I finished up with the 10 minor "surgeries" to my back to relieve the sciatica caused by a traffic accident in Nov.

Anyways, the docs cleared me to start skating and light hockey practices. For now, no actual games or contact. They did warn me that I am now at greater than minimal risk for a crippling injury, but that can change as my condition improves or deteriorates. I passed most of the neuro tests, all voluntary functions came back as normal. I didn't pass the involuntary reflexes portion though, whack the knee and I don't kick, but that could be a temporary side effect from the treatments.

So, now I get to start PO'ng the wife again by waking up at 5am so I can get on the ice an hour before anyone else shows up to practice.
