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

Well, I am another year older!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill and recumbent bike, with some light weights and strengthening exercises thrown in!
  • My PT was out of town this week…
  • No doctors either. Pretty quiet week. I like those : )
  • I scheduled my next Dr. Grubb appointment. I was supposed to see him in November, but I could not get in until mid-January. Actually, that’s not bad for him.
  • My body has decided this week it does not need naps. I disagree. A lot.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I felt SO much better this week. Thank you, antibiotics!
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, Recumbent Bike, and floor strengthening exercises.
  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, treadmill, and many foam roll exercises.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. My ribs were a mess, but were finally behaving once Larry worked on me…Sometimes I think my ribs really hate me : )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of “kinda” PT. I was feeling sick so after my PT worked on me, she sent me home without me doing my exercises.
  • That same night, I ended up in urgent care. They kept me until they were sure I did not have pneumonia. I ended up getting to go home with a prescription to treat bronchitis and a sinus infection.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. I pushed hard when I feeling better since I missed my normal PT work due to being sick.

October! The month I turn another year older! Bring it on : )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. We discussed how I am doing and decided to try one time per week, while continuing my home rehab program. If I begin to “crash” I will go back to twice a week.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • One of my OMM docs moved and opened her own practice. Monday, I saw her for the first time at her new location. Her gentle hands and cranial manipulation were able to calm down my head and jaw pain. That is worth the farther drive if you ask me.
