Rehabbing

Perchance I Am A Star

Apparently, I am progressing rapidly through all the rehab challenges and may well be going home before the end of the week. *hope, hope*

My physical therapist and I have pretty much decided on some elbow crutches as my best get around option. I have the other kind of crutches at home already so I will have a choice as for some circumstances, the regular crutches do give me more security.

Other than that, I have been able to handle most of the in home tasks well. The therapists are a bit challenged by my need to figure out how to take care of the horses, so that has been fun. We've spent some time discussing and brainstorming all kinds of ways to make my little horse set up friendly to my somewhat limited abilities.  

I've gotten some cool ideas and will just need a little bit of hired muscle to implement them.

I might be home sooner than anyone expected, but we shall see.  There is a meeting this afternoon during which the doctors and therapists will discuss my future.

Stay tuned.

  3. Congrats! I figured this wouldn't keep you down for long.

    I agree that horse people are made from tougher stuff than regular people. We have to be!

  4. Good for you! I'm happy to hear that you're progressing so quickly. Taking care of the horses is a challenge that I'm sure you'll be up to once you get home. I've always said that horse people are made of stronger stuff than regular people. I mean, really, how many people have come off flying over a jump and gotten right back on or had their foot stomped by a 1200 pound horse and laughed about it while limping away. Anyway, glad you've got help figuring out how to care for the boys. One word of caution don't overdue it though.

  5. Wow!!!! This is really good news!!! You did it!!! Make sure you have the help you need at home though. The recovery is so important as I imagine it will affect the outcome greatly. Keep the big picture in mind!
