OYEZ, OYEZ, OYEZ!
We have wonderful news today! When #1 went to see the orthopedic specialist yesterday, he looked at her x-rays and examined her thoroughly, and then declared that it was OK to take off the "straitjacket" she had been wearing for the past week! And then he said she could start driving again, short distances at first, but that it would probably be OK for her to go to England as planned at teh end of next week! We hadn't yet mentioned that trip but we're all cool about it because Ms. A is coming to look after us, and bringing Sophie and Emily with her!
#1 says the single best thing was to be able to take a long, hot shower! People are definitely a little odd...
We also want to thank all of you, both here on the blog and on FB, for all the support over this past week!
