Yup, been doing all of that. Switching from heat to cold packs too. Got an ace wrap.
I don't think it's just my ankle but also my Achilles' tendon. It's grossly bruised and flexing my foot simply isn't an option right now. I'm wondering if when I felt it pop loudly during the time of me jamming and slamming the whole heel down to stay on that I popped some of cartilage from my old nasty injury....broke it in three spots including my growth plate and had a miserable time healing/rehabbing it. Have since always had very limited flexion in that foot and ankle. So that's the best guess I have now.
Driving is almost not an option but I figured out if I left my whole leg to get to the pedals I'm okay and just press down without flexing and release up without moving my toes to lift my foot.

I'm hoping for some stronger pain meds if I can and be told to stretch it slowly but since I really don't know what's going on in the ankle and foot I'm not going to make it worse and cause more pain.

I did however really have a nice relaxing ride on the trails with the boy. Sunday he got....no we both got the day off and pretty sure he slept all day haha as did I!

Really excited to show you all the video (only two right now till I can get my trainer footage up and going)

Still on such a happy high for the show haha

Corporal,
Thank you! Have never done my hair like that!! My best friend did it for me and it really was fun! I bet it would be cute done in the style of pig tails too hehe

Yeah my mom is awesome and very very supportive....just not when she watches so I was very surprised to see her pull up! Both my trainer and I just laughed when we saw her car. Last time all three of us where up there and I was on a greenhouse at the same show did I get thrown in the warm up and my on saw the whole thing!....of course haha

My trainer is the shiznit haha

It's gonna take awhile to heal. IMO, you just strained the muscle. If you broke it you couldn't put any weight on it, much less ride.
Go to your favorite drug store and buy an ankle brace with Velcro, so you can support your ankle whenever you're on your feet. Think of the scene in "Seabiscuit" when Red Pollard strapped a piece of wood to his boot to keep his injured leg straight. It's the same concept.
I've been healing my left knee--since FEBRUARY!!!! AARRRGGGHHH!!!!--and I finally got a knee brace. It makes a world of difference and I can ground school while wearing it.
I have been taking generic tylonel PM. It knocks me out better than the name brand and I became allergic to ibuprofen. **sigh** (That was my wonder drug, forever.) Some people think Vicodin is a wonder drug. DH shares his with me when I REALLY need one.
I would suggest only ONE for you bc you're as light as a feather. Maybe take a regular tylonel with it. This is for when your ankle is acheing and you cannot sleep. Be advised that you WILL be groggy the next morning, but you'll feel better than with NO sleep at all.
Wrapping it up and keeping it warm helps, too. I also sleep with an extra pillow between my knees to help cushion the affected knee. You will want to elevate it sometimes when you sleep.

I love the pictures!
I'm gonna give you some constructive criticism bc it's MY problem, too. STOP LOOKING DOWN!!!
Sorry. Just practice always looking towards the next jump, or the next corner of the arena, or your trainer...ANYTHING but the ground.
...you can hit me, now...

Thank you I appreciate that.
I was more nervous then I am at home and when I am nervous I look down and make sure hes there in front of me...strange but true.
I will make it a goal for my next outing, dressage schooling show at the same horse park on June 9th :)

Turns out a severe sprain, two torn tendons that go from my foot to ankle and pulled my Achilles' tendon... Left the doctor like this..

I hope you feel better soon! Give yourself time to rest!
