I am not sure if any of our members are aware of the accident I had on August 15th, 2009. I went for a nice calm horseback ride. Some fool spooked my horse and he threw me, then stepped down onto me, then when he removed his hoof from my elbow he fell over sideways and landed on my midsection. There are twelve broken bones, four of which are spinal fractures. I had to relearn to walk and am having a hard time of it at this point. A lawyer has been hired and we (my husband and I) will be suing the horse ranch. I had x-rays a week and a half ago to see how things are healing and found out I have arthritis in my right knee and lower spine.

I am grateful to be alive and not a parapelegic. I will have a walker and canes for quite some time to come, but at least I am here. If anyone wants to take over running the group for the time being please let me know. Otherwise you can count on at least another six or eight months before I can do any knitting at all.

Happy Christmas and New Year to each and every one of my kind and generous knitters, who gave from their heart for the love of strangers! Bless you, one and all! I hope 2010 will be a better year for all of us.
