I haven't posted in a while. I was trying to catch up but just haven't.
Cherie came to ride with me 5 weeks ago Tuesday. I was having trouble with m y blood pressure meds. We met at Abbie's and had lunch and then went to Tyrrell Park. When we got there I started feeling bad. I was seeing spots. Upset stomach. I sat for more than an hour til I felt better.
Cherie saddled Biscuit and held him while I mounted. I felt better. She was lunging BG and Biscuit startled and flinched hard. Next thing I new I was fall over backwards and hit the ground. Ugh. I had a huge hematoma on my right calf. I know I didn't pass out because I can remember thinking "I hope my feet come out of my stirrups".
Scrapped my left elbow and hit on my back left ribs. My head fell back after I hit the ground and bonked on the ground. I had my helmet on. I had Barry come take me home and then he dropped Biscuit off.
I went to the doctor the next day over the blood pressure. I had a tetanus shot and asked about getting injections in my knee. I went for an exray. I saw Dr. Hays the next day and started the first of 3 injections that WORKED.
I did ride with Cherie the next week for 11 miles. Kellie and I have rode twice - once behind the golf course and once all around the back. So much fun but my leg was sore.
I only had a tiny scrap on my leg that got cellutis - Dr. Hays gave me antibiotics. Had to go to a wound care specialist. He said no riding. Gaaaa. Hoping it gets better soon.
