I will take a picture of the boys tomorrow. Biscuit is quiet the chunky monkey and golden chunky monkey at that.

Horses are good for your soul...they make me smile no matter what!

You are going to ASK the doctor about going to the barn????? Doctors+ horses= don't ask, don't tell!!!!!

Glad you got to see them!! From a Native Houstonian.... be careful over there!

Greentree - my surgeon is aware that I ride horses. I won't be doing anything other than brushing Biscuit for awhile and maybe hand grazing him. He is not a spooky horse that I have to worry about jerking a lead rope out of my hand thank God! The second time I saw Dr. Murphy he wasn't to crazy about me riding and it took some convincing on my part that I would stay at a walk, I rode with an ER nurse, and that I actually felt better after riding.

I used to live in Houston myself so I am pretty familiar with it. Actually, I am going to Pasadena - just off off I-45 and Beltway 8. He has an office in downtown and Pasadena. It is easier from where I live to get to the Pasadena office. I take 146 off of Ih-10 in Baytown and go over the Fred Hartman Bridge to 225 in the LaPort are...down to Beltway 8 and then over to just past Fairmont. Easy even during busy traffic times.

Anytime you can skirt around Houston it is a GOOD thing!! I would not tell my Dr. I rode- because they would not believe for ONE minute that I would stay at a walk.....

I like that "don't ask don't tell" idea for doctors and riding. I was told over a year ago never to ride again. If I can't ride, I don't need the doctor because I won't need a healthy body if all I am going to do is sit on the couch and wait to die.

Your cakes are gorgeous! I myself live in Pasadena and would maybe be interested in getting a cake made for a friend. :) What is the average waiting time on a cake? How soon would we have to give you notice?

there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Just got back a little while ago from the Doctor. He said I am doing ok - need to walk more to get my core strength back. My legs are still freaking numb and he said that may take up to a year and there is no guarantees the numbness will go away

On the good side - the staples are GONE!!! YAY!!! I go back on July 1st and may get clearance to ride. I told the younger doctor there today that I am in this for the long haul...I want to be riding next year, the year after that and the year after that so I will do whatever it takes to make that happen.

I went out to the barn today to pay the board and talked to the owner and barn manager. It was so nice to see them!!! Missed them! The dogs all greeted me too. The barn owner offered me the use of the swimming pool to get better and I think I may take her up on that! My sister has a pool also and I am going to go get in hers when my staple holes are healed!!

Here are some pictures of my sweet boys...I fed them handsful of clover today. I think Sarge thinks he was promoted to Sargent Major while I was gone. He is being pretty bossy with Biscuit!

Sarge won't let me get closer.jpg

Kayella, it really depends on whether I am already booked with cakes. Sometimes I can take a cake on a very short notice and other times I am booked and can't take more! Just give me a holler and let me know when you need one and if I can make it happen I certainly will. I took a chocolate butter bundt cake to my doctor and his staff today. It was covered in chocolate buttercream, then covered in chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate dipped strawberries. LOL my doctor said Chocolate was at the top of the food pyramid!!! I heard the staff telling one of the others he had chocolate on the back of his lab coat! They are so sweet.
