Not to fret Sakura... your well wishes and points all made sense in the end!
No, I think my knee is just a 'foot on the break pedal transmiting force of impact up into the knee' type thing. It's a little tender along the rim of the lower inside edge of my kneecap, but otherwise seems fine. My chiropractor (who I just saw an hour ago) says I'm in good shape and should just make it in another time or two this week if I can. I was definately carrying some tension in my mid-upper back and was jammed up a bit there, and my nerve zone was shot because of all the associated stress, but he felt that everything was clearing up well. I may still hit up the health center for some muscle relaxants tomorrow, but I seem to be OK.
As afr as practicing, Janelle and I used to compete together and decided to reprise our old comp routines for our local collegiate comp coming up on March 6. We only started working on this a week and a half ago, so didn't really have any time to spare... aside from that, however, I think that psychologically I needed to be on the floor practicing with her just to help get myself out of shock and to focus on something else aside from the accident (especially as the financial ramifications thereof are going to hit me really hard).
Anyway, thanks again for the concern and the information...

Ha, ha...I've got a new one...the other night I saw a classical pianist play and, despite being awestruck by his talent and the beautiful music, I kept thinking, hmm...what dance could I dance to that and oh, that would be a beautiful waltz and, worsestill, gee I wish I'd learned ballet as a kid!
