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.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Recovery, recovery, recovery. NO PT, no home rehab. (I wasn’t allowed to because of the septoplasty, so just good ol’ RECOVERY.
  • Monday, I had to get my nose splints out at the hospital. Holy crapballs, those things must have been up my brain hole they were so ginormous. Good thing it went so fast…or I may have slapped my extremely nice doctor. I have so much less pressure now, which is awesome. Feels like I lost a few pounds!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 OMT Appointment.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Day of PT. So much sweat!
  • I finally had the septoplasty (my deviated septum was corrected) on Wednesday. After a year of various tests and discussing it, I pulled the trigger and went for it.
  • Lots of fun recovery time for my nose. The first few days were no picnic, but life is getting much better day by day.

April! Already one week in! Howwwwwwwwwwwww?

1. Medical Stuff:

  • No PT. My PT is in Mexico.
  • 3 HARD Home Rehab workouts. Trying to tone more; especially my back, thighs, and core.
  • Had my bi-annual echo to make sure all is good with my heart. EDS can affect anything so it’s important I get an echo every couple of years. I will get the report in a week. Oh yea, the hospital had a code red while I was there. Never dull.
  • I had an infusion Wednesday night. I made the most of it with trashy TV, warm blankets, and fun nurses to chat with.
  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. Are you gathering how sexy my spring break has been? ; )
