HagonNag's last update---almost well!
 
I've been a little swamped with work and family and haven't posted an update lately...so here's one...and it's the LAST! Yippee!!

Doctor signed off on me and told me to go and ride no more...LOLOLOL Or ... he tried to. He really knows better...but he released me and told me if I HAD to I could ride...but to please ride carefully because he really didn't know if he could put the pieces back together again next time. He showed me x-rays of my chest and scared the chit out of me...but not enough to keep me on the ground. I'm just looking for a very quiet horse.

Saw the orthopedic doc about my shoulder and my rotator cuff came through splendidly. I just have a frozen shoulder...major tendonitis. So I got a shot of a steroid in my shoulder, some exercises to do and we decide if I'll need physical therapy a month from now.

I'm back working all day... so it's all good. I'll not be posting again about this, but you may see posts about my search for a horse! Y'all TRULY were wonderful to me all through this and I'll be forever grateful. :hug:

I am SO very glad you have had a good outcome and a relatively speedy one too considering how severe your injuries were.

Glad to hear the good news! Wishing you luck on finding your new horse.

I'm glad you're recovering so well!

It was fast and I'll always be grateful to LadyTrails for her advice about the D3 and the cottage cheese. I ate cottage cheese until it was coming out my ears...I put sauerkraut on hotdogs..and I took D3 to the max...50,000 units twice a week in addition to calcium and vitamin D on a daily basis. I've had a lot of fun shocking people (and medical people too) with the speed of my recovery! I really think I owe it to a wonderful doctor, LadyTrails' advice and being generally a stubborn PITA. I really fought for this. I WILL ride.

Fantastic recovery! Hope you find the perfect horse.

That is great news! Now to find a nice quiet horse so you can keep enjoying the trails. So happy for you!

I'm glad you're doing well! Maybe think about taking that cowboy up on his offer if he has any horses that are quiet enough :).

One thing, though: I'm not a doctor, but I just want to say that rehab really helped when I sprained my ankle pretty good.

Keep healing and be careful!

HagonNag - this is great news! I'm thrilled to hear that you healed up so fast and so well! Be careful and enjoy doing what you love to do. I hope you find your next great horse very soon!
