Oh, summer you are going far too fast…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Last infusion! (I don’t mean my hydration ones…I’m a lifer for those).
  • PT. Changed it up. Elliptical instead of treadmill. Neck manipulation instead of rib manipulation.
  • Acupuncture.
  • OMM appointment. It had been since February. That’s pretty encouraging, but I needed to get back.

1. Medical Stuff: A week full of appointments!

  • Infusion.
  • Acupuncture.
  • Gynecologist.
  • PT. My PT worked her magic on my ribs. When I left, they were SO much better.
  • Lab work.
  • Sat in my OMT doc’s office for 45 minutes until I realized my appointment is next week.
  • 3 Days of Home rehab! I kicked a$$ this week on exercising. Must keep truckin’!
