2011 has thrown up more challenges than I really wanted and it hasn't finished yet.
Last Saturday, 3 of us headed off for a normal farm ride. Without going into too many details, I got into trouble very quickly on the unpredictable Chief and this time it ended badly.
My memory is sketchy at best of events but it involved an ambulance ride to hospital.
I have multiple rib fractures, a collarbone broken in 2 places, bruised and collapsed lung and bruises that are amazing, especially as I don't normally bruise very much.
There was some concern over my left hand but it is just heavily bruised.
So after 8 days in hospital, taking in some heavy duty drugs, I have been home for a few days now and am starting to feel a wee bit more comfortable.
Chief was gone by the time I got home, to the one person I would trust with him. I truly believe he is grass effected but know that he will not trust me again and I will never be sure of him either.
So stay safe everyone, enjoy the holiday break and roll on 2012 aye
