Update on my health:
Spring has officially arrived in the Pacific Northwest we hit 60 degrees yesterday and oh my how this makes me feel better. The surgically inserted (3 long stainless steel screws) in my pelvis do not like cold! I’m officially back to Physical therapy two days a week working with our third physical therapist. I am very grateful to my physiatrist as she is the team leader of my rehabilitation. This new physical therapist has advanced certification in neurological rehabilitation, a gait physical therapist. “I see lot’s of stroke victims.” Tears... The screws in my pelvis along with the eight deformed ribs have left me with a physical disability one I would not wish on my worst enemy. I continue to pray for GOD to take all this pain away. Physical Therapy is never easy but I can say if your doctor recommends physical therapy do your home work and find the most educated therapist for the area you need rehabilitation. Never give up!
2013 is the year my husband and me celebrated our twentieth year living together and our thirteenth year being legally married. Nothing tests a marriage or any relationship like trauma and I am happy to report our marriage is stronger due to this trauma. I love my husband so very much he is my best friend! My body turns fifty-three and reacts like I am 90, I still have a way to go on rehabilitation. We live our life grateful always thanking GOD in Jesus Christ precious name for all of our blessings as things could have been way worse for us.
My horse Miss Lily turns eight, Rio our Mammoth Donkey turns seven and Rocket Man our mini donkey is a stout nineteen years old. We continue to pray one day I can trail ride again but for now we are grateful to have been able to keep our little hobby farm. All the animals are a bit to fat again so it’s diet time for all of them including the doggies and one kitty the other kitty has a high metabolism. The photo above is our rescue kitty Jasmine she just has the fat gene going on and her most favorite thing to do is eat and lay around.

Photo of me riding my horse Miss Lily, Feb 2010 weeks before the semi truck accident working with Rio our mammoth donkey. Oh how I miss having my health! I have not been able to ride since 2010 nor has anyone rode my horse but that’s ok.
People ask me all the time, Does Your Horse Need To Be Ridden?
No she does not, she is just fine being a horse. As you know I study Parelli and she is consistently being schooled on the ground with manners and rules for balance and boundaries.
I suffer from numbness in my ankles, feet and horrific rib pain and back pain with spasms, I can tell you the hips are directly connected to the knees and feet lot’s of nerves running down the leg. The damp/cold causes the stainless steel screws in my pelvis to make my hips ache and back ache and yet I know GOD has me here for a reason. GOD has me in the palm of his hand.
Sadly motor vehicle accidents are extremely difficult to navigate here are some tips on what to do after a car accident. Surviving a motor vehicle accident involving a semi truck can be deadly, injuries are more intense. Take a look at Accidents involving semi trucks.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR A CAR ACCIDENT VICTIM:
If you are riding as a passenger in a motor vehicle and you survive serious injuries you will need to find an experienced insurance attorney, who works in the town your accident was in do not pause. If you have no health insurance it will be very difficult to get the medical attention you need as most car insurance corporations will not pay the bills until the legal matter is settled this can take three to six years. Insurance agencies are in the business to make money, NOT TO DO THE MORALE RIGHT thing for their client or the passenger never forget this.
If you think going to trial will be easy think again…. Insurance agencies have created laws that will not authorize you the victim to tell the jury how much insurance the driver of the vehicle who hurt you has. This is all the game insurance corporations play to ensure the victim of the car accident does not receive a fair settlement and the insurance corporation will not have to pay full policy limits. The cost of hiring an attorney is huge, the cost of not hiring an attorney is even more. Insurance corporations have an open check book for legal lawyers from Washington DC to the State and town you were injured in.
Please share your thoughts, questions and spread the news I have shared with your family and friends. Knowledge is power and knowledge is light move out of the dark into the light and I pray you will ask Jesus Christ to hold your hand as you begin your journey into the light. GOD in Jesus Christ name is the only way to navigate this thing called life!
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
