Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Back at it. Lots of cardio, strengthening, electrical stim, and OMM.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Hard workouts. Different workouts. I’ve been so sore.
  • I saw Dr. Rosen on Tuesday. Talked about some med switches and the theme was the “grays” in life. Grays are super hard for me.

Five For Friday 1/13/17

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I did so much better this week. 2 Days of Home rehab and 1 day of PT. Three HARD workouts. I’m trying to get my muscles back on track, and they were definitely feeling it this week ; )
  • 1 Shrink appointment.
  • I went back to the ENT about looking at my deviated septum. I got there and they STILL did not have my CT scan from my other doc, so it was pretty much a waste of time. I called and my other doc said he will be sending it for a third time. I’m not exactly sure where the miscommunication is coming from, but I’m really, really hoping the third time is the charm.
  • Had a better sleep week. Praying it continues.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Back to the eye doctor. Back on antibiotic drops. What the heck? Why won’t this infection go AWAY?
  • 1 Day of PT. Strengthening, stim, and OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Infusion. Thank goodness I have access to this treatment for POTS.

Five For Friday 3/6/15

Whew! What a week! If I’m being honest, I do not think I’ve been this happy to see a Friday in a long time. I don’t think I’ve had this many tears in a long time.

BUT, if I were to find a positive in all of it, it is that I made it. And I’m smiling, and the sun is out, and I have two legs, and my family and friends are the best, and I have a job that I love, and I have medical insurance, and, and, and…Perspective, my friends. Sometimes I forget.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of cranial work. Lots.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • My echo-cardiogram was normal! Thankful!
  • My glasses saga continues. I took my glasses back to the eye doc. Long story short, they are getting made for a third time.
  •  I saw my shrink on Thursday. Fabulous timing.
  • A week of POTSy insomnia.  I keep repeating my mantra; it will pass…it WILL pass.
  • Day 9 of my left eye twitching. I told my Mom I think it’s Ebola. She laughed at me.

Five For Friday 9/5/14

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Our treadmill is broken so I took my walking outside. Don’t get me wrong. I love being outside, but I honestly miss the treadmill for my cardio time.
  • No doctor’s appointments.
  • So much fatigue. I made it through the week but my body is definitely adjusting. By Friday, I was wishing for a coffee IV.
