tendons in place, holes drilled, ready to re-attach the retinaculum ... this is difficult to explain without a drawing but she has slit the retinaculum vertically and it's drawn back like a shower curtain on either side of the bone ... she will take the right half and pull it over the tendons and tuck it under the bone, draw the left half over the drill holes, and then run sutures through the topside to the bottomside of the ankle bone catching up both pieces of retinaculum ligament and locking them to the bone ... the tendons slide in the tunnel she has created
