but then nor would you if you had come off a bolting horse, and landed face first on the school floor! I'm not sure exactly what happened on Friday afternoon, but I do remember the pony in front of me bucking out twice, and then my horse bolting. The last memory I have, and it's only vague, is of the saddle slipping. The next thing I'm aware of is coming to lying on the ground, being talked to by two of the riding instructors, which was odd as I felt as though I was waking up in bed at home after a dream, and I don't normally have riding instructors at home! Shortly after that I remember being rolled onto a back board and being taken into an ambulance.
After x-rays of my neck, lower back and right hip, and a CT scan of my head, I ended up spending the night in hospital, as I have a huge haematoma on the back of my head, so was kept in for monitoring. My whole pelvic/sacro-illiac/hip area is agony, and watching me walk is like watching paint dry, it's so slow! Nothing is comfortable, but I am at last over the concussion - at least the world doesn't spin every time I move my head any more. Of course the other good thing is that the damage is only soft tissue - no broken bones, which considering the speed at which I must have come off is quite amazing.
So, no going to work this week - no chance of being in a fit state to drive anyway, but also under doctor's instructions to rest. Flickring is resting, isn't it?
I should have had some really good shots of all of this (my head in blocks, all sorts of hospital shots), but my camera was in my car which was left at the stables, and my husband, who was a complete rock and tower of strength in all other ways, felt taking photos with my phone was "inappropriate"!
