The Story of Richard's Foot (Continued)

Thanks for all of your concern about Richard's well-being; we really appreciate it. Rich returned to doctor and they have changed their diagnosis. His foot bone is bruised, not broken. It hurts for him to walk on it, so he has it up most of the time.

Richard's Boo-Boo

Richard was at work a couple weeks ago and he dropped a 55-gallon drum on his foot. He was wearing his steel-toed boots, but the drum missed the steel-toe by less than an inch and slammed down on his foot. After a couple visits to the doctor, they determined that he has 2 or 3 fractures in his foot. I would post pictures, but he's foot is kinda gross. ;) He's been taking it easy at home since it hurts to stand, walk, etc. The foot doctor, who found the fractures, wanted to put Rich in one of those ski-boot casts, but Rich was like, "Man, I've got my rep to think about." The doctor generously allowed him to just have a sandal-looking shoe instead; Rich calls it his "gimp shoe." Rich is doing well; a lot of pain, but he's in pretty good spirits.

Richard was home sick yesterday and today. I called him on my lunch hour to see how he was feeling and he told me about the following experience that he had earlier in the day. While he was home, he got calls from several telemarketers and he ignored them. After these calls, he decided to answer one. Instead of informing the person on the other end of the phone that he wasn't interested in their product, service, or survey, he pretended like he didn't speak English. As the telemarketer said "Hello", Rich replied with an accent "Hello?" The man on the line repeated "Hello?" To which Rich said "Thank you. Hello?" They went back and forth a few times until the sales person hung up the phone with a polite "Have a nice day." I laughed so hard when he told me about this I almost peed my pants.

How Much I Love Richard...

I sat down to blog tonight, but I didn't know what to blog about. So I asked Richard "What should I blog about?" He said "How much you love me." So that's what I'm doing.

I love Richard because he is an amazing man. He is smart, funny, and handsome. He is my hubby and my best friend. We can go out and have a great time or stay in a just laugh all night long. I love him because he is the world's greatest snuggler. I love that he likes the way that I make food, even if he could make it better. I love him because he has a strong testimony in the gospel and he strengthens me. I love him so much for so many reasons, but most of all I love him because he is kind and loving and understanding to me and my needs. I love my Richardo!!!!
