I feel like I just typed one of these! Please slow down, last bit of summer. PLEASE.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Two days after vacation. I felt EVERY bite of ice cream.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. A lot of treadmill, recumbent bike, and strengthening.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday for OMM. Back, ribs, neck, jaw. You know the drill.
  • I was back in Indiana on Wednesday for another TMJ therapy appointment. My mouth appliance was adjusted, and I received my sleep study results. NO apnea so I do not have to do any more sleep stuff! Woohoo! It said I had, “very mild snoring at times.” The recommendation? “Patient appears to be obese. Encourage weight loss.” Wellllll, I do want to lose 5 pounds ; ) The next step is an ENT appointment to talk surgery to fix my deviated septum.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I went to Sparrow on Monday thinking I was picking up equipment to redo my home sleep study and found out that since my insurance switched, I had to do an in-lab study. So about 5 hours later, I was hooked up to a million wires in my bed at Sparrow for the night. Surprisingly, I slept more than I thought I would and it wasn’t as traumatic as I thought it would be : ) I was told I will get the results in a week!
  • 1 Day of PT. More core work after cardio.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Should have been 2-3. Need to step it up this week.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. New core exercises which I NEED and rib OMM.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. He worked on me from my tailbone to my neck.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday after Larry. I went from working on my physical health straight to working on my mental health. I firmly believe they go hand in hand.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill and floor strengthening.
