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

Five For Friday 11/18/11

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I saw Larry in the office on Monday.  We talked more about my physical therapy plan (most likely I will be trying out an every other week schedule to see how I do after Christmas break).  He also put 4 of my ribs back in place and manipulated my OA bone that was rotated.
  • Today, I had my 9th prolotherapy treatment.  It has been a rough one, but I should hopefully be back on my feet tomorrow.
  • This week marked my one year anniversary for my POTS and EDS diagnoses.  Hard to believe.

2.  On Saturday, Brad and I went to the Wharton Center to see this…

I loved every minute of it.  It made me want to run out and choreograph a few dances.

3.  So, I had blogged a few weeks ago that I had spoken with one of the founders of the National Dysautonomia Research Foundation.  This week in the mail, I received these (at no cost) from the foundation

The Mystery Diagnosis Episode: "The Woman Who Kept Falling Down"

One of Dr. Grubb's books, The Fainting Phenomenon


Many educational pamphlets about Dysautonomia


4.  Some people have asked what I sent to Jackie for the last giveaway.  Here’s what I sent her: a few things that have gotten me through some difficult times…

Lisa's book, a Chris Trapper CD, an inspirational quote magnet, and a "Life is Good" Sticker


5.  I’m feeling kinda sad today about Regis’s final farewell show.  He and Kelly made me laugh and kept me company in the morning all last year, when Brad and my family were at work.  I have always loved watching him; even when I was younger and Kathie Lee was his co-host.  But I guess if I were 80, I would say it was time to “move on” too.  So long, Regis.  I will miss you.
