Azalea issues (or so I thought)

I knew only this forum would understand this.

One of my new Azaleas had started to droop. Only part of it was drooping and I was so disappointed because I had tried really hard to water it well through our dry times. The day I noticed it I had NO time to water because I had 2 extra kids at my house and two extra teenages. (Long story). We all had to get to church and I threw the hose at my husband as I left.

On further inspection today I realized that the reason that it was drooping on that one side was that the branch was broken off. Some 'little boy' in my house must have stepped on it. Yeah, azaleas don't do well with no soil or water. At least I'm not losing the whole plant.
