One-Armed Bandit

Friday was surgery #3 on my left arm, leftover from my July 2013 horse accident. Not a major procedure like the first two but being one-armed for two months has its own challenges.  For example, with one arm you cannot....

tie a shoe
open a can OR a bottle of wine
put on your undergarments, but it improves with practice
floss your teeth
put shampoo on other than a pump bottle right on to your scalp
put on contact lenses (this also improves with practice)
slice anything
open anything but the foot works wonders for closing doors
wear pants you can't pull on and off
wear most of the clothes in my closet (a trip to Goodwill fixed that)

There are lots of others.  The horses were moved to a farm two miles down the road for a few months as riding is certainly out of the question as is taking care of them.  They are in good hands.

I feel just like this baby squirrel but this should be the final hurdle in this long road to recovery.  Stay safe and remember, stay out of the way of a bucking 17 hand horse, always.


  1. LOL yes, stay out of the way of that horse!
    Been there, and foolish enough to do it, luckily walked away unscathed.
    When I think of the things I did when I was younger... OY!

  2. Glad you are on the mend!
