that sums it up!

I am up and going insane. All the kids are sleeping...husband is getting up at 5AM and my steroids have me wired. The pain pills combined with muscle relaxer and even melatonin didn't knock me out. I'll crash tomorrow when my kids are going wild...

Actually, I was walking around the stable today in this stupid boot and was talking to a new boarder who just bought one of the horses our BO had for sale (adorable little bay gelding I was in absolute LOVE with...if I didn't have Aires.....) and we were talking about going saddle shopping for her tomorrow because she has no clue about how a saddle should fit. She goes "After we go saddle shopping tomorrow, we should totally come back and go for a ride!" I just looked at her, then looked down at the big, ugly black boot that causes me to have a lovely rolling gait (one of the guys at work said it looks like I'm roller skating if you can't see my feet), then looked back at her and said "Yeah, I don't have a horse to ride 'cuz mine ain't broke yet."

How much longer do you have to wear it? My mom broke both ankles in March of last yr, and her left one took a long time to heal. But you just sprained yours, right? I think she wore her boot for 3-4 months. She also broke her elbow a few months ago and just wore a brace for a month. Go figure!

I know I come from a family of cluts! My husband said Sat. Night when I came home that even if I wanted to go to ER, he was scared to take me bc I have huge bruises everywhere from things I can't even recall!

Well, they thought mine was fractured originally, but I apparently have a degenerative bone spur that caused a shadow that *looked* like a fracture at a glance. The orthopedist said it's not a fracture, but wants to see me back next week (which would be three weeks from when it happened) to make sure it really isn't fractured or anything. I can walk on it sometimes without the boot and with little pain, so I'm hoping to get the boot off either next week or the week after. The orthopedist said something about four to six weeks, but I'm a fast healer and I seriously say HELL NO to wearing this boot for that long! Lol

I was supposed to wear my boot for three months after my accident.... I took it odd at about two months. I just couldn't deal with it anymore. Hopefully you can get rid of it ASAP :)

It's SOOOO annoying! I hate the way I have to shift my hips in order to walk (very uncomfortable) and all the guys making fun of me (at work and at the stable) is starting to tick me off. But anyway...enough about me and what annoys the crap out of me. Lol

A bit off topic, but I took a pain pill tonight due to some dental work that is going bad (maybe abcessing) and they never make me sleepy. Hardly puts a dent in the pain, for that matter.

If I may ask, what did they give you (both tiny and ioconnor)? I know that Percocet (or however you spell it) makes me hyper. They gave me that in the ER and my friend and I were giggling sooooooo bad over something stupid...so badly, in fact, that one of the nurses stopped by and asked if they had given my friend a dose of Percocet too.
