Question Wood apron under window sill cracked and coming off wall

The wood stool or apron (Google is confusing me which) under the ceramic window sill cracked in a few spots and is coming off wall, so now there's a draft coming in to the room. I'm referring to the slightly angled piece of wood that's vertically under the ceramic/plastic horizontal sill that appears to be nailed to the wall. Guessing it cracked and stuff due to recent very cold weather.

It's only 4 ft wide. Do I just get some special kind of glue and glue it back to the wall? Do I have to buy a new one and nail it back to the wall? I looked on a local home improvement store and the only one they sold was like twice the length I needed.

As you can tell, I have no idea what I'm doing here, but would need to fix it myself.

edit: Looking more online, I almost wonder if it's just "casing" under the sill nailed to the wall, it really just looks like a slanted piece of wood under there, nothing too fancy

you can see the crack a little bit in to the right and where it's starting to come off the wall. That's the only pic I took while I was still there though, so not sure if it's much help

for some reason when I try to link to the image I uploaded it doesn't work it keeps changing the URL on me, not sure

Not sure what hosting company you are using but some are not allowed here.
One not allowed is tiny pics. Imgur and photobucket are ok.

You can post your picture directly to the board.
What site are you using ?
