Micro Horses

We had a patient transferred back from a city hospital today who’d had a microdiscectomy for treatment of Cauda Equina syndrome due to L4/5 disc herniation. She was “my” patient, so I spent a fair while looking up her long and complicated history, but I finally got my head around it all. The nurses didn’t. I sat there listening to their handover as they tried to remember what this lady had - “So, she hurt her back ... while riding a micro horse ... and holding a quarter”. Close enough.
