I got up, got back on the horse for a few minutes and then headed to Emerg . BECAUSE MY HAND AND ELBOW REALLY HURT and my wrist was at a funky angle .
Unfortunately I also had a really large swelling and a hoof print on my thigh(wore shorts to the hosp because pant kinda hurt) SO as much as I argued that I was concerned about my arm, the doc was petty focused on my leg.Eventually convinced them that I was hardly likely to have walked in , far less have gotten back on the horse with a broken femur !
So they agreed to X ray the wrist , nothing broken but as it turns out later the impact of my jaw on my ulna caused enough trauma that I now have a bone cyst there .Found that out a while back. My elbow has also been giving me trouble for some time , and when I told my new doctor about all of this she sent me for more x rays , as she was concerned there may have been a break that was missed.
The good news is , dropping my entire body weight at speed on my elbow didn't break anything (as the title says ,GOOD BONES )
The bad news is I have severe arthritis in that joint . So I went in today to have a cortisone injection to relieve some off the inflammation and pain. Hurts like a sonovabuck! to get it done , but once the freezing was on board it felt pretty good. A little sore tonight , but I should see results if I am going to in the next few days .

So other than work and doctors appts in has been a quiet week, hopefully will have a new interesting post soon.
Meanwhile , stay warm, and stay safe
