The Road to Whitesboro

Thanks to all who have inquired as to my wellbeing after my header off Poco last Tuesday. Because it only hurt when I walked, I was too stupid to stay off last weekend, and I'm paying for that mistake. My hip is deeply bruised, and I now understand I need to give it plenty of time to heal completely. I won't even do ground work with the horses, since I don't need to walk any more than necessary. I work on a huge corporate campus, so there's a lot of walking. I'm grateful I wasn't hurt worse.

I tell people who ask why I'm limping that it's an old rodeo injury.

I cleaned all tack out of my truck, cleaned and conditioned everything, and put it all away here at home for awhile.

Here are some photos I took on the way to Heather's recently.









Hope y'all are having a good week, and don't forget to smooch your ponies.

I hope your hip feels better soon - sorry to hear you took a fall. I think I missed that post...

Love the pictures of the cactus with the flowers - very neat.

Oh man!! I missed that post too! I'm glad you are up and walking. Falling off is never ever fun, even more so when you can barely move for a week. After I fell off about 2 weeks ago, I know my arms were killing me too. Hubby needs to give you LOTS of massages :)) That worked for me. That and 1/2 a bottle of tylenol. lol Those flowers are absolutely gorgeous!

Pirty flowers. That's one thing about having to take it easy due to injury - you have more time to enjoy the flowers. I think I'm getting sympathy pains for you. My hip felt like it was swollen and aching while reading this. I felt it in my right hip. Which side were you hurt on?

I love those flower cactus pictures Leah
Hey, get some Arnica Montana, it is amazing for internal bruising, I'm sold since deeply damaging my hip a few months ago, two days of taking it I was healed, it totally beats painkillers, which simply kill the pain, no small thing, but the Arnica heals from the inside out.

Beautiful flowers.

I hope you feel better soon! It's hard when you're limited from moving around, I went stir-crazy this summer with the broken ankle.

Lots of rest and ibuprofen :)

Take care of yourself! I had a lol at your "old rodeo injury"... at least a horse story is better than my usual, "I ran into the corner of the kitchen island... or fridge....or wall...I run in to things a lot!"

It does take time to heal, unfortunately:( But before you know it, you will be back in the saddle!

Take your time to heal, Leah! Loved the flowers!

I must've missed the story about your fall. (weird because I almost always read your blog daily, maybe it happened during one of my absences??)
Hope you heal up soon, but don't push yourself too hard.

Those flowers are gorgeous, I especially like the ones after the yellow cactusy one
(heh heh I'm such a prairie girl!)

I can't believe ALL y'all missed that post! It's called "Not a Matter of If But When", with guest blogger Heather, an eye witness to my ungraceful dismount.

Sorry to hear about your spill. I've been bad about checking everyone's blogs. Hope your feeling better soon.
