My x-rays say I have a "right sacral alar fracture as manifest by disruption of the first through third neural sacral arches."
I'm not exactly clear as to what that looks like, mind you, but I sure know how it feels. And I would add to that a big, fat "Drat!!"
There is really nothing to be done about it but to rest it (meaning not get on my horse for awhile) and manage the pain. Advil, ice, and the hot tub are my best friends at the moment and I'll be calling my chiropractor tomorrow for alternative therapies.
Katie is threatening to sell Calabar (or rather give him away) to Canada or Mexico, but I won't let her. It's really only half his fault, and I'm not done improving us, yet.
We just have to take a time-out from riding for a few weeks, that's all.
Time to get a little creative, I'd say.
