A Lovely Ride Spoiled

Horseback riding is something I haven’t done in 35 years.  I had a chance to go last Monday on a beautiful trail in the company of friends and a beagle.  Unfortunately, soon after I got this shot the horse took off and I came off.  An emergency room visit confirmed I have no broken bones, thankfully, but still couldn’t lift my left leg.  It’s been five days and I’m getting around OK with a walker.  The hospital gave me an NSAID pain reliever prescription (dude… seriously?)  Luckily we’ve got a stash of the good stuff from a 1999 surgery that’s still potent.  Since my fall, we’ve added 11 baby chicks to the farm that I haven’t seen yet.  As soon as I’m feeling up to a trip to the barn, I’ll post a photo.  Can’t wait to see them myself!

    OH Connie!! I’m sooo sorry…;0) Your still not able to get around after 5 days? Should you…maybe?..go and see another Dr…maybe…..?. That just doesn’t sound right having to use a walker and no broken bones. Sending lots of healing thoughts your way. ;0)

    Oh no! Hope you’re not too badly off 😦 My mum rides and is forever falling off her horse. I think I might have to craft some sort of pink padded riding suits for you gals!
