Chiilaa...ours are ID as well :) Thanks for the reassurance that "this too shall pass"

Well....Good news!

I saw an ortho doc yesterday and he says NO BROKEN HIP :)
Only nerve damage and if I do my PT and feel better, I can ride in about 2 weeks!

I am so excited and relieved! Going back to work next week, so I'm taking the rest of this week and part of next week easy.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift-that's why it's called the present.

congrats on the good news re: your hip!

Co-workers are the worst for me..... I'm in my 40's and had someone say "Aren't you a little old for this now?"......... Awkward silence.....

I hated the boot, had a 4 yr. old trip, fall and roll over my foot and ankle, crush injury but I did ride, just walked around the neighborhood w/ it!!

Sad thing is, my hubby is mostly supportive of riding but has had 2 horses fall w/ or on him in his 5 yrs riding, poor guy! What are the odds? 3 wks ago, a new mare we got to be a trail horse for him put him in the hospital for 2 days, severe concussion-not wearing a helmet..... she was anxious to get going at the beginning of a ride, started scooting backwards, tripped on her heels, sat down and her body kept going backwards over onto him...... sigh.........

Hope you feel better really soon!

That's awesome that it's not actually broken. I'm sure that is a huge relief.

Danastark....that's awful about your husband. Hope he is recovering well!

Smrobs...I am so relieved. I can't wait to get back in the saddle! I have had to promise everyone that I will be more careful, especially since I have 3 little ones to watch out for as well!

I am getting one of those saddle cross charms, totally blinged out, but still!
