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

In This Moment..

Written by Katie. Posted in About Me

Stole this short questionnaire from a friend’s blog….

Outside my window: the sun is shining, and there are grass clippings on the sidewalk.  I hear the neighbor girls playing.

I am thinking: That my stomach hurts, and I need to get up and get ready to go see the Gooleys! 

Five For Friday +1…5/6/11

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1.  Medical Stuff:  Pretty quiet week on the medical front…

  • 2 days of PT.  One that went really well, and one that was more of a psych-therapy appointment.  My PT and I discussed how breakdowns every once in a while are healthy and go with the territory.  Everyday I have been trying to focus on my Dr. Rosen homework:  “Making today right, because that is all I can control.”  Some days are easier than others.
  • 2 days of home rehab.  
  • Felt pretty sick Monday and Tuesday.  Today is the strongest I have felt all week.  I am thankful for that.

The Queen Looks Like a Peep

Written by Katie. Posted in Family

Yes, I said that.  But I can’t take full credit after Allie said I looked like a peep on Easter.  But if it were between the Queen and I and our “peepness,” the Queen would have taken the cake for sure. 

So as I have already mentioned, we had a royal wedding sleepover, full of English Tea, Bangers, English Muffins, Strawberry Jam, and big, beautiful HATS!  The hats in themselves warrant their own blog post.  When it was decided that this sleepover was going to happen, my Aunt Laurie and Aunt Mada went to work on designing our royal masterpieces.  As you will see, each hat is a one of a kind.
