Congratulations! Hoping your recovery continues to go well. Is there any therapeutic riding center that could help you at this stage of your recovery? Just to get you back in the saddle in a doctor-approved fashion so you could work on muscle tone and coordination, and have a lot of supervision?
Congrats! That's wonderful news...nice to hear a good story.
I also suggest to try your hand at carriage driving to spend part of your time instead of always in the saddle. It's good training for horses too!
I would love to try driving, but with the injury I have (had?), sitting in the cart would be extremely painful. I'm a bit limited with what I can do right now with the anesthetic shunt still attached, but it comes off next week and I'll get to see if my leg is really improved. If I can just sit again, it would be a huge deal.
I guess I celebrated too soon. I started having sharp pain in my side yesterday afternoon, but didn't get too concerned about it. By morning, I could barely get out of bed, and had to get my mom to drive me an hour and a half to my doctor's office. It was the longest drive ever. I was screaming anytime we hit a bump.
I was admitted to the hospital and now they are doing tests, tests, tests! I only feel a bit better now that they have me on morphine. I still can't get out of bed, and I don't have any answers.
On the plus side, my leg still works.
