She had a picture of the bruise in the e-mail, but it wouldn't print on Spark People. <BR> <BR> She is the one with the broken arm. She took a fall before our birthday celebration and I noticed that she was not moving much. I don't know what day she fell or how long it was before she went to a doctor.
