Five For Friday 3/20/15

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I was dragginggggg. Days like that, I greatly appreciate my PT’s tough love.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill and floor exercises.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday for cranial therapy. I told her all about Henry (my annoying left eye twitch that will not leave). She decided to do auricular therapy, or in other words, ear acupuncture. She put 3 needles in my left ear, and they actually just fell out this morning. I’ll be honest.  I was kinda skeptical at first, but I have had the most relief I’ve had in a month after she inserted the needles. The human body NEVER ceases to amaze me.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had my monthly Dr. Larry appointment on Tuesday. We worked on updating my needed work accommodations for the approaching school year.  He also did his usual magical OMM on my ribs, neck, and head. These appointments are like tune-ups to help me function until the next appointment.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. Love him. Love gaining perspective with him.

Happy August, friends! I have to admit, my reaction to August is always mixed; I know there is still more fun and relaxation to be had, but I also know that life will soon go back to the “fast” pace that is often hard for me as a zebra at the end of the month…Sooooo, I am working hard on living in the moment, and not projecting.  Easier said than done, but I am trying!

For the foundation, Gympalooza is coming up on August 23rd! You can check out the FREE event here:

Anyways,

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. The usual drill. Lots of cardio and strengthening and I ended with cranial OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Had my six month cleaning at the dentist. Still no cavities at 32. Trying to keep the streak going!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab: Recumbent Bike, and floor strengthening.
  • Zero doctors and zero physical therapy (my therapist is away right now).
  • I am officially scheduled to see Dr. Lavallee in July! It will be my first time seeing him since he moved from South Bend to York, PA. The road trip will be a lot but I am confident it will be worth it. That man is one of my heroes.
