Re: [RC] Michel Bloch & Death Valley Encounter - Michael Rothwell

ABSOLUTELY! and if the treating facility will not do the CT scan go
somewhere else.

I am so glad that everyone came out of this situation OK!  I do have a
question though - when you lose consciousness, shouldn't you be checked
medically for a head injury?  This happened at Cat Spring - a woman got
dumped and lost consciousness and then declined to go to the hospital (I
made sure all my friends know - no matter what I say - get me a CAT scan,
period).

I was under the assumption that you should always get checked after
something like that (in case you have a closed head injury that can make
you
not wake up the next morning).

Well, at Death Valley Encounter, Day#1, we took a pretty bad fall - and
perhaps I'm also writing this for anybody that still isn't convinced
about
wearing a helmet.  It was a beautiful day, and Steph Teeter, Catfish,
and
myself were sharing the lead but trotting easily at about 8mph at about
mile
40.  From what Catfish whitnessed, my horse Monsieur Joseph caught a
soft
sand spot and stumbled with his right front leg.  As he tumbled, I fell
face
first into the ground and my horse landed on top of me.  I was
unconscious
at that time, which was good as I didn't have to whitness the next part.
Here comes the helmet part:  As my horse was trying to catch footing and
trying to get up from on top of me, he apparently kicked me in the back
of
my head with both hind feet.  You see, I'm alive today writing this post
because of my helmet.  OK, my helmet is cracked, but not my head.
