Laura Goldman injury

I got a call from Laura Goldman on Tuesday. We talk once a week or so, usually about horses and riding. This time Laura had some bad news for me. She took a bad fall and broke her hip.

She wasn't riding a horse - she fell in her kitchen, of all things! She had surgery and will be recovering in a medical center for six weeks. Well, her doctors say six weeks but she is working hard to get out of there ahead of shedule. I visited her yesterday and despite just having surgery and doing hours of physical therapy every day she is in good spirits.

If anyone out there wants to send her a card, here is her address at the medical center -

Laura Goldman
Room 105
One David N. Myers Parkway
Beachwood, OH. 44122

I am sure she would love to hear from the equestrian community that she feels so connected to. I know some horsey cards would lift her spirits and give her some inspiration when she needs it.

I'll keep you updated on her progress. Amazingly she doesn't seem discouraged and is more determined than ever to get back in the saddle!

Thanks for this post and the email. I'm sure some horsey notes will help her get through this difficult. No one likes to be cooped up but I think we horse folks have more trouble with it than most. I can only imagine how I'd feel.

I'm not surprised at her determination; that lady's got some serious moxie (and you GO girl! :o) If anyone can beat the odds and get back in the saddle at warp speed it'll be Laura.

Thanks for the update, I sent her over a get back in the saddle soon card yesterday (thank you Shutterfly)!
