Broken

I suppose it was inevitable.  After more than three decades in the saddle, I've finally suffered my first big horse related injury.  Rev and I went down together earlier today.  He walked away sound, but I broke my collarbone.  I'm meeting with an orthopedic surgeon Monday.  The ER doc thinks I'll need surgery as the bone is not aligned properly.
As you can imagine, I'm in a lot of pain.  Am typing this one handed, which is ok (thankfully, all the damage is on the left side) but don't expect  much in the way of long posts for the next little bit!
