Conditions of Admission for Cal

I'm a community college student who was just recently accepted to UC Berkeley on appeal. My conditions of admission to Berkeley include the (apparently standard) line item:

You must complete all UC-transferable courses in Winter and/or Spring 2009 terms with a 3.0 or higher GPA and no grade lower than a C.

Well, I've done that, but my grades for the spring semester were significantly lower than usual. Before this last semester I had straight A's with the exception of a single B; my spring semester grades were an A, a B and a C+, all in 5 unit classes for a GPA of 3.1 for that semester. My cumulative transfer GPA before spring was 3.93, and afterword it would be closer to 3.8. I wasn't slacking off or anything. I had some significant family problems that took a large toll on me.

Technically, I know that I've met the wording of the requirement, but could I still be in trouble here? I'm already ashamed enough at how it looks on paper, but if those grades were to seriously affect my life I'd be devastated.

BTW, I'm a first-time poster and I have to say thanks to the CC community, because your posts have been very useful resources in the past!
