Five For Friday 7/30/15

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I take Domperidone for Gastroparesis. I called this week to fill my prescription at the compound pharmacy I use, and was told the US can no longer make it. SO weird. So, after many calls to U of M and the Canadian Pharmacy, it is now coming from England, then to Canada, and then to me. I should have it by the end of August. In the meantime, if I look pregnant, I am not. Just for the record.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Well, my break from PT has come to an end. I will be starting a new place next week. I have mixed emotions about this. Hoping it goes well…and the PTs are eager to learn.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. He mostly focused his manipulations (OMM) on my lower ribs since I have been struggling with them quite a bit lately. I left with my ribs wrapped with ace wraps. My body appreciates the compression when I have flares like this one. Larry also decided it was time for me to try out a new PT place…sometimes I need a kick in the butt to try something new, and he is giving me that kick…Love the tough love.

Summer, please slow down! July?! How is that possible!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • My ribs still hate me. I need to get back in for more OMM.
  • When my ribs flare, my gastroparesis flares. Happens every time. If there is ever a research project done on us, sign me up.
