I just read this (a little late, I know) and I'm so sorry this happened! What a bummer! How are you doing now? As much as it sucks follow the doctors orders. The week or two you lay low now may seem like forever but it will pay off later for sure. Hang in there and take care of yourself!

New horse mom-
I'm doing better in ways and worse in some.
Right now I am in alot of pain. Turns out I twisted my spine so hard in the accident I popped alot of vertebra out of place from hips to neck. I have a vertebra out in my nck and it's out to the right that's painful and I can feel it's out if place and very inflamed. I have alot of stuff going on under my left shoulder blade causing alot of pain but it's working a bit better. My hips and lower back are the most twisted out of place. I'll get there. I'm cleared to ride in two weeks lightly as we found out I have perminate nerve damage to my back. It feels like my back is being electrocuted at all times from a dull sensation to full on I can't move or I'm crying. This is very frustrating but it could have ended so much worse. I am cleared to jump in 4 weeks depending on my pain level. My confusion is better, talking alot clearer and memmory is staying intact. The dizziness and nausea has gone for the most part. Sitting in a car for over 20 minutes is painful and makes me light headed. They can't give me any pain killers for two reasons....everything makes memsi k and I hate that feeling and with the nerve damage they want to keep a close eye on that and having a pain pill cover up just how bad I'm hurting can not help how they proceed to help me heal chiro and massage wise. Also having some laser work done to help the inflamed rock hard muscles. I'm moving Ollie to pasture board closer to home so he can have time to be a horse and I can save money while I can't ride as hard as I was. I'll be able to start him on trail riding and hill work and start up lessons agin with my old trainer who I love. It will be a slow procces but I have a fun show to look forward to in may depending on how I'm healing.

I'm right now siting here with my neck hurting, heating pad on my back and hoping I don't wake up at 330am like I did this morning ad not being able to fall back to sleep cause of the pain.

I'm very lucky I'm not worse off and my mom wasn't more hurt.

Wow. That really sucks. Sounds like the concussion is healing but now you need to deal with a messed up back. Our trainer has a really bad back and she gets weekly chiro and massage treatments and started laser treatments a couple of months ago. She said that the laser treatments are very helpful. Hopefully you will find the same. I must say that I'm really impressed that you are still doing the show in May! We are going to try to come and watch you!

When you move Ollie closer to home will you be near Bridle Trails? If so, maybe we could meet for a trail ride!

Hang in there and we are sending you our healing thoughts!!

No it's a different show, lol I'll be moving him maybe to vashon island.

Vashon Island? Have you been commuting all this time? If so, good for you! I guess it is not likely that we'll meet for trail rides in our near future but never say never! Anyway, I'm sorry this happened to you but hopefully having Ollie close to home will give you an opportunity to have some relaxing "horse therapy" while you are healing. Keep us posted on how you are doing.
