Five For Friday 10/18/13

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

It’s the last Five For Friday while I’m still 31! I know I am getting older because I just found my first gray eyebrow hair yesterday. Gah! I plucked that baby real fast. I probably can’t blame it on EDS…or can I…???

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of treadmill work on my own. Plus weights, balance work, and floor work.
  • 1 Day of PT. I spent most of the session working out on the Alter-G (anti-gravity) treadmill at a higher incline and pace. My PT did some cranial OMM, and also checked to make sure I am firing my scaps and glutes properly.
  • I just have two more days on my antibiotics. I am feeling much more human, or I guess I should say I am back to feeling like my “zebra” self again. That’s a good thing.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab/Strengthening/Lifting.  This is a huge improvement over last week.
  • I saw my OMM doctor on Thursday.  I had a fever which is weird because I wasn’t feeling terrible.  It was also one of those appointments when the nurse took my blood pressure, stopped, looked at me with concern and said, “I’m not sure how you are still talking to me with a blood pressure this low.” That was my cue to down some soy sauce and lie down.  Once, I saw the doctor, she worked from my pelvis to my neck.  Let me just say that for someone so hypermobile, it’s pretty crazy how stuck my OA joints (neck) get.
