Oh I know, Im not playing on it. I'm not even walking without a cane, not because I *need* it, but I'm uncomfortable walking without it right now. I dont mind walking across the house without it, but I dont even want to do that for fear of falling and hurting it further.

Dont worry though, I wont even think about playing on it till the doc says I can, or at the very least, some sort of time frame he gives me. (if he says 4-6 months, Ill try to skate around without playing around month 2 or so, just to keep my feet)


edit: the only thing Im doing hockeywise is watching it, and playing around with my smart hockey ball
