On Alert

It's after 10 p.m. and Tootle hasn't called, so I assume that she is doing OK at the sleepover party. She likely is already sacked out because she has only stayed up past 10 once or twice in three years. She's also likely to be the first one up in the morning. I'll continue to stay close by the phone.

Tootle's soccer game was called off due to rain but Doodle played in the rain (fortunately there were some breaks in the rain). She assisted in the only goal of the game, with a beautiful pass to her teammate, who booted in an equally terrific goal. As defender, she also blocked what almost certainly would have been a goal for the opponents. The much larger opponent practically tackled Doodle, who then collapsed, not moving for what seemed like an hour but was actually 2-3 minutes. I ran down to the sidelines and was there to greet her as she walked off the field. She said her elbow cracked, but it now seems that the bigger injury was to a tendon in her leg. She was able to go to the bowling birthday party, so I think she'll be fine, but we're still applying ice and dispensing Tylenol.

Hope Tootle had a great time at the party and that you were not called away in the middle of the night!

Way to Doodle in soccer! I hope her injuries are doing better!

Glad she wasn't hurt any worse. How scary for you.
