How my little pony saved my leg Sunshine Blossom!3GqYIJ3ObsCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2500143

on October 8, 2010 I wen't to a motocross race to compete ( dirtbike racing for who ever doesn't know). Every thing was going just fine, until my last race of the night, it was 11pm and I had been riding since 2pm earlier that day so i was extremely tired, two laps until i would have finished the race and been done for the night, but unfortuantly i lost control of the bike and crashed terribly. Thinking it was only a broken leg the on site ambulance took me to the hospital, thinking that they would set the bone and i would be going home in a few hours. A half hour later I was sitting in one of the E.R rooms, and I hear a Helicopter land on top of the hospital, a few minutes later the crew comes down and says they are going to airlift me to Erlanger Teaching hospital in Chattanooga Tennessee ( I was in Calhoun, GA ). I, being medicated on morphine, thought nothing of it as i was pretty delusional. 15 Minutes pass in the helicopter and we land, then i get to wait 45 minutes in the Pre-O.R room, with my leg swollen up to think i weighed 350lb. Once i finally get into the O.R they quickly put me under and start the operation, which i don't even know what it is yet.

What feels like 5 minutes was actually 7 hours, I wake up still medicated but i see an external Fixator with 6 pins drilled into me, 2 on in my femur, 2 in my tibia, and two in both sides of my
foot, confuse I asked what happened to my leg? My surgeon came in and showed me the x-rays, i had shattered my Tibial plateau, Tore my meniscus, and ripped and tore apart an artery all in my left leg. It wouldn't have been so serious if i hadn't torn the artery. They did a vein transplant, in which they took a vein from my right leg and replaced my damaged artery with it. They said my leg was without blood flow for so long that i had a 75/25% chance that i would loose it, 25% that id keep it. so i was pretty worried about that for the first day. Friday came along and i was laying in my hospital bed watching t.v bored as hell, I was flipping through the chanels and at 1:30 the very first episode of MLP;FIM was premiering, I am a 15 year old 6" tall 170lb male motocross racer, most wouldn't think i would be interested in a show about ponies, so i just changed the chanell, after flipping through all of the channels they had i eventually got back to the HUB were 2 minutes of the show had already passed, I thought to my self how i liked the animation so i said screw it and i watched the whole episode, I was amazed!!! it felt like i was back in the early 2000's again, the characters, the animation, everything was just perfect.

A week went by and a couple more surgeries, so 3 surgeries done out of 5 that i had done, and part 2 was on at 1:30 Friday the 17th, me being excited watched the whole episode and once again amazed on how good a show about ponies could be, the morals that it taught, and how to always believe and never gave up pretty much gave me the strength to stay strong and don't never give up. They said it was a miracle that i kept my leg, and that i would have full function of it eventually, when I finally got home, i was forced to sleep on the couch because my bed room was up stairs, I had set my DVR for 1:30 every Friday because i had physical therapy on Fridays at 2pm so i couldn't watch it, and every Friday night i would watch it and fall asleep feeling great, aside from the pain in my leg XD

8 months later I am back on the bike, Racing again always keeping in mind that MLP;FIM was the reason i was able to get back on.

Pic is of me like 5 minutes after waking up from my first surgery, so i was completely out of it, i don't even remember my dad taking the picture.

This is an amazing story and all, and I'm glad you made it through that with the help of MLP, but I'm seriously curious as to how your leg weighed ~350lbs when your total body weight was ~170.

I'm very happy that you were able to keep full usage of your leg, losing a limb would horrible beyond comprehension. I'm also glad that the show was able to help you in such a way. Truly magic.

Brony no. 7098 (EYEpod)Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2510462

this thread really struck home with me, cause i ride bikes too (trail really, though i do some mx) and ive seen first hand people suffer terrible injuries from riding (broken bones, concussions, internal bleeding etc, you name it ive probably seen it happen to somepony or been around when its happened).

what i also found amusing is when somepony does go off badly, everypony at the event, be it another racer or the riders parents, will rush in and do whatever the fuck is necessary to help. even just moving the bike out the way or directing other riders around, and i always feel that threads like these, which takes one persons trajedy and focuses on how this silly little pony tv show helped to remove some of the pain, are strangely like a crash on the track, in a very bittersweet and unusual way.

keep riding, nothing ever keeps a man off the bike :)

You're a lucky man, OP. A guy in my class had his leg crushed between two trucks, and had to have it amputated below the knee. This was in 2009, so ponies were still mostly in Lauren Faust's head. Luckily, you had an awesome show to watch while you were hospitalized.
You've also given me a wonderful idea: If I have surgery in the future, I'm totally going to marathon ponies while I'm pumped full of morphine and sedatives.

A touching story indeed. I like to think I've learned a very valuable lesson. Never take up motocross.

You inspire me.
Everypony who's shared a story like yours does.

When I'm staring down an intimidating project, and the deadline seems impossibly near, I find myself wondering if I can possibly succeed.

But then I think about Twilight Spark1e standing up to his abusive stepfather.
And I think about Anon bringing the light of Pinkie Pie's laughter into a dying girl's final days.
And I think about you, fighting to keep your leg and to get back to riding.
And I don't think I can do it.

I know I can.

That's so weird because I discovered the short-lived G3 on Kabillion on demand and watched it out of curiousity and fell in love with it. I remember the first episode that I watched was dancing in the clouds.
