I just realized that I never updated about my echo results. After a week and a half of waiting, the report was finally located.
My Father-In-Law always assures me that “everything will work out.”
So far, he has been right.
My future with teaching has been extremely stressful this summer.
I have learned a thing or two since I was diagnosed in 2010. I always have to preface these posts with the fact that I am speaking for myself, since EDS and POTS are such “spectrum diseases.”
1. Medical Stuff:
- 1 Day of PT. I asked Katie to kick my butt and she delivered. Sometimes I am not sure if the Reformer is a beautiful thing or an evil thing. The jury is still out.
- 2 Days of Home Rehab. I’m happy to report that I did a much better job this week staying on top of doing my cardio and strengthening. On to next week.
- No doctor’s appointments!
2. Last Saturday,
For documentation sake, here are Allie and my speeches from “An Evening with Chris Trapper to Benefit Invisible Illnesses,” which was held on April 14th at Lou and Harry’s Sports Bar and Grill.
“Starting to feel better, so bring on the weather I feel I’ve prepared for anything…
We are the ones who are never afraid, We need no rehearsal to dance. We’re well aware this may be our last chance,
So bring on the avalanche.”
That was an excerpt from one of Chris’s songs, “Avalanche.” For the last two years I have been learning how to face my Avalanche. And you know what? The fact that I am able to stand on my two feet in front of you tonight instead of in my wheelchair, is one of the reasons for me to continue to fight to face my Avalanche.
