Misty, we are thinking of you, and good luck and we sincerely hope that the op will be a huge success, just enjoy those few seconds while the doc injects that "feeling good and sleepy" milk into your veins!!

Thanks to all for the well wishes, the update as per thread from Sunny

Hi, Misty is fine - just spoke to her, was in quite some pain before, but lucky she is a survivor and due to the great support of the WD she is in hospital now and will be on the road to recovery :) broke a leg just under the knee - still waiting on the doc to hear whether she will need surgery :(

PS: Misty said to tell you all she did NOT fall :) the impact from putting her leg on the tar to stop from falling off the bike, snapped the leg  ???

Thanks to Li and co!

Just a quick update, Misty has seen the Orthopaedic surgeon and the news is not so good - seems like the bone at the bottom part of the knee area has splintered and it will need an operation, with plates and screws and a possibility of bone construction.....but she is keeping her smile on, although she is not too happy about the news that she is not allowed on a bike, be it with or without an engine for at least a year! and no walking on the leg for the next 3 months! They will operate on Monday :)
... “There might be a few bumps ahead in the road, but luckily you are well trained in off road riding!” ... PS: for sure, I'm a lot tougher than I look!! ;)

Thanks Li for getting to me so quickly - had never been in such pain in my life!! And to Jules and Pistol for taking care of my bike.
Sorry to all the girls for missing the ladies weekend, was a bummer!!!

The op is for anytime after 12 - Leon & CG took some nice pics of the 3d scan which they will post later - not looking pretty

Eina eina eina ... thinking of you !!!  Missed you big time over the weekend.  :3some:

Good luck for the op - you will probably find that the pain will be more manageable afterwards.

The weekend was just not the same without you!  Was so sorry to hear you had hurt yourself!  Strongs!

Hope the op goes well and you get better soon.

Sorry to hear this. Hell girl, if you can do that without coming off maybe it would have been better to take a dive. Hope you heal quickly and strongly. Luck.

Misty had been planning and looking forward to the ladies weekend for some time, and seeing that she would be away I took the gap and planned a weekend away with my daughter. Saturday morning Misty phoned me: "I just had a little swerve for a car and another swerve for a tree but I DIDN'T fall off!!!  I hit the tar with my foot though and then couldn't get off the bike my leg so sore"

"Ok" I say wondering if I should say well done for saving it, and half expecting her to reply that she is on her way to the ladies weekend by now.

"I'm in hospital - Li brought me... it does'nt look good - so much pain"

Geez!!! You know that feeling when you really did'nt expect what was coming and you sitting helpless 150km away!!!

You never know how life will turn - we had just moved into a bigger place, started the mountain bike thing like Beemerman said!!! and and life was settling into a new routine and there were some good rides planned (on the motorbikes ok!!!). Unfortunately this is a setback, but only for a while - Misty is one helluva tough and determined chick, so we will get her back on her feet soonest whilst taking note of what the doc orders: take it easy on that leg (for up to 2 years, otherwise...).

Misty we thinking of you for the op today, and I will post later as to how she comes through.
