Kath Bell-Pitomac (who rode Stella Miss during a fall at Tamworth on Sunday, 10th March 2019), was diagnosed with a diffuse axonal brain injury and has been struggling with fatigue and eyesight issues since her fall, but has been gradually improving.
Kath saw her Neurologist last week for a six-week check up and has been approved to resume driving locally and light activities with her physio. Hopefully, after a month of light activity, Kath will be able to commence more strenuous exercise/sport. Kath has another follow up appointment with her Neurologist in six weeks.
[Update at 11am on Wednesday, 14th August 2019]: Kath has been approved by her GP to return to light duties/ground work for one hour, five days per week. Kath has also been approved by her GP, Neurologist & Physio to commence riding her kids' pony for two days per week. The next focus is getting Kath's vision back to normal. The Specialist has provided Kath with new glasses that will start training her eyes to focus straighter and clearer.
