Happy New Year!!!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • It was a pretty lazy week all around. I had to cancel PT on Tuesday because I woke up with the stomach flu. Eleven family members out of fourteen got it. That bug was no joke.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab which included a 3 mile walk with my sister’s pitbull.
  • No doctors.

Christmas! Merry, Merry to all who celebrate!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. My diaphragm keeps getting stuck and doing weird things. After my cardio and lat pull downs, my PT worked a lot on my tummy.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Two miles on the treadmill and two miles on the bike. Leg and core strengthening.
  • Not a great week for sleep or gastroparesis. Blah.
  • No doctors.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Neck flare, but electrical stim and heat took the edge off.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill & strengthening exercises.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. I had stomach acupuncture while he did gentle manipulations on my first rib up to my C1. He put in the leave in acupuncture needles in my belly. Last time, they lasted exactly one week. We will see this time…
  • I saw Dr. Rosen after my Larry appointment. It seriously is the best combination of doctor appointments…I work on my body, and then go work on my mind. Ahhhhh. I am so grateful for both of them in my life. Cannot say it enough.
