Feel better soon, Liz!


(((())) I hope your recovery is quick and smooth and that the pain meds make it as painless as possible.

Trish Parnell

Liz! I was giggling at the start of your post because your word choices were excellent. Then the injuries cropped up and no more giggles. Do you have a e-reader? Can you download books to read? Sorry to hear of the breakage and bruising, sounds awful.

Almost out of books?'s SF e-books (many of them free)

Hope you feel better, Liz. I too have fallen off a horse, and it is not a good feeling. They're taller than they look but low enough to not give you time to brace yourself.

Susan Ditz

Oh Leetle Sister--horse wrecks are wretched and resulting injuries just a royal PITA--in this case literally. OUCHIE
Will be by Thurs. with food, books and whatever else you need. XO


Owwww! Oh, Liz, get well soon. Anything I can bring you?


Order the iPad or Kindle and get reading. Try 'My Life' by Keith Richards. It's very long. Sorry to hear of your 'accident'. Reminds me of a fall I took back in aught whatever off a bareback horse who tripped over a tether out in the orchards behind your Los Altos house. Mother had to come and get me in the station wagon. I think Joe led that wild pony home, or something. It hurt like h-e-double toothpicks for weeks. I feel your pain!
Take it easy and feel better soon.


Ow, ow, ow, ow!

Almost out of books? Oh, no!

Actually when I am in pain I find it difficult to keep holding a book (I fell on stairs a couple of months ago and bruised my ribs). That is when I listen to audio books, which I can check out and download from my library. You can also download books here:


Ah Liz, you have my sympathy!

I've never broken anything in an "unplanned dismount" from a horse, but I've gotten a moderate concussion and, once, my grandfather's horse (an evil chestnut inhabited by the soul of the Devil) pitched me off the saddle into a patch of prickly pear cactus.

Perhaps those episodes, plus the fact that horses were my "work truck" for chores until my 16th birthday, explain why I've never enjoyed riding. I hope you are able (once you've healed, of course) to get back in the saddle.

Just now reading the whole story and again send my repentance for now well-wishing you sooner! A fall from a horse. I'm all Texan but urban and un-horsed. I have often thought I MIGHT want to try it one day but Not soon now.

I know you are better by now and truly hope you are near-well if not completely.
