    Glad he is doing well! I think it's great that Emily is having the time to do the Europe study. You know there is no way she could have done that if they were competing so I am glad she took the opportuntiy when she had it! Hope she had a great time!

    Good for them, I hope the do some interviews at Nats, Evan is always entertaining.

    On a side note, I have a lot of respect for all the skaters who train while attending college. It takes a lot of discipline to train on an elite level while going to school.

    I'm still :fragile: over not having them competing this season, but nice to see they are both making good use of the time. Hope they get some air time in the NBC coverage of Nats.

    These two just seem so nice. I wish Evan a full and speedy recovery, and I'm glad Emily is getting a chance to use their time off the ice to do something interesting.

    I'm glad that they both seem upbeat about their lives despite this setback in their skating, and I'm looking forward to seeing them back on the ice once Evan is fully healed. (Soon, I hope. :) )

    I am glad he is doing better. I'm sad they won't be able to compete this year. I'll be cheering loud & clear when they come back to competition :cheer2:

    :cheer2: This season has IMO has definitely been lacking without S/B competing - I cannot wait until Evan is healed enough for them to take to the ice again.

    So happy that he is nearing the point where he can train on the ice again!

    I really missed Evan & Emily in the GP series!

    I so hope he can overcome this setback. They are one of my favourite couples, and I was really looking forward to seeing them this year.

    Hope he gets the thumbs up following those tests.:)

    I've really missed them this and can't wait to see them again! I'm glad his recovery is going well and that they've been using the time off to their advantage.

    I'm going to Nationals for the first time and it seems so wrong that they won't be competing. I wonder if he'll throw down a UMichigan shirt/sweatshirt for Meryl and Charlie to wave in the K&C. And one for Alex too, for that matter.

    No one misses them more than Emily's gramps & the family. I have skating withdrawal even when I have to go from March to the fall without seeing them. But it will be great being with them for awhile at Nationals. Everything seems to be going as expected. Hang in there guys. As it was said EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT.

    Add me to the number missing their skating and awaiting their return.

    Gramps, I can only imagine how worrisome this has been for you. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here..
    I'm so glad that you will be with Evan and Emily in Greensboro.

    Ya thanks. The family was going to have a mini reunion & watch them skate. We had bought over 100 tickets for the senior dance. Sec 114. Luckly we have been able to sell quite a few but do have some left if anyone still needs any. Awe the ups & downs of life.

    Emily's lucky to have a grandparent like you.

    I'm so disappointed for them but look forward to them being back next season.
