On Saturday of Opening Meet---traditionally the last Saturday in October for my hunt---the connection between me and you through Foxhunting Life was temporarily interrupted. Instead of coming home with hounds as I had planned, I detoured to the hospital. The good news is that, despite a fractured sacrum, everything is stable, and no surgery is necessary.

I am currently in rehab and making progress. I want to thank all who have called, emailed, and posted good wishes on Facebook. My heart is warmed by your messages.

Despite the week's hiccup in FHL's editorial schedule---now mostly behind us---we expect to maintain our usual twice-monthly e-mailings of FHL WEEK. My goal is to make this temporary stutter as brief as possible---perhaps even unnoticed by most of you!

Heard of your accident. How did it happen? Who were you riding?

oh my healing prayers, we just dont bounce as well, do we?

Norm, I'm delighted to see that you are back on the grid, so to speak and that the trauma is behind you. [Sorry, I couldn't help myself] You keep healing, you're missed in the hunt field and in cyberspace. :lol:

Hi Norm,
So glad to hear you are doing well.
If you experience increasing pain some months after the injury and rehab, consider looking for a physical therapist who took myofascial release training from a Mr. John Barnes of Arizona. Some massage therapists also took training from him. His techniques produce real and measureable results, dealing with soft tissue scar damage removal. Many Drs are not aware of this kind of specialized work or its benefits.

Hope you are mending well and back in the saddle soon!
Happy Hunting!http:// www.foxhuntingl nts/com_jcommen ts/images/smile s/smile.gif

I want to thank you all for your kind words and advice. They're much appreciated. I'm home now and comfortable and zooming around the house in a chair. The pelvis is slow to mend, but all my riding friends who have had a similar injury assure me that once healed it will be forgotten. Thanks again for your support!
