As a natural worrier and someone's who's instincts naturally assume the worst, I generally fear that something has happened to you any day you're late posting.
And tho' my thoughts are with you, the next time you have something that could be considered a family emergency please don't bother with the updates. While I've come to see your family as an extended part of mine, see to the problem first, we can read about it later.
