So Emily came back halfway through marching practice; turns out her leg was fractured (twice, really, she'd tripped and fallen as she did this morning once before and apparently that fractured her ankle to start with. Today's fall made it worse) and she'll be on crutches for at least two weeks. Probably three or four, knowing her... she's fragile. e_O;;
But she seems to be able to get around just fine, she can drive; and I predict that in a few days she'll be quicker on crutches than she was on foot. She's got Michael and Liz to help her; she didn't seem to need me except as a backup, so all shall work out fine and dandy, it would seem. huzZAH.
