According to the world’s most trusted source for news and information…Facebook, Sharon White will have surgery on Monday as part of her recovery from a fall in the CCI2* at Fair Hill. From Sharon’s Facebook page on Sunday evening:
“Looks like Sharon will have surgery tomorrow to stabilize a fracture near her hip joint and she hopes to be out of the hospital by Tuesday or Wednesday (we’ll see if the docs agree!). Sharon is so touched and humbled by everyone’s support.”
We wish Sharon the very best in her surgery and I for one hope she takes as much time to recover as the doctors suggest, but, knowing Sharon, the doctors will only be able to keep her off of a horse for so long. Get well soon Sharon!!!
In another fall note from the weekend, a good friend of mine, Karly Bilotta had a tough fall at the CDCTA training course on Saturday. Karly was transported to a local hospital and then airlifted to the UVa medical center. The latest I heard is that Karly is doing well but may need elbow surgery and was still undergoing some tests and scans. The horse is fine and Karly is one of the toughest girls I know so she will certainly be back riding soon.
In just a few minutes one of the longest weekends I can remember for eventing will officially come to an end.
