    Hey, I read a post from yesterday in the killer horse thread that you said you were getting more range of motion back. Hopefully that's good news, but I did have a friend who tangled with a ditch witch ditch digger thing, that kicked back into his shoulder, and for a few days he could barely lift his arm, then after that he started getting range of motion back, though it still was a bit sore to lift the arm all the way up, and after about a year, and another accident with the same arm, it was determined that the first accident tore a tendon in the back of his arm, and as that one hadn't healed, he managed to tear another smaller tendon in the front of his arm. Initially they thought that he tore his rotator cuff, though once in the OR they found out that it was two lesser tendons. Not to worry you, but I would definitely ask once the swellings gone down a bit, to have an MRI done to see what type of damage the tendons and muscles may have happened. Hopefully its just a lot of bad bruising, but better safe then months of unresolved problems. I hope that you heal quickly, and that its nothing more serious than a bruise. Keep us updated.

    Ow ow ow! That sounds terrible.

    I got stepped on by a mare at the barn while I was trying to get her out of her stall. I had my winter boots on, but she stepped on my foot. When I smacked her to back up off, she switched her weight even more onto my foot. I had a huge bruise all over the top of my right foot and I couldn't walk right after she did it. That was probably..2 or 3 weeks ago and it's still terribly sore and bruised. I'm glad I had my snowboots on rather than my thin riding boots or she would have broken my foot.

    Well I had my follow up scan this morning, nothing wrong with my shoulder except for some fairly hefty bruising! Thank goodness.

    Bruising is very pretty according to one of the nurses!

    Reeco is being a saint at the moment, took him to a show yesterday where he got 2 1sts and 2 2nds! Not sure whatI'm going to do with him. Will persivere for now I think but I wont be trusting him any time soon.

    Faye, how did I miss this thread?!?! I am so terribly sorry! I am glad to hear that the xrays show that you are clean, except for bruising! And after all was said and done, you still kicked arse!
