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? ; )

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.
