Broken backs and beers

Still here, chugging along with broken back recovery 2018. It’s about as fun as it seems.

X-ray as of 5/15

The good news is the fracture has stabilized, meaning no more brace and all things holding steady, I should be cleared to ride and assume my regular life at my next appointment in June.

Halle-freaking-lujah, cause I’m officially going stir crazy. I moved into my new place last weekend, officially cutting my barn commute from an hour to 20 minutes (do you hear angels singing those are angels singing).

I think I’m officially changing “step on a crack, break your mother’s back” to “pick shitty distances and break your back idiot.” Catchy, right?

I leave you with “trying to drink a beer and pose with a JRT/Corgi” because it accurately sums up my life right now.

  1. I was wondering how you were doing. Love the beer and dog photo. got your priorities straight there.

    I am glad you are all moved and glad your back is healing. June will be here before you know it!! YAY (Well for you not for me cause that means i have to be ready to move then) HA!

    I DO hear angels singing πŸ™‚

  2. Yay for a good update!! It’s a relief hearing things are progressing well, tho yea I have zero doubt that the forced inactivity is driving you bonkers. Hang in there!!!

  3. I’m so glad you’re healing on schedule! I mean, ahead of schedule would be BETTER, but on is good too. I can’t imagine how stir crazy you must be. I’ve been out of the tack for only two weeks and I’m starting to go a little nutty.
