DeDe Nicholai suffered a very bad injury yesterday during a jumping lesson. Her horse fell with her after catching a rail with his forelegs. He did not fall on her, but she landed on her face. She was airlifted to UAB Hospital and is in ICU with a contusion to her C3 and C4 vertebrae and is on a ventilator. We are all very shocked and concerned. DeDe has ridden jumpers in our area for probably 30 years, although she now lives in Tupelo. She came over to school with a trainer here. Please say a prayer for DeDe to regain feeling and mobility and be able to breathe on her own.
Thanks!

She had an arteriogram yesterday to see if she is ok for surgery to fuse her cervical vertebra and stabilize her neck so it can heal. There is a torn ligament (I think that's right) in her chest which is why she is on the ventilator. The fall off the horse did not look so bad, she slipped off his neck and was awake, but couldn't feel her legs, so they had a helicopter come and get her. She is awake now also. I am very hopeful since there is nothing severed or fractured in her neck -- thanks for the prayers and jingles -- surgery should be today -- keep it up for DeDe!
Thanks,
PennyG

DeDe's neck was x-rayed and everything is correctly aligned, so there will be no surgery. I feel sure they have a neck brace or some sort of device keeping it all very still. Even better, when her hand was squeezed this morning and asked if she could feel it -- she nodded "YES"!! Thanks -- it's working!

I think there is nothing worse than having something like this happen to you or to someone you like & respect.

More jingles for all concerned, and TKR - remember to take some of them for yourself!
