Five For Friday 10/27/17

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Short and sweet…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Trying to come out of my neck flare. Extra stim, heat, and OMM. My jaw is still an unhappy camper. Sigh.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Less intense. No upper body weights. Trying to calm things down.
  • Infusion on Wednesday. It always amazes me how my body sucks up the fluids like it’s starving for them. And my nurse is always amazed that I never have to pee. I guess that’s why I need them.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • My latest EDS Fun: JAW. FLARE. It keeps dislocating on the left side. I’ve been living on my heating pad. Fun times.
  • 4 Home workouts this week: 21 Day Fix, PIYO Sweat, 10 miles on the Recumbent Bike, Running and a lot of core. I think I may have overdid it a bit. I will be taking it easy this weekend.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. My doctor kept putting my jaw into place, and it kept popping out. She told me to take it easy to try and get it to calm down. Do you know how hard it is to try not to yawn?!?!

Friday the 13th!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. A lot of rib OMM and cranial work after cardio and strengthening.
  • I’ve been doing various Beachbody exercise programs and I like the variety. I am figuring out how to modify as I go. So far, I have done 21 Day Fix Cardio, 21 Day Fix Pilates, and PiYO Sweat.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had a procedure done yesterday where I had to be put under. It went well. I am just SORE today, but will be back in action soon. Meanwhile I am getting in some good sleep and a lot of one-on-one time with my heating pad. HOT.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Infusion on Wednesday.
  • PT on Thursday.
  • 3 Home Workouts. 21 Day Fix, and treadmill and bike.
  • I LOVE Shakeology. I have found something with having gastroparesis that fills me up, gives me so many nutrients, and is gentle on my gut. Let me say it again, louder I LOVE IT.
