Christmas Edition!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I sucked up the working out thing SO bad this week. My body feels it too. Way too many Christmas carbs and not enough Christmas cardio. On my way to the treadmill today. It’s not gonna be pretty. Pray. Just pray…
  • No doctors. No PT. Just eating and lazing my way through Christmas.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Day of PT.
  • I wore a light up, Christmas unicorn sweater to school and it made my neck break out in hives…and the hives lasted for five days…and then I said, “Only me.” The end.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Wednesday. I am really trying to take two weeks off from everything over break so I have been trying to get in my appointments before vacay. Fingers crossed my body holds up and it is a good idea, and not one I regret.
  • The exhaustion and fatigue are REAL this time of year. So is the excitement…and unfortunately, those two don’t go very well together. I’m trying.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT with a very stuck thoracic! We got it moving thankfully. Still did cardio and exercises.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Running and exercises. My foam roller was my bestie afterwards.
  • I had an infusion on Thursday. A big shout out to Chris who works at the hospital for always pretending I’m at the spa. He brings me drinks, food on fancy dishes, and warm pillows and blankets that he uses to “tuck in my piggies.” The people who work at the Sparrow Cancer Center are the best!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • NO PT this week so I was on my own. 3 Days of HARD Home rehab. I especially upped the intensity on the treadmill and recumbent bike, and you bet I was one sore cookie. But it felt good…and it REALLY felt good to accomplish new goals.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. I know I need some prolotherapy on my left side, for stabilization, but for right now, rehab and OMM is going to have to do until Brad and I can get to Mishawaka.
