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

Five For Friday 8/10/18

1. Medical Stuff:

  • This medical version is dedicated to my Dad. I’ve been in Chicago all week with my sister, Mom, and him since he had back surgery at Rush University on Tuesday.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab in the Chicago gym hotel. No excuses.

2. The surgeon said Dad’s surgery went “unusually” well. They fixed the fractures in his spine, took out a disc, and put a cage around out. We are now in Lombard (Illinois) at Allie’s house while he continues to recover. There’s lots of pain but the surgeon said that was to be expected. Fingers crossed a zillion and one times over that it will be successful and he will feel relief.

3. Want a cute pic? Such a scary Pitbull helping his Tapa recover.
