Five For Friday 10/23/15

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Well, I am another year older!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill and recumbent bike, with some light weights and strengthening exercises thrown in!
  • My PT was out of town this week…
  • No doctors either. Pretty quiet week. I like those : )
  • I scheduled my next Dr. Grubb appointment. I was supposed to see him in November, but I could not get in until mid-January. Actually, that’s not bad for him.
  • My body has decided this week it does not need naps. I disagree. A lot.

  • I felt SO much better this week. Thank you, antibiotics!
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, Recumbent Bike, and floor strengthening exercises.

  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. My ribs were a mess, but were finally behaving once Larry worked on me…Sometimes I think my ribs really hate me : )

Five For Friday 10/9/15

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of “kinda” PT. I was feeling sick so after my PT worked on me, she sent me home without me doing my exercises.
  • That same night, I ended up in urgent care. They kept me until they were sure I did not have pneumonia. I ended up getting to go home with a prescription to treat bronchitis and a sinus infection.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. I pushed hard when I feeling better since I missed my normal PT work due to being sick.
