Impaled by...

Crutches! Not really. Michael got a hold of my crutches this evening to see if he can use them. I will update about me later when I know what is going on. For now - the top of my right foot is killing me. It's been hurting for a couple weeks. It's swollen with a sharp stabbing pain and hurt so bad last night that I had Russell take me to the ER in the middle of the night. They took x-rays but nothing appears to be broken. I see the podiatrist on Tuesday. I was supposed to see her yesterday BUT we got to the dr. office and they said....

"We're sorry but we scheduled you with the wrong doctor. You will have to reschedule because the person you need to see isn't in today. At all."

I am really glad that wasn't the only reason we headed to Portland yesterday.

So for now I get to wear a "boot" so my foot can't bend. At all. And use crutches.

Wow, I'm sorry you're in pain. :(

When I broke my foot a couple years ago, that boot was sheer heaven, the way it kept me from hurting.

A boot!!! When I mangled my toe all I got told was *duct tape* (can you imagine) - and when I broke my foot my foot was in my Frye boot - so they left it there before they cut it off. I'm so sorry!I wish I could send you some chicken soup, but I'm sure you're fine in that regard.


I just love this picture! The's the place to be!

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
