    Default Woody is on to his next patient

    If you have a moment, please check out my tribute to this very special horse and his extremely generous owner, Diane Wade.

    The Woodys of the world are priceless.

    What a lovely story. I sure hope he can work his magic on his newest patient.

    Sloop Woody Wade is a legend around here. Yay Mizzwade, for sharing him.

    I read part of the article, but found this phrase, about the severity of the author's head injuries, "Neither was bad enough to leave me drooling.", as lacking consideration for people who have actually severe TBIs and have had to live in a difficult, debilitated aftermath.

    The phrase just isn't nice, especially in an article that was replete with expressions of religiousness.

    It does surprise me what the editors of COTH allow to be published.

    Cyber, anything and everything written or said can be twisted and turned into an insult about something or someone if you want it to be, if that is what you are looking for. Get over it. That is not offensive, it is just a fact. It sounds like the OP actually had a pretty TBI if she lost a full day.

    I'm so jealous! I have always loved Woody Wade.
    He is famous around here!

    She is lucky to have him. I would kill for a horse like that.

    You just want to be offended.

    She has written about her fear that it's what would happen with her next injury - she already had memory loss and was worried the next one would affect ability to function and turn her into an adult infant for whom others had to care.



    Thanks, Jody - the article made me cry!

    Ditto. What I wouldn't give for a spin on Woody! I bet I'd get over my Scareds, too... well, more like Scared/Unconfident. I'd so love to try riding a push button, made, confidence-builder. I just know it would do me a world of good!

    Special horses like Woody are without a doubt the result of care and understanding by very special people like you. Thank you for sharing his special story it really touched my heart.
