Recovery Time

As I may have said this before, a few weeks ago, after my lesson, I was cooling down Dexter, and all of a sudden he spooked and I was thrown off, hit my head on the wall and knocked unconscious for a few moments. (as what I was told as I can’t completely remember what had happened.) Luckily, I was wearing my helmet and my mom was there as well as my trainer. I was taken by ambulance over to the nearest hospital. I got a full work up and was fully conscious. Nothing was broken, but I did get a head CT that did show a very small brain bleed. I was also told a had a concussion. I had to stay in the ICU overnight so they could closely watch me. Later the next day I was transferred to the regular floor and got to go home the next day. I now have to get a follow up CT and was also told I couldn’t ride for three months. Sadly, I have many symptoms of post concussion syndrome as well as getting many flare-ups of my fibromyalgia. Last weekend I was feeling well enough to head to the barn! It was such a warm day (almost 70!) and I got to groom Mocha! Some of my favorite products I used on her was my Equine Organix waterless shampoo, Ecolicious Equestrian Moisture Manic mane and tail detangler, and The Herbal Horse Shine Bright! As you can see all products I use are all natural and won’t harm your horse! Mocha also got many delicious valentines day treats from Pony Riders Club Bakery! It felt so great to be back at the barn even though I couldn’t ride! Definitely lifted my spirits up after my accident!
