    Of course, it's possible that her source is misinformed or that there has been a later/different medical diagnosis; however, she would not have tweeted had her source not been a good authority.
    - I really hoped that it's not true. I guess, now it won't matter if Kaitlyn is healed by Worlds, because they can't go to Nationals anyway. I believe they are stricter with those things in USA and Canada - or is there a way around this?

    Because of their national and world ranking, I believe they could apply for a medical bye to Worlds if Kaitlyn is ready in time.

    Probably not, unless she can prove that one of her parents was born in Lithuania. If so, she would automatically become a citizen. But since Lithuania doesn't permit dual citizenship, she'd have to forfeit her US citizenship.

    Otherwise, she would have to apply for naturalization, which requires a 10-year residency and fluency in the Lithuanian language. That would rule out competing in Sochi.

    I believe she handed in her citizenship documents at the start of October during her trip to Lithuania. See their Facebook fan page for more details!

    I'm hoping we get more detail on Kaitlyn's injury when it's known. Not all ankle fractures are the same, it depends on which bone or bones are broken. I'm really hoping they can make Worlds if they get a bye to Nats. They earned that placement along with V/M. Such a shame to see them miss out. If Tessa and Scott can overcome, they have the grumption to do it too. If it had been any other team skating last year, there would not have been the 3 spots. Here's hoping.

    The web info I've found on dual citizenship in Lithuania allows for some exceptions, and I suspect were citizenship to be granted, it would be on an "extraordinary talent" or "service to current citizen" exception anyway.

    Thank you, IceDanceFan1 for the heads up on their fan page -- I'll track it down now.

    So sad for them. Surely wish her a successful surgery and that she is healed and whole again quickly.

    Cute ........I'm hoping they all have a great Christmas and New Year as well. Here's hoping the healing process is a speedy one for Kaitlyn and we see them back on the ice asap.

    There is a new article on TSN about Weaver/Poje (was linked on GS):http://www.tsn.ca/figure_skating/story/?id=413980

    Apparently Poje is training with Krylova while Kaitlyn is doing rehab in Toronto. Now,I love Weaver/Poje together,but I would pay good money to see Poje/Krylova train together.

    Whoa! I think Kaitlyn is a beautiful woman, and her and Andrew look fantastic together, but him with Anjelica would be totally smokin'!!

    Weaver and Poje their time is now

    Kaitlyn had also been injured years ago. Andrew had to continue training with Bourne. As I recall, Kaitlyn said she was wondering if Andrew would be disappointed with her skating, after having practiced with Shae-Lynn. Of course, she wasn't as experienced as she is now.
