Elbow09 Update 1

Elbow 09On Saturday, February 21, 2009, Holly rode her horse for a little while and then was on the ground walking him to the gate. At the gate, she was ready to let the horse go when something distracted him. He stepped on Holly's foot and without realizing it, he knocked into her. That essentially tripped her and she fell right on her elbow.

She called me (this is the second time I've gotten such a call -- shoulder) and told me she fell. She wasn't very specific but sounded out of it. I could tell from her tone that she new it wasn't as bad as when she broke her shoulder. So, I hopped in the car and raced to pick her up. Then, I raced to the hospital. On the way, she told me what happened and that she knew she broke her elbow. The hospital was actually kind of a pleasant experience. We were there for ~1 hour. Pretty good for an ER visit for a non-life-threatening visit.
