Horse I Do My Own Stunts Women's Light T-Shirt - CafePress


From the Back of My Horse

Temple, my 1st very own horse, an American Paint mare, registered from her ancestors dating back to the 1600's, to the time of my Edinburgh, Scotland ancestors, was my pride and joy, if only for a short time.

After a great fall from a bareback stand-still to a sudden trot from atop my sweet Temple, I found myself in excruciating pain and strapped to a hospital bed in the Muskogee, Oklahoma, Regional Medical Center ICU. I had been medicated to a drug-induced coma with a breathing tube, ventilator, feeding tube and even a chest tube to my collapsed right lung to keep me alive! My reality had entered a whole new realm...

"Mild linear bibasilar opacities representing atelectasis are identified and there is a small, approximate 10-20% right apical pneumothorax. Mildly displaced fractures of lateral right rib 3 as well as posterior anterior right ribs 6 and 7 and posterior right rib 8 are identified."

Now, I am awaiting the arrival of this beautiful, LeRoy-Neiman painted horse to help fill the gap left from my fall from and sale of my awesome Temple.


A great fall...

"Fell off Temple & broke 3 ribs, etc...!!!!"

It was pretty muddy out, so I had on my mud slickers & was just walkin' bareback on Temple at twilight when she decided to hop into a gallop, & I slid right off!!!! Man! What a landing! And quite a wake up call! :^(
'Spent 1 week in ICU with 4 broken ribs and a collapsed lung and another week in the hospital taking breathing treatments and letting those ribs mend. Then John and Karen, my brother and sis-in-law, took me home to see my dogs and cat and get my stuff to stay with them in Tulsa for a few more days of recovery.
I came home Sunday, July 11th, and now I'm back to work as of Monday, July 19, and so thankful to be here.
I'm disappointed to have to give up my horse, but "to everything there is a time and a season..." A lot of people were praying for me, and I thank God for each of you and for His plan for our days.



i just disconnected myself from my home internet service...too slow & too expensive. trying to figure our how to make ends meet here in the lovely green country of eastern OK. any ideas anyone? i think it's time to set up a little stand somewhere and sell paintings and drawings...probably a decent idea, actually.
