After I hurriedly finished getting dressed, I went to the school and retrieved Emma. It was a long hop to the car since I could not carry her nor did she want two 8th grade boys carrying her to the car. The gym teacher insisted that we would need to get it checked out at the ER since the accident took place on school property. Ugh, poor Emma...poor us!
When we got home Jonathan and I had to strategize how best to work an undetermined amount of time at the ER into our day. Jonathan was having a bad day himself physically after coming off an intense Easter weekend of ministry on top of returning gut pain and no energy. Therefore, for the first time in Kleis family history I attended a child in the Italian ER all by myself. Jonathan drove us and carried Emma into the hospital and then went back home to wait for our call when we were done. We didn't know how long it would take and someone needed to be home to let the boys in when they got home from school.

I brought a sack of food, water, reading material and a back up charger for what could be a long day. We arrived at 10am and thankfully things moved along really quickly. An orthopedic assessment, x-rays, return to the orthopedic doctor and check-out were all amazingly accomplished in just 2 hours! Alleluia!
