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

Five For Friday 1/27/12

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had my 6 month follow-up with Bev (Dr. Grubb) for POTS on Monday.
  • I had my yearly EDS follow-up with Dr. Lavallee on Thursday.
  • My ribs feel like they are going to collapse.  Not cool.  Not cool at all.

After a week of traveling, teaching, appointments, and rehab, this pretty much sums it up for me tonight…

Five For Friday 1/20/12

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.  (I type this every Friday because it holds me accountable each week).
  • I had an OMM (Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine) appointment on Thursday.  I love my doctor’s approach: gentle, yet very effective.  She worked inside of my mouth this time to try to get my jaw muscles to calm down.  The only problem at my appointment was that my blood pressure was even lower this time. Not sure how much I should be concerned about this.
  • After a brief hiatus, it’s back to physical therapy for this zebra on February 2nd.
  • Next week is a big travel week for me: Dr. Grubb and Bev Monday for POTS (Toledo) and Dr. Lavallee on Thursday for EDS (South Bend).  Praying for good weather.
