Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

FOUR WEEKS. FOUR. That is a record! I’d like to say I’ve been slacking, but living in the moment, working hard to be the best Mama, wife, friend, and self I can be, and passing out by 8:30 is more accurate.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT. My hip is doing so much better. I think it’s a combo of things; eating clean, exercising, the right manipulative medicine, prolo, and holding Lucia differently. I’m feeling relieved to think that I finally turned a corner.
  • Home Rehab. I’m running again. Not all running but run-walk intervals and it feels pretty darn good. Also, strengthening and more strengthening.
  • A couple of shrink appointments.
  • Dentist appointment. 37 and still no cavities!

  1. Medical Stuff:
  • One day of PT. Because this lower back/hip stuff thinks it can stick around, it was time to get fitted for a soft brace. I need the stability and I finally gave in. Hopefully it will be temporary until I can get stronger and then throw it an drawer. In the meantime, I have a big, black soft brace holding my tummy in. I guess that’s not terrible.

I am officially on break! Time to rest, recover, and enjoy family. Very needed…and very grateful to have the next two weeks off.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Electrical stim has been a wonderful thing for my neck lately.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Big focus on scap firing exercises.
  • No doctors!
