Five For Friday 1/17/20, 1/24/20, 1/31/20, & 2/7/20

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Four missed Fridays. I don’t even know where to start.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT. 4 sessions. All paid out of pocket. Because, yes, I am still fighting, and yes, my case is still under review.
  • Working my way through Morning Meltdown workouts. Almost finished with phase 1, which means I have about 80 workouts left.
  • Two infusions.
  • One shrink appointment.
  • I decided to get back into acupuncture. I’ve had three sessions so far and I LOVE IT…more-so than I did before. Puts me to sleep every time.
  • Three lab draws.

I just can’t keep up every week! I guess that goes with the Mom life now ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two PT sessions. Cardio, strengthening (increasing weight and resistance), electrical stim, and Manipulative medicine. The magic combo.
  • Four Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill (trying to increase distance/decrease time each run/walk. It’s getting harder but competing with myself makes the DREADMILL more tolerable).
  • My friend got skin cancer a few years ago. Ever since, I make sure I get a skin mapping every year. Came out clear again, thank God.

Five For Friday 10/11/19 & 10/18/19

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two sessions of PT. I think I’m at a point where I’m ready to increase intensity. I love the feeling of progress.
  • Two days of home rehab. I’m trying each time to beat my time on the treadmill. A bit of friendly competition with myself.
  • One shrink appointment = one deeper breath after.
  • Back to infusions! Had my first one in a while. I always marvel at how needed it must have been when I get two liters, and don’t pee for hours afterwards.
  • Flu shot!

  1. Medical Stuff:
  • One day of PT. My hip/back pain has evolved from feeling like EDS pain to an injury pain. We are continuing to work on it with exercises, stim, heat, and OMT. To say I feel frustrated would be putting it mildly. Breathing.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. Trying to make more time for these appointments. They are so, so important for my overall health.

1.Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. My belly was feeling funny so we took it easier on the recumbent bike. I’m going to look into getting a prenatal cradle in the next week just to give my joints more support. Trying to be a proactive EDS’r as this babe gets bigger!
  • Had my glucose test, anemia test, dtap shot, and a heart rate and belly check yesterday with my OB. Things checked out really well. Keep cookin’ baby!
