    What injury takes four months to heal?

      Hi, I have an ancestor, named Thomas B. Edmonds, who was in the 1st Mounted Rifles. He was injured at the Battle of Pea Ridge, and records show he was on sick leave for about four months. He was dropped from his original regiment, but he joined the 32nd Arkansas Infantry Regiment four months later. Does anybody have any idea of what sort of injury that could be? I have no idea, so I’m open to guesses.  Thanks for any help!
