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

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 OMT Appointment.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Day of PT. So much sweat!
  • I finally had the septoplasty (my deviated septum was corrected) on Wednesday. After a year of various tests and discussing it, I pulled the trigger and went for it.
  • Lots of fun recovery time for my nose. The first few days were no picnic, but life is getting much better day by day.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday. Growth. Breathing. Perspective. GROWTH.
  • I had my pre-op at my ENT for my nose surgery coming up next Wednesday. I also had labs drawn for it, and the over-the-phone pre-op with one of the surgical nurses. I’m pretty sure this will NOT be the highlight of my summer. Let’s just get this over with, shall we?
  • 1 Day of PT. Back at it after recovering from NYC! 4 cardio miles, lots of strengthening in a core circuit, stim, heat, and OMT.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One Day of PT. No exercise. Just OMT and LOTS of heat and stim to get me travel ready because of my angry, spasming ribs.
  • One MASSAGE to calm down my angry, spasming ribs.
  • One appointment with my OMT doc to work on my angry, spasming ribs. Are you seeing a pattern, here?

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. It was after field day so I had been running around in the sun for three hours. I had to suck up my pride and admit that it was probably best if we did heat, stim, and OMT only. That’s really hard to do sometimes.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • No doctors. I am trying to keep my schedule clear these last weeks of school, because I have learned from other years how hard the end of the year is on my body. Maybe I do get a teeny-tiny bit smarter with age…it’s all about pacing… ; )
