Five For Friday 12/19/14

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

I made it! Christmas vacation is here!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I added some crazy hard balance exercises to my program.
  • No days of Home Rehab. I caught what has been going through my classroom and my asthma flared up, making it really hard to breathe. Vick’s and my nebulizer became my BFF.
  • 2 Days of breathing treatments, four times a day.

Life has been going at a crazy pace, but I guess, better late than never…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I have been having increasing headaches, which I suspect is from some neck instability. My PT did a lot of cranial work, which is an incredible help with decreasing the amount and severity of headaches. It may be time for more prolotherapy.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I saw Larry on Friday. The focus of our appointment was my ribs…I had about 5 out so he put them back in place, and also helped me figure out how to schedule the echo that Dr. Grubb ordered for me. It’s that time again. I was told every 2-3 years, an EDS’r needs their heart checked; mainly for mitral valve prolapse.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Knocking on wood big time BUT I think I may have turned the corner for the better with POTS. My super bendy fingers and toes are crossed tight.
  • 1 Day of PT. Graston’s Therapy on my quads.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 shrink appointment.
  • I saw Dr. Winkler on Thursday for OMM.
