1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I killed it this week. Back to cardio and lots of strengthening. Woot.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Intervals on the treadmill=lots of sweat.
  • I saw my new primary care doc. So happy I switched. She rocks.
  • I went to the doc because I convinced myself that I had skin cancer on my face. Turns out it’s an age spot. Nice.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • It was one of those EDS weeks where my body felt like with one wrong move, it would crumble…but I made it through with a lot of heating pad action.
  • 1 Day of PT. I added some arm exercises and am wondering if it is flaring up my neck. Blah.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill intervals and strengthening.
  • 1 needed OMM appointment. LOTS of cranial and rib work.
  • It was back to Toledo on Thursday to see Dr. Grubb and (mostly Bev) or my 6 months POTS check up. It went well; pretty much a maintenance appointment for meds, hydration infusions, and an order for an echo. It was awesome to have Bev back after she had been out for a while with her own medical issues. AND I was seen in RECORD time. My appointment was at 1:30 and I was done by 3:00. That NEVER happens.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • No doctors or therapy. It is a tradition that I always clear my schedule the first week of school so my body only has to work through school and nothing else the first week. Next week, it’s back to reality for this zebra. Fingers crossed.
  • I napped everyday. Thank God. I was BEAT.

I feel like I just typed one of these! Please slow down, last bit of summer. PLEASE.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Two days after vacation. I felt EVERY bite of ice cream.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. A lot of treadmill, recumbent bike, and strengthening.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday for OMM. Back, ribs, neck, jaw. You know the drill.
  • I was back in Indiana on Wednesday for another TMJ therapy appointment. My mouth appliance was adjusted, and I received my sleep study results. NO apnea so I do not have to do any more sleep stuff! Woohoo! It said I had, “very mild snoring at times.” The recommendation? “Patient appears to be obese. Encourage weight loss.” Wellllll, I do want to lose 5 pounds ; ) The next step is an ENT appointment to talk surgery to fix my deviated septum.
