    G/P's scores:
    174.53 (68.27+106.26) 2012 Canadians, 01/12
    146.90 (55.98+ 90.92) US Intl Classic, 09/12
    136.74 (53.71+ 83.03) SCI, 10/12
    135.77 (51.99+ 83.78) TEB, 11/12

    P/I's scores
    146.48 (57.30+89.18) Canadian Nationals, 01/12
    143.76 (55.86+87.90) US Intl Classic, 09/12
    137.92 (54.50+83.42) Nebelhorn, 09/12

    O/W's scores
    145.53 (56.58+88.95) Canadian Nationals, 01/12
    124.96 (51.44+73.52) CoR, 11/12
    130.10 (49.76+80.34) NHK, 11/12

    R/H's scores
    147.51 (58.92+88.59) Canadian Nationals, 01/12
    130.42 (53.79+76.63) Nebelhorn, 09/12
    126.60 (50.00+76.60) SCI, 10/12

    It appears that Paul/Islam's National scores were closest to reality and G/P's the farthest away. And these two teams are very close indeed based on this season's scores.

    On the one hand, the last team to peak at 4th was the Ukranian team of Romanova/Yaroshenko in 1994.

    However.... this happened at a really bad time for W/P (as if there is a good time for this to happen, admittedly). Number of Olympic slots on the line (and while I do think that V/M and P/I/GP or R/H COULD earn three slots, it's by no means a given), momentum slowing down due to a disappointing GP season, the rapid improvement of B/S and C/L (as well as the tenacity P/B demonstrated).... a difficult obstacle to overcome.

    One can only hope for the best. There are breaks and there are breaks. Sometimes a sprain is far worse. If she didn't tear tendons, muscle and require surgery that is far far better (I spent 9 day sin the hospital with operations on my ankle and could not put any weight on it for six months. It was like a bad tv movie of the week - literally I had to learn how to walk again. Hopefully Kaitlyn will be mobile soon and that she iwll be careful.

    Well ankles can be tricky. First of all - we don't know if Weaver injured her dominant foot or not. And usually if it was a clean fracture then no surgery would be required. As Skaterboy indicated depending on the fracture and whether there was any ligaments torn - the length of rehabilitation would vary. At this point W/P need to be patient with this injury and work around it.

    Olympic spots is not a worry for Weaver & Poje. They are still a lock for the #2 spot for Canada to go to Sochi, and if the others are so weak they cant even keep 3 spots without them and a gold or silver for Virtue & Moir that only becomes even more obvious. It is a bigger worry for the other teams.

    Weaver "back on her feet" -- per W/P's own tweet

    Kaitlyn / Andrew ‏@WeaverPoje
    So grateful for your love and kind words. HUGE thanks to Dr Theodoroupolos and Dr Johnny Lau for putting Kaitlyn back on her feet! #GOteam !

    Although unclear what exactly "back on her feet" means, sounds like a good sign.

    Walking cast perhaps? Encouraging news regardless.

    Not necessarily indicative of anything, but the crutches that Kaitlyn Weaver had been seen using a while back do not appear in a photo of W/P taken and tweeted this morning.

    @WeaverPoje

    Possible of course that she still needs the crutches, and simply put them aside when posing (in standing position) for the photo. But who knows??

    As the photo shows, W/P were on CP24 Breakfast this morning.
    And they had tweeted some days ago that they will be on CTV today (presumably during Nats coverage).

    ETA, photo of W/P on CTV set today with Brian Williams:

    I hope that someone in Canada will let us know whatever W/P are saying today about her recovery, please. Thx!

    I have not watched it yet, but the description says, "CBCSports Pj speaks with ice dancers kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje about her injury in December 2012, her recovery and their prospects for competing at Worlds."

    Weaver comments @ Canadian Nats (Jan 19)

    Weaver comments @ Canadian Nats (Jan 19) -- from Canadian Press article as posted by TSN.

    " This year's national championships is missing Canada's No. 2 dance duo -- Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje. Weaver broke her ankle when she fell and slid feet-first into the boards five weeks ago.

    The fourth-place finishers at last year's world championships were at the Hershey Centre to watch Saturday's short dance, Weaver on crutches and wearing a black walking cast adorned with a white flower. They haven't given up hope of competing at the world championships in March in London, Ont.

    "We're trying our very hardest to get back in time," said Weaver, a Waterloo, Ont., native. "We can't argue with the physiology and just make sure we're smart about it and of course, preparing for next year (Sochi Olympics) is of utmost importance.

    "But you can bet your bottom dollar we're going to try everything to get back. We're not giving up yet, that's for sure."

    While Weaver is spending long days doing rehab in Toronto, Poje has kept training at their base in Detroit, with coach Angelika Krylova -- a two-time world champion -- acting as his partner.

    "We've got polka patterns next week so we'll see how that goes," he joked. "It's fun/scary. For me, not for her." "

    The article is mostly about Virtue/Moir's SD.

    Jan 22 article from International Figure Skating -- with quotes from Weaver, Poje, Camerlengo:

    Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje
    Taking it One Day at a Time


    Excerpts:

    When the injury occurred, Weaver was told she had to stay off her left foot for six to eight weeks — and the front end of that estimate is almost at hand.
    “I have a doctor’s appointment next week and we’ll see what he says,” Weaver said. “It will be almost six weeks by then and that’s kind of the number I was aiming toward. It all depends on how the bone looks.
    “No one knows how it’s going to react when I can weight bear and get the muscle strengthened.

    ...

    [From Camerlengo:]
    "But let’s say that in order to have them be ready to be competitive at Worlds, we need at least four weeks of full training. Not four weeks of just stroking around, but four weeks of good training to make them close to 100 percent.”

    Maybe with Worlds in Canada and P&B being injured they still see a medal opportunity if they can get back in time and it is why they are pushing against the odds to be ready. I hope they can be but dont risk themselves in a worse way.

    As some of the articles have already confirmed, she definitely still has both the crutches and the big walking cast on her left foot. I saw her at Canadian Nationals and was very impressed how patient she was with all the fans. I stood back and watched for a while as she signed autographs for an endless amount of kids while balancing precariously on her crutches. She's a real trooper.
