UPDATE: Well the official verdict is I will be going under the knife on May 2nd
It's an outpatient surgery thankfully, so I'll be able to sleep in my own bed. The Dr is going to grind out a bigger notch in my ankle bone for the tendons to stay in & then repair the thingy that holds them all in place.
So that means I have to spend 10-14 days with my foot above my head, 4 weeks in a hard cast (non-weight bearing), then 6 weeks in a walking boot. Supposedly as soon as the boot is off in mid-July, I can ride again right away
Which of course I will head to the barn before I head home from the Doctors, lol.
On the bright side, if there is one, is that I get a handicapped sticker to use until the end of Sept. Our county fair is the begining of Sept., no parking a mile away for this Mom, lol.
