Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One day of PT. Trying to turn up the intensity during my workouts now that my hip is finally cooperating (most of the time).
  • Two days of home rehab. I’m running more! Woohoo!
  • I’m back with my former primary care doctor and could not be happier. She gets me…all of me. So important. She also has EDS and POTS, so she knows the zebra life well.

FOUR WEEKS. FOUR. That is a record! I’d like to say I’ve been slacking, but living in the moment, working hard to be the best Mama, wife, friend, and self I can be, and passing out by 8:30 is more accurate.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT. My hip is doing so much better. I think it’s a combo of things; eating clean, exercising, the right manipulative medicine, prolo, and holding Lucia differently. I’m feeling relieved to think that I finally turned a corner.
  • Home Rehab. I’m running again. Not all running but run-walk intervals and it feels pretty darn good. Also, strengthening and more strengthening.
  • A couple of shrink appointments.
  • Dentist appointment. 37 and still no cavities!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two sessions of PT. Started a few new strengthening exercises for my glutes and hip. We are realizing that if we release (through OMT) my hip flexor area, glute, and tightness down my leg, my hip feels better.
  • Two days of Home Rehab. Interval run/walks. Three rounds of 10 different strengthening exercises. I will find my abs again. I will.
  • Week 3 of the Postpartum challenge. Down 7 pounds.
  • Why I go to Dr. Rosen regularly:
