Hi MissingStar, So just like TexasGal, you were very young too when you had your surgery. Thank you for your advice and encouragement. I think my worst fear is possibly falling off when I do get back to riding. I may sell one of my horses, she's a sweetheart and a TWH mare, beautiful blue roan sabino. It will hurt, but I'm not sure I can care for both of them.

I hope you get better fast. I hope you don't have to sell your horse.

Carpe Diem!

QOS, thanks for responding. Your story is something else. Glad you are feeling better now and riding. I hope to one day, maybe. I'm feeling a little dpressed about all of this surgery.
