One of my daughters broke her leg yesterday. Thank G-d, she is OK and it seems like she won’t need the surgery they were originally contemplating.
I have to say that from the minute the accident occurred through the first night back home, our community has been unbelievable. From the School Principal who called me directly as soon as the accident occurred and managed the situation and called me on the cell afterwards and called my wife at home and whe sent my daughter a “Candy-Gram”, to the three Hatzalah members who provided not only expert care but patience, assurance and the feeling that we were in “good hands”, to the students and teachers of the school who assisted in comforting my daughter and shlepping her things home, to the 3 teachers that called the house, to the teacher who came to visit, to the gaggles of girls who visited with gifts and good cheer, to the friends who sent many bunches of balloons, candy, pictures, cards, dvds, etc. to the local physicians who provided their expert advice and guidance free of charge (these guys always get nudged!).
What a community!! Thanks everyone.
