Born 01-18-1961, and ready to get fit! I've been married since 08-01-81. We have two grown children - Ashley lives in Chicago and JM lives in Seattle. We've got three dogs - Skittles RE - a 4 yr old miniature b&t smooth Dachshund; Baxter, a 3 yr old red Beagle; and Knox - an 8-mo old chocolate, smooth, mimi dachshund. I had a major motorcycle accident (me meet the front of a truck) 05-12-03 and almost lost my right leg. Since then I've been trying to get my life back. Working with the dogs training in Rally, Agility, Conformation, and Competition Obedience has been my life-saving and physical therapy. I was an athlete in jr high & high school but you wouldn't know it to see me now. I'm really looking forward to working with everyone here and all of us supporting each other towards our goals.
01-11-09- The TKR went really well. However I did get an infection in the reconstructed portion. From what I can figure, Jack stuck his nose in the wound trying to help. :) It's resulted in another visit to the OR to clean it out and restitch. In addition, I've got 2 more weeks of a 6-wk regiment of IV antibiotics every 6 hrs. We've all survived. Liz

    Hi Liz, I'm back on with Sparkpeople. Go to my sparkpeople page and read todays blog, it will explain what has been going on with me. I'm fighting a lot of abuse from my childhood and it effects my efforts here trying to lose weight. I know it sounds like and excuse and it is, but it's a hard one to move past and move onward. I miss you too! I'm sorry it took me so long to get back up on that horse and ride again but I'm up for the challenge aagin and hope we can be friends again. Hope to hear from you soon. Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon

    Ijust joined SparkPeople and saw that you do Rally and Obedience. I have 2 labs that I do that with and they also do Tracking. Good to see dog people on here. I hope this site helps me to stay on track.
