Five For Friday 7/22/16

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I went to Sparrow on Monday thinking I was picking up equipment to redo my home sleep study and found out that since my insurance switched, I had to do an in-lab study. So about 5 hours later, I was hooked up to a million wires in my bed at Sparrow for the night. Surprisingly, I slept more than I thought I would and it wasn’t as traumatic as I thought it would be : ) I was told I will get the results in a week!
  • 1 Day of PT. More core work after cardio.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Should have been 2-3. Need to step it up this week.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. New core exercises which I NEED and rib OMM.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. He worked on me from my tailbone to my neck.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday after Larry. I went from working on my physical health straight to working on my mental health. I firmly believe they go hand in hand.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill and floor strengthening.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • I saw Dr. Klauer at the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Center on Friday in Mishawaka to get my mouth appliance adjusted and loosened.
  • I finished Twistars camp on Thursday so I had Friday to allow my body to die. I barely moved all day, except to change my ice or heat. It was a MUCH needed recovery day.

July! This summer is FLYING! Slow down please!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • No PT, No Home Rehab.
  • 1 Infusion on Sunday.
  • Still dealing with a rib/thoracic flare. A lot of back brace and ace wrap wearing going on…Thank God for ice, heat, and foam rollers too.
