    Yay for successful surgeries. Thanks for the update, Gramps!

    I'm sure it will be hard for him to wait until he's fully healed. . . if it were me, I'd be going NUTS watching everyone else skating (well, I did back in 07 when I broke my ankle & was off the ice for about 6 months, and I'm about as far from an elite skater as can be).

    Another Canadian booster thanking you, Gramps ,for your update. Here's hoping for Evan's complete recovery and great success for him and Emily in the future.
    I believe in their triumphal return.

    I've been told that information on how to support Evan & Emily should be posted on their website by later this evening. :)

    Gramps, thank you for the update!

    Please, let Emily and Evan know that their many fans will be thinking of them; and wishing Evan the best possible recovery.
    They will be missed, while away from competition.

    Thanks for the update - I'm glad to hear the surgery was successful despite the severity of the injury. It'll be a hard wait and recovery but thank goodness they're in ice dance without jumps, I think they can make it back. :) Best of luck to Evan and Emily!

    That's an awesome interview! I like the interviewer, she asked some good questions and got a lot of info out of them. :lol: at Meryl, Fedor (?), and Marina.

    Evan posted a pic of his wound on Twitter; not for the faint of heart:

    Oohh. Ahh. Eeek. That makes my ankles hurt, and there's nothing wrong with them. *wince* Poor guy!

    Actually, I think that the suture line looks really good. Clean without a sign of infection, swelling, etc. I would think that on the surface that his doctor was probably really happy at what he saw.
