So it looks like I MIGHT be headed to surgery I find out more tomorrow
Well that's what it is I have an appt with a surgeon at the Milwaukee Medical College Apr 15 for a consult. Apearently it's not a common injury, why am I not surprised.

And it HURTS!!! Not like I need to use the crutches anymore, but it just aches GRRRRRR

Wounded In Action

I am sorry to hear about your ankle. Dam that hill!! I rolled my ankle once when I wa hiking. The noise was horrible. The pain that followed was worse. I have hurt my ankles getting off my horse too. I suppose I was not paying attention to position of my heel when I landed. You just cannot anticipate everything...thats what I chalk it up to. Well get better soon Wonded Ankle. You will be back in the saddle again soon

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.

Did the doc mention anything about amputation as an option? KIDDING! And you will have the best parking spots too, bonus!

Ahh, poor you. I pray you'll get better soon, and that the surgery and all that will work out.

Kinda of reminds me of my stupid accident, my horse got its butt stung by a bee, dumped me and I broke my arm. Came back later that night and dug the stinger out of its dock.

Well it sucks that you have to go for surgery, but also good that surgery will help!

Hope you recover good and strong, just follow all the rules and don't try and hurry the process

Well, the day after tomorrow is the surgery and I am officially flipping out. I've already warned my boss that I'll be at work tomorrow but don't count on me to be useful. He said that was fine, lol

On a happier note, I was able to find one possibly two girls that are going to ride Odie this spring. The for sure one is 15, and on the FFA judging team (that my friend coaches and the team just got 4th at State). She has her own horse, but would like something to challange her, but not something she would have to train. Odie is perfect for that:) She's ridden him twice and seems like a good rider and her & Odie get along. She needs work on some skills (keeping him round, forehand vs. hind end, consistancy, etc.) but it's nothing that going to cause a problem.

The other girl is in college, and gets home the day that I'm released from prison, I mean bed rest, lol. Her horse is being leased out, but she still wants to ride & show this summer. We're going to meet when she gets home.


I tried to ride again this weekend....not my brightest idea. But I had to get on one last time:(

*OK, time to continue flipping out and panicking

Hope the surgery goes well and the healing also. Sounds like the first two weeks will be the hardest-do you have some PT scheduled ?

Thanks:)

Not yet, PT comes at the end. So mid-July I think.
