Moving slowly forward..but then again…

Well I finally met with my ortho surgeon this morning. He took off my makeshift splint/wrap and checked out the goods. I had swollen up some more since the previous evening and more purple showed up. Even my pinky toe was purple (blood runs downhill he said). Everything appears to indicate a rupture in need of repair but he could not feel any depression along the tendon that is typical of the injury. This caused him to haveĀ order an MRI which I had this afternoon. He said there is a very slight chance that it is a tear that will not need surgery. But looking at the damage it is highly doubtful. But he wants to be absolutely sure. So…unless a miracle occurs surgery is set for 1:30 p.m. on Friday. More once the office calls to confirm….
