  1. Hey all

    Just wanted to do a pop in, let everyone know I still do breathe lmao and am actually walking ok now (let's credit physiotherapy three days a week for that) Gerry seems to be doing quite well, I miss all of you here, but don't seem to be able to find my muse lately. Donna, that be my valentine siggy is just hilarious...and kinda scary too lmao!!! I'm so very heart-broken over Heath Ledger, to think he was three years younger than I and now he's gone, so tragic...and 10 things I hate about you is a film I really like. So how is everyone? What's new etc?

    Abs, you out there somewhere, Zany??? how 'bout you?



  2. Evening,

    Fran and Peggy, I'm truly sorry to hear of your loss. I apologize for not saying so earlier, I confess to only half reading most times...Mousie, thank you...I am missing my horses so much I can't put it in words!! I am putting all my energy into positive thinking, and trying not to think about the fact that its gonna be around another month at least before I start walking...wonder if I'll remember how?? *snort*

    Well, if te lawsuit comes through quickly enough, maybe Sandy-man and I will join y'all in Vegas!!



    PS Lish, what is your sellers name??

  3. Good morning all

    Thanks for all the support, I too am glad the achilles tendon is gonna be fine, although from what I'm hearing, the skin grafting is unpleasant, the donor site is rumoured to hurt like the dickens...and they have to take it from my upper thigh, which will leave a discoloured area...which will require a tattoo to cover it up lmao...

    Irish, yes my address is still the same, I don't know for sure if I will have to be readmitted or have the graft as an outpatient (pleading for outpatient)...



  4. Hey again all,

    Muchos gracias for the well wishes...need lots lmao...home again today, it certainly helps my outlook...boring at the hospital..and let's not discuss the food. really not in a ton of pain, which is the only positive thing I can come up with.

    Susan, you are right, and I have already retained one of the best personal injury firms in this city for my case. As for damages, the only thing I have to remind you of is there is a much lower limit on pain and suffering damages awarded here in canada. As for the manufacturer themselves being responsible, I think this was more a case of improper maintenance on the part of the golf course, it's all about the governor, which is what controls acceleration on the carts in the first place. This case could take quite a while, and will hopefully result in a settlement without ever going to court. I will keep everyone apprised, and hopefully have surgery by Wednesday. Anybody here had a skin graft? I haven't the faintest clue what it's like.



  5. Hey everybody,

    I just wanted to drop in, I know I was reporting on my injury and then disappeared, I'm actually just home right now on day passes for the long weekend (it's Thanksgiving here)...I have been hospitalized since last friday and will not be getting out until my surgery, which will be sometime next week. A large hematoma in my leg killed some of my flesh, and I am currently sporting a lovely hole...there is going to be some removal of "stuff" and then a skin graft, also a quick look at some tendons, although they seem to have shrunk more than been actually damaged...

    I am trying to catch up on alot of stuff, so I will update more over the weekend...


  6. Crapppp...I replied once...stoopid laptop

    Ok, um...oh yeah, the moron was the Doctor in the ER, he's certainly not my personal physician, MY Dr is the one who has already changed my antibiotics once to try and kick this sucker...it's not as painful now, just dis-gust-ing....I got to ride in an ambliance...hehe

    Irish, I'm familiar with most race tracks in north america..except the super wee ones...although we rarely get Golden Gate on our Horseplayer channel, I am able to wager on racing there online lol...we often refer to horses as "california fast" 'cause a substantial number of the sprinters out there are super quick...maybe it's the air!!

    Mel, how did the interview go? Risa, if you're out there somewhere...I know your pain...big hugs girlie


  7. Hey all,

    Swannie, I honestly can't say whether there will be physio, for all I know, I could need surgery...by the way it feels, and the fact that I can't bend my ankle in a couple directions, there's a good chance tendons and ligaments might be damaged...first we have to kill this nasty infection...I imagine there's is therapy in my future though I gotta admit, when the injury occured, I asked the Doctor who took care of me whether I could go on antibiotics right then to be proactive against infection (because my leg had popped open down to the adipose tissue, and he said it wasn't a big worry MORON)

    ...Iliessa thanks for the well wishes, I need all that I can get.



  8. Morning all,

    I slept in obviously lol!! How is everyone? Jenn, Beachie, Susan and Mel, thanks for the wishes/prayers I'm needing them. I'm sorry to hear about Big Mike having fought off an infection...hopefully I don't have to be hospitalized for this one, it's all up to these new antibiotics. And Risa? What happened to her? When? that really sucks!!

    Mel, good luck on the job interview, as for the rain dance...I'm sorry but I can't oblige, I can do a rain HOP if you like?


    Dawn :bonk:

  9. Golden Gate huh, I've never been there, just Woodbine, Keeneland and Fairgrounds, but I love wagering on Golden Gate, the longshots always come in for me there...and yeah...word is my horses miss me too, I try and hobble into the barn on my crutches once a week and visit with my girls (all my horses are fillies now, my big guy fractured a back ankle and he's gone home, that happened a week before I got hurt...lol

  10. Hi again

    Irish, I normally work at the racetrack, spend a substantial amount of time working with, kneeling beside thoroughbreds..and don't get hurt...

    Then, I go golfing, go to turn the golf cart in reverse, and for those who don't know...golf carts have something installed in them called a governor, which prevents them from going quickly...it's like using first gear in an automatic on a super steep hill...weeeeelllllllll, this golf cart didn't have one, spun in a circle and my left leg from ankle to mid calf, was kinda sorta crushed between my cart and another that was parked behind me. The cart spun out so fast I was almost thrown out, and had to time to react, except to hold on...and well...now I can't walk, my leg had burst open in one spot and I'm currently on my second batch of antibiotics, the keflex wasn't working (oh, I have a nasty infection in my leg now too, turns out no broken bones doesn't mean crap, 'cause crush injuries are worse) so now it's Clindamycin...so please, let's hope it works..'cause this is getting really crappy.

    I've never had something happen to me before that actually prevented me from walking at all, having to spend 90% of my time with my leg elevated is boring as all get out, and sometimes I'm finding myself very depressed...Sorry, didn't mean to whine, it's difficult to go from being so active to not being able to freakin' take care of myself, we don't know when I will walk again, what sort of damage there is inside my leg, 'cause there's still too much inflamation to tell...I miss my horses, and having someone else taking care of them sucks big time...

    Ok I digress, I just worry too much...


  11. Hey Gals, hi to everyone those I know and the many that I don't. I'm at home alot more now, so I'm coming back on here to see what's up...I'm, well...laid up on the couch for an unknown amount of time...for those of you who know me, the laughable part is, I didn't get hurt at work...

    Yeah, that's right...I work with highly strung, occasionally dangerous animals, and yet manage to get hurt...lmao on the GOLF COURSE...it's a long, sordid tale really.

    So what's new, how is everyone? What am I missing?

    Do tell


  12. Hello again

    Mousie, Hi back, it is nice to be around.

    Jill :wave: it's soooo cool to see (figuratively) you again...and for the record, I am of the opinion that Abs Vanilla mod status is merely an elaborate facade!!

    As for Vegas 2008, I can't say I wouldn't LOVE to do it, but we need to A. win the lottery or B. I dunno lol, but I know I don't want to leave Sandy behind again...I KNOW he would adore Vegas and it just wouldn't be fair, and considering we work for the same trainer, I dunno about both of us getting the time off!!

    Nancy, SO SWEET...we will return, hopefully for you to find David and me to find Ben!!



  13. Hello again

    See, I'm here again...wow amazing huh!!! Nancy, Abs, Susan and others, thank you so much for the welcome (back) it's nice to feel like I was missed :tissues: and I have certainly missed far too much about HRH lately... :pant: Well, I'm sure I will catch up as time goes on, worked ridiculously long hours once again today, just gonna have dinner...it's 8pm lol...

    So tell me more, did everybody go to chippendales, or did anyone venture back to the THUNDERFROMDOWNUNDER and yes, that MUST be capitalized!!



  14. Hey all

    This is the first time I've been back to check since I posted, which was on the LAST floor, so I read what was said after that, and will admit I haven't read anything on this floor...this is irrefutable proof of just how far out of the loop I really am...

    I hate feeling this disconnected, I miss Gals very much and I would have given anything to have attended the convention, Abrock, Nancy, Fergs, Dayna, Pam, Song...I missed you all, and I am almost positive I saw a pic of Fergs, am I wrong?

    Abrock, thanks for noticing me on the last floor, I wish soooo much I'd been there, I don't even know what went ON...gah

    I hope everyone had a wonderful time, and maybe Dr Em...ahem ahem, you could have bi-annual conventions, and hold the winter one in New Orleans????

    It looks like I might be getting a trip to New Jersey in the next month or so, with one of my horses, or Virginia if I can persuade the boss!!

    I am going to try so hard to be around more, looks like there's alot of people for me to get to know!!



  15. Hey Gals

    I totally forgot about the convention being on right now, and trust me, as much as I'm not around anymore, I wish I was there with you, I'm reminiscing right now about last year. Please, everybody don't think I don't love you or Gerry anymore, I just don't have any spare time these days. Besides, even if I had been able to get the time off, I've only been home for a month and a bit, I'm catching up on bills (and sleep). And, one of my horses is racing tomorrow in a stake, so I wouldn't have been able to get away regardless.

    I hope everyone is having an absolutely spectacular time!!! Abs, wish I was there to see you chick!!



  16. Drive by...

    TY, totally...wish we'd known then, there's supposed to be some nice courses in Vegas...I'm hoping to get in a round in Kentucky, that is if the weather is ok..

    I will be relocating to Lexington on Monday for another month or so before finally returning home, hope I can remember where my house is...I keep hoping to get out to see the film, but with the migraines, the back and my supreme hatred of movie theatres, I just don't know...

    Anywho. ttyl


  17. See...me making an effort here hee hee

    Ok, quick thoughts

    TW, awesome about the golf, I played the best round of my life two weeks ago, made me feel like NOT giving up lol I actually beat Sandy on three of the last nine holes (he's been golfing since he was six, and he's 46 haha)...

    Mousie, great to see you too!!

    Suz, HAPPY BIRTHDAY...great talking to you!! why can't you live closer to Kentucky!!

    Was gonna FINALLY go see 300 today, but my back has been in spasm...picture this...

    A chestnut filly, a twelve by twelve stall with a five foot around hole in the middle, three feet deep, with the psychotic red headed filly walking "daintily" around the outside of the hole!! Fixing the hole killed my back...seriously considering killing the filly!!...Just kidding she's too talented.

    LOL ttyl
