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

Five For Friday 5/3/13

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Happy May…which means Happy Ehlers-Danlos and Vasculitis Awareness Months!

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • I traveled to Toledo, OH on Monday to see one of my POTS specialists, Dr. Bev.  More about that soon.
  • I traveled to Mishawaka, IN on Thursday for prolotherapy injections. More to come on that too.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.

2.  My family is on intense baby watch.  My sister, Kristen, (the one who lives in Philly) is due May 7th so it could be any day now.  I can’t wait to meet my new niece, Annie when they come to visit in June!  Watch out! This little nugget is about to be a big sister!

3.  Today’s mail included good news and bad news.

I always like to get the bad out of the way first.

I received my 8th layoff letter in 8 years of teaching.  It has always worked out in the past so fingers are triple crossed.

I received my 8th layoff letter in 8 years of teaching. It has worked out each year, and I have always been called back to school at the end of August, so fingers are triple crossed that it will work out yet again.  Still, not a fun thing to receive.

Now, on to the good mail…

These came.  Pure joy.  I think this will be my 8th or 9th time.

4.  I am excited to read my new book, thanks to my zebra friend who visited me while I was in Toledo!  Thanks so much, Steph for the gifts! So thoughtful of you!

5.  Wednesday, my class went to the MSU track for ACES day, (All Children Exercise Simultaneously) and boy did we exercise.  I am just thankful I was able to hang with my 5 & 6-year-olds.  I made it through all of the exercises on my feet; something I would have never been able to do two years ago.  Later that day I celebrated Katy Rose’s 5th Birthday with the fam at Chuck E. Cheese.  It’s unbelievable to me that this girl is 5!

    If I’d known you needed tickets to my band I’d have just given you some when we worked together Wednesday.
