Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • I had an OMM appointment.  We focused mainly on my neck; especially an OA release.
  • 2 Days of PT~one session focused on strengthening and one session focused on Graston’s treatment.  This is a new treatment I am trying for my hip that uses six stainless steel tools of different shapes and sizes, which helps my PT break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions.

Whoa! March already? How did that happen?!

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 day of PT.  We worked a lot on my hip.
  • While my hip is experiencing this flare, I am looking for a recumbent bike, since it would provide me with the ability to do the cardio I need to fight POTS, without putting much stress on my hip.  Anyone know of one they would recommend?  Or better yet, anyone looking to get rid of one?

Our 2011 Rehash

Just for fun.  And I even got Brad to play along again.

Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

Brad-I exercised more through the spring and summer and then fell off the wagon once school started.  So, my 2012 resolution is to exercise consistently, even when life gets busy.

Katie- I like to make goals to work towards instead of resolutions.  I accomplished over half of the goals I set in 2011.  I will be making 50 more goals for 2012.  Some will carry over from 2011.

Round 8 of prolotherapy.  Check!

Because yesterday was a half-day for elementary students in our district, Brad and I decided to go to Mishawaka for my appointment the night before.  Brad is from Canton and has been going to the same dentist all of his life.  He needed dental work done so he made an appointment for yesterday afternoon.  Therefore, our plan was to get out of school, drive to Canton for Brad’s dentist appointment, and then drive to Indiana for my prolo appointment (which was this morning).

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.  My shoulder did not pop out of socket.  Correlation?  I think so.
  • 1 Day of PT
  • I had a Dr. Rosen appointment.  We talked more about the future and reviewed what is in my control and what is not.  Needed that.
  • I had my monthly appointment with Larry.  We also made a future plan.  I will explain more when I know more facts.
  • I spent a lot of time on record request paperwork this week.
