    According to the site quiz, I’m a Jack Russell Terrier “detective dog.” Fun!

    HOH: It’s Thursday…but a beautiful Fall day here. We had our first “wind chill” temp today–40.

    Mama is a Bloodhound? Yee gads.
    But she did score a couple of thousand on the cannon shooting game.

    Good morning to you all.

    T&G , our moms are twins! Just be glad your mom doesn’t loose days!

    I am at work. Don’t know if the company computer is at fault, but I could not play the game. Drat!

    Major stress goin on here. Darling Lily is at Luthern Gen in Chicago in the ICU. She had a bad fall off her horse yesterday and has a serious concusion. She was at the barn near their home and didn’t come home on schedule. Kelly called her and got no answer. Drove over and found 3 horses put away, and Iowa saddled and standing by the gate. No Lily. Kelly searched for her and found her lying in the pasture, very beat up looking and semi conscious. She had thrown up on herself and just kept saying she was sleeping. 911 called, taken to local hospital where they cut her clother off and checked for broken bones and internal injury. Then transported to Luthern by ambulance at midnight. They thought she had a brain bleed and Luthern has a children’s neorsurgeon. By 6:00 a.m. they determined that she does not have a bleed, but she is still very groggy and out of it. They will keep her today and will release her later if she is better. They said she can do nothing for several months that could potentially hurt her head. May have sort term concentration problems and headaches. Tough night for her parents!

    Barb,Magpie,Lucy: Sending Powerful Prayers and Positive Thoughts for Lily.

  15. Tupper and Gilly
    11:42 am on October 15th, 2015

    Barb – special daytime prayers are being prepared as we speak. We will prayer for the strength of youth to prevail and help her heal quickly. And we will pray for the only lasting side effect to be a dim memory of this difficult time, for both Lily and her parents.
    And hugs for you.

  16. BooBear
    11:54 am on October 15th, 2015

    Barb, how scary! Thank Kat that her mom went looking for her. Do you know if she wears some kind of helmet while riding? Sounds like it could have been much much worse so thankful that she is getting the care she needs and will be back home soon. Sounds like no riding for awhile.

  17. Masquers
    11:58 am on October 15th, 2015

    Joining in T&G’s hugs for Barb.

    12:00 pm on October 15th, 2015

    T & G and everyone. Thank you, I appreciate all the prayers. You are special friends.

    Have been reading up on TBIs, and found out a bunch that I didn’t know. Lilly is lucky and probably will not have permanent diaability, but it is going to take some time. No visitors, tv, texting, computers, reading, etc for now. Just rest. Evidently if she tries to return to normal activity too quickly she can have set-backs. Even talking causes the brain to work and slows healing. She will probably never remember what caused the accident, but Kelly’s phone is missing, so she might have been using it or taking pics when it happened. She is an excellent rider, so they think she might have been distracted and Iowa got spooked. Her jacket was 30 feet away from where they found her, so she might have been dragged. Who knows! I am having trouble concentrating tody.

    12:03 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Boo, no she was not wearing a helmet, but will be doing so in the future. No riding for now, and no biking, skiing, sports, etc. She is getting excellent care, so thankful for that.

    Barb, joining in on positive thoughts and prayers from Wisconsin.

    And hugs for you.

    Barb, Wish you didn’t have to work today, but hopefully having to keep your mind occupied on other things will help in some small way.

    Very happy to hear Lily is expected to have a full recovery.
    We too were wondering if she was wearing a helmet.

    Barb, Maggie&Lucy: Strong prayers being sent for Lily and her family. Reassuring that a neurosurgeon was at hand and that bleeding has been ruled out.

  23. Howlers
    12:40 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Barb, I am so very sorry and traumatized reading this!!! Today is my first day back in the office, but BooBear’s mom let me know. Thank you to her. How old is Lily now?
    There are so so many instances of brain injuries from horse riding, and as others have said this really could have been much much worse. But this is bad anyway. I will be sending up prayers for Lily and her entire family.

  24. ALR
    12:41 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Prayers from here, too, and lots of healing rest for Lily.

    12:48 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Thanks to everyone. Your concerns and messages mean a lot to me.
    Lily turned 13 last April. She normally would have been riding the trail, but didn’t leave the pasture due to hunting. Probably a good thing she was in a confined area.

  26. Howlers
    12:51 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Mom is gobsmacked that the barn where she rides would allow a 13-year old to ride without a helmet. They should be sued.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    12:59 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Barb, you were wise to look up TBI’s. No matter how minor a head injury is, we need to be careful and observant. The DDD and I have been through this after he had a piece of equipment thing fail. Whenever possible be sure to ask the doctors what you can expect from this. So little is truly known about how our brains work inside our heads so stay on top of the information. Know that the plunderers and the Chetsters are behind you and really care about you.

    Barb, I have just read the news about Lily. Please know that strong, healing prayers go out to Lily, her family, and to you. We here on this blog know the power of Plunderer prayers…

    Hugs to you.

    Barb — I just read the news and am joining all the others in prayers and hopes for a speedy recovery for Lily. While still very serious, it nonetheless sounds as though she very lucky too. Also major league kudos to Kelly for being so diligent in looking for her.

    Also, on the dog front, I too am a Jack Russell terrier; at least I’m keeping some very good company in that regard. For some reason I expected to be a golden retriever, go figure.

    I’m a German Shepard. I copied Mollypop’s and Loulou’s Mom’s score on the game. It is a cool site.

    Barb: let Lily’s family know we are all thinking of her. What a scary situation and I am so glad she was found and now has good care. May every hour bring improvement.

    Doctors are discovering more and more how dangerous head injuries can be. My adult nephew had a really bad migraine a couple of years ago (his first) and his brain is experiencing problems similar to a concussion. I think the first year he could barely work, drive, read, watch TV or be on the computer. Then he seemed to be fine but not too long ago had a set back. It might be very hard to restrict a young person so much but hopefully the injury will heal with no ill effects. And hopefully she won’t be afraid to ride again since she has enjoyed it so much.

    Gosh I thought everyone wore a helmet these days whether horse riding, biking or skateboarding. I’m even beginning to think people walking around on icy, winter streets should wear a helmet!

    3:04 pm on October 15th, 2015

    B&M&L: You and your family are in our prayers. We here at the kennel understand TBI first paw. It sounds like your Lilly was fortunate in the scheme of things just like the Giant was.

    Smoochers: There is a horse living young woman and her grandmother who needs our help. Smoochers on three!

    3:07 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Well gus, live and learn. Lily was not at a stable. A few months ago they moved Iowa to a private barn, where there are 4 horses. Kelly and Lily go over there (5 minutes walk from home)and do chores in exchange for board. No one lives there. The vet recommended this move due to Iowa’s leg injury. The pasture at the stable was too rough and he kept straining his leg. Lily does wear a helmet if she is doing speed classes, or if she were to jump, but has not been wearing one for trail riding. She also was there by herself, although Kelly usually goes with her. I guess there is no one to sue, except themselves.

    Kelly just sent me a picture of Lily in her hospital bed with a Labradoodle therapy dog sitting hext to her. She has her eyes closed, but she is petting the dog and smiling a little.

    Sneeze!…Barb, we here want youse to know dat we are all praying for dat lil’ Lily…snuffle!…I will be saying very strong prayers for her completed healing. Please do not fret, she is in some good paws…sneeze!

    3:37 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Howlers, Lily has still been showing and doing drill team at the stable, but she uses one of the school horses. All she has been able to do with Iowa is walk due to his injuries. She is such a good rider that they didn’t worry about her ridng him alone. Go figure.

  37. Herd of Hounds
    3:56 pm on October 15th, 2015

    B,M,L…(Lucy Lou, whispering), if there is a Labradoodle with Lily, she is indeed in good paws. We are soft and fluffy on the outside and strong as a hickory inside.

    Luna: Message received!

    4:16 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Beau, nice to hear from you, too. I understand that you are a Bible packin Pug who has a direct connection to the Big Guy upstairs.

    Rest easy Lily. I am glad Lily has a furry friend beside her who is making her smile and that the Smoochers are on the job.

    4:45 pm on October 15th, 2015

    In case you are wondering who gus is, in my post up above, that was supposed to be guys.

  42. bluecat

    Prayers for Lily and her family. So glad there’s a therapy dog on the job.

    As soon as we arrived, Belle Starr got straight to work. Her first order of business was to decorate the IV with a ribbon. The ribbon is gold and glittery. Belle Starr chose this understated ribbon so as not to over stimulate our patient.

  44. Thieves!
    5:51 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Beau: While you’re praying for Lily, do you think you could put in a good word for a coupla loveable miscreants? We have upcoming cahoots, capers and misdeeds and we want to make sure we have left nothing to chance.

  45. Kat
    6:23 pm on October 15th, 2015

    I am on my way! Sorry for being late, but I had to wait for Momma to get home so she could take over donut-sitting (that’s what we call Bella nowadays).
    Barb, Momma didn’t realize Lily had moved Iowa. And she wants you to know that she used to trail ride Shiek all alone, when he was anything but a horse who would calmly walk. She says sometimes a horse-crazy girl gotta do what she’s gotta do. I hope she makes a full recovery, and isn’t scared to ride after that. But seeing how long it took Pop to get his confidence back, as well as her friend Wendy, it is very likely that Lily will need to start very very slowly, with a patient trainer who helps her get over this accident. I’m wondering if a hunter’s gunshot is what spooked Iowa. Lesson in all of this is that horses are dangerous, and no matter how good a rider or calm a horse, one never knows.

    Kat, Fellow Smoocher extraordinaire…good to see you on the job.

    Sweet Lily, Rest your head. Angels Watch Over You throughout the night.

    8:23 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Kat: What’s this? You got a donut of your very own. I think I need to add a donut to my collection of the fine things in life. I managed to get Wyatt’s tennis ball and Elim’s racquet ball last night. I’m living the dream.

  49. Wose-the small and meek
    8:32 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Ole Doc: I think your collection will be complete with a Mr. Carrot.

  50. Kat

    Ole Doc, The donut has her own built-in pillow to rest her head on wherever she wanders. Brat.

    Sled Cats!

    8:50 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Kat: I know you really don’t think Bella Rossa is a brat. In fact, there is a picture of you with BR on your porch in the 2016 calendar. Something tells me you are a very good big sister.

  53. Tupper and Gilly
    9:00 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Staff – we do notice that in that picture:
    a) none of those kats seem to be pulling very hard,
    b) none of those kats seem to be going inm the same direction, and
    c) none of those kats are smiling and adorable like the Corgis

    Face facts – Corgis RULE!!!

  54. Martha
    9:10 pm on October 15th, 2015

    I am relieved that those who needed to find Lily and care for her were able to do that. We teachers sometimes see kids who have TBI. We give them whatever breaks they need and we all weather the storm together. Scout says she should find a lap to curl up in.

  55. Staff
    9:15 pm on October 15th, 2015

    I had a friend who had this happen to her 14 year old daughter. The worst for the girl was no reading or texting or playing games on the computer. So glad that she was found. Prayers going out from North Dakota

  56. Masquers

    See youse on the flip side.

    The black Canadians will help with nighttime hospital duty (we are harder to see in the dark for 2 leggers). Darah Thea will mop her sweaty brow, give her theraputic facials and keep her toes toasty. I, Lucy Lou, am soft and fluffy and am great to hold for comfort and make a lovely pillow.

  58. Ole Doc
    9:36 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Kat: A built in pillow? Wow! Me?—I have to make my way to pillows and cushions that may or may not belong to me. They don’t come to me. I go to them.

  59. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:45 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Kat, tell your mama that we had thought about the gunshots, too. Just another reason we are not fond of hunting. Knowing Lily’s personality, she will
    not be afraid to get back on the horse and will not blame Iowa in any way. Might think twice about whatever else she might have been doing.

    Belle Starr, Thank you for all the help that only you can give. Sparkles help and I know Lily will appreciate anything you do.

  60. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:50 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Staff, I think the worst will be the same for Lily. She is very attached to the electronics.

    She is doing better, and probably will be released in the morning.

    Now, it is off to bed for a tired MiMi. Thank you for everything!

  61. Belle Starr
    10:04 pm on October 15th, 2015

    I worrit that bedazzling the heart monitor was a little much, but in the end I’m glad I did it. I was also happy to lend my sparkly ribbon for sewing the back of the hospital gown closed—modesty counts. Heh.

  62. Ole Doc
    10:06 pm on October 15th, 2015

    BML: Tired Mimi—that’s title something I don’t have. I can’t help but want it.

    Tired Mimi: You and Lily are tucked under the Quilt.

  63. Beau - The Black Pug
    10:26 pm on October 15th, 2015

    Sneeze!…Dearest Barb I do pack a mighty big bible and I use it in multitudes of ways and means…cough!sneeze!… I tole you dat lil Lily was in good paws. Da fact dat she may be getting dismissed from dat hospital so soon is totally proof of what I say…AMEN! Bam!

    Good morning. Team Smoochers snuggled close to Lily all night. Now I am heading over to Mim’s to give her some de-stressing kisses.
