I haven't written much lately due to the continued lack of free time in my life. I will try to give the short version of what has been happening.

  • House has been recovering from his surgery. Bad new came yesterday when the Rep. from Medtronics was unable to program the neurostimulator to give any relief in the right leg. We are now facing another surgery.
  • Training has been not bad. I have been getting good workouts done. I feel the most improvement in my swim. I am not getting faster but I feel my form is getting better and more efficient. Weekend runs are getting longer to prepare for my half in May. This weekend will be a 7-miler.
  • Sugar (my tri bike) has come off the trainer and going to the bike shop for her spring check up. I am so anxious to ride outside.
  • Although I have been trying to ignore it, there is a problem with my rt foot. I have diagnose it as plantar fasciaitis. I have started taking anti-inflamatories, stretching, and ice.
  • We went to a shelter and rescued a cute little dog for my MIL whose dog passed away. It was not a good match but my daughter fell in love with the dog so---- I now have 4 dogs. His name is Nitro and what a cutie!
  • House and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary. It was a wonderful evening at Olive Garden which included House saving a choking child. There was a small child at the table next to us who tried to swallow an ice cube. The cube lodged in his throat and House reacted quickly and followed his EMT training and opened the child's airway.
  • Weather is improving and all my runs have been outside--no dreadmill!

Waddling forward..............

Happy 20th anniversary!!

Sorry to hear about the PF and second surgery for House, though. But being able to save a child must have been quite uplifting. I'm glad you guys were nearby.

Happy 20th anniversary. you'll never forget that one (him saving a young child)

Happy Anniversary! That's a pretty incredible recap of the evening!

I had to laugh about the new dog because that's something that I would do. I take it that Nitro gets along with the other dogs?

Best wishes with the next surgery. Did they schedule it already? I hope House is able to find some relief.

Take care.

Happy Anniversary to you and House! I am sorry to hear he will have to have another surgery. Hopefully this one will do the trick.

I need some of your swim mojo. *sigh*

Congratulations on the new family member! Nitro is adorable! Hopefully you will be able to find a match for your MIL before you end up with 12 dogs! LOL!
