Mind Your Melon

This past Saturday I had my usual lesson (which was great btw) on Dexter. When I was cooling off, Dexter spooked and darted and apparently I fell off and hit my head on the arena wall while doing so. I can’t really remember that part though, 911 was called and I was ambulanced to the local hospital. My body was fine, but sore and my head hurt like hell. I got a CT scan and the results showed a very tiny subdural brain bleed, plus a concussion. They admitted me overnight in the ICU and I got another CT in the morning and luckily the bleed has gotten better, but I had to stay another night (on the regular floor) due to my head pain and balance. I luckily got home early yesterday evening. Sadly, I was told I can’t ride for 3 months now and I have to go back in for another CT in three weeks. Overall I was lucky I had my helmet on and nothing worse had happened! Time to get a new helmet!
