A nod to Terri Clark, who wrote the lyrics for the song-thanks Terri, this is how I feel at times.
Early in November my horse and I parted ways in a quiet manner but my landing was absolutely deadly.
The femur is the strongest bone in the body, and I managed to break mine in 3 places.
I share this educational graphic with you in the hopes that you might forgive my absence...the break was bad enough and the cure? Oh god.
I got my staples out yesterday and I will be starting PT in a week. In the meantime, I am enjoying floating through my days in a fog of pain pills, chocolate and ice packs.
Nick and I will be able to ride out together in early March, and maybe even before that. In the meantime, my trainer has ridden him once and will put a few more rides on him. The fall was not at all his fault as I was way out of balance due to my own yee-hawing down the long side of the arena. We were such rockstars until he stumbled and I fell onto his neck and then he bucked. Oh well.
Art is out for the time being as I cannot concentrate, sewing is too detailed right now to manage. I am reading and sleeping and doing chair exercises.
So, please don't delete me off your blog reader as I will be back. We all have lots to discuss concerning the future of our country and the state of fashion :-)
