Great story, Erin! Gotta love Bob.
And, I'm weighing in with Angela here on describing taking care of yourself as a "luxury item". oops - you're gettting (lovingly) scolded in stereo!!
Just so happens, my dear, that treating things like plantar fasciitis is, ummm, what i do.
I'm curious what you're doing for treatment and have some suggestions for recovery if you're interested.
