What is wrong with this picture?

Besides the fact that looking at feet is disgusting, can you see how my left foot is swollen and puffy? It's been like that for about five days and it is freaking me out. Walking is extremely uncomfortable and I'm finally going to the doctor later today. Hopefully this does not gross you out too badly (can't be much more sick than the Giant Redheaded Centipede I posted last week). If you have any idea what my problem might be, I'd be curious to hear what you know. AFTER the doctor appointment: I came home wearing an ugly "boot" on my left foot. I had my foot x-rayed and it looks like I have a stress fracture that happened a while back, which hasn't healed yet. Since foot pain is something I suffer from frequently (plantar fasciitis), I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I do remember it hurting really badly recently, with different pains, but did not have a clue why, so I just ignored it. At least I know what the diagnosis is now and will take it easy and try to let it heal better by doing less on my feet, using ice packs, etc. I don't have time for this. What a pain.

Kelly, all I know is it is called edema. Which means your body is accumulating fluids. Did you hurt your foot?

Good luck at the doctors. I hope that you are feeling better soon.

did that centipede bite you (or something less deadly, I suppose)?

I thought you were going to say you dropped something heavy on your foot during all your re-decor/re-org adventures!

please let us know you are okay!
bless your heart, kelly. i hope you feel better. i was actually told i had one of those as well, but never got the pretty boot! does it come with a heel?

Oh my gosh Kelly!!! I'm soooo sorry!!! I had one on my mission from running all over the place on it. For three weeks it was black and blue and twice as big as yours and coming out of my shoe. I had tears running down my eyes but kept on working until my comp made me go to the doctor (our area was rockin' and I didn't want to stop working, stupid me). I hope you heal quickly. Those walking boots are sooo hot during the summer. I feel for you! Hugs!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
