Glad to hear you are getting better

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Ouch. Been there, fell off my mare in '08- torn rotator cuff, broken radial bone in wrist. Take you time, don't rush.. allow your body to heal.
Praying for a quick recovery!

OK I think, I have been out and talked to the horses and that's fine, can't do anything useful yet, because I can't hold onto anything. As to riding, I think that it will be OK, but who knows until I try.

7 1/2 weeks gone and first visit with my own doctor today, was kind of shocked when the receptionist announced me as "our survivor" and the Doc replies "Oh this is the one"

Good news everything is still healing up, bad news a couple of small issues have come up..

Seems like I damaged a nerve in my leg, peroneal nerve, causing a numb spot on my knee, forecast up to 12 months for that one to heal, but hopefully it wont be much of an issue.

I also have 'ear rocks' , some crystals in the ear canal got knocked loose in the accident and are now floating about in the wrong place, causes me to get dizzy if I move wrong, or try and lie down on my left side, of course the relatively undamaged one. He wants to wait and see on that one, a quick internet search shows some exercises you can do to try and make the rocks go to the right area of the ear, I may have to try that.

Over all I have been strongly cautioned not to do to much, especially with harvest coming up, if I don't get well now, I could still be struggling next harvest I also have to take more pain pills than I have been, seems like being tough isn't all it's cracked up to be. Oh and have to wear a wrist brace more often than I have been doing, and with the steel set to put my wrist at a better angle, seems it's not meant to be flat.

I was also told not to try and do anything with the horses for a while, I can go and hang out with them, as the Doc says, go spend time with the new guy so he knows you, but you can't risk being pulled around by anything right now.

So we hurry up and wait some more!!

Sounds like you are healing GH-and that is good, but I know that being patient is hard. There is a maneuver to help with the dizziness....my sister in law is an ENT and gave it to me for dizziness....

And I didn't even have a good excuse for being dizzy! But she says it works-I have not been dizzy since she told me about it, so have not tried it myself. SHe actually does it to her patients in the office as it apparently is easy to not wait long enough for the calcium to move.

Good lucy and continue healing!

Keep smiling, you will get better, good luck.

In the video it looks like for the rocks he rolls her over just right.

So that means you've got to Rock N Roll, right?
