1. Medical Stuff:

  • Tuesday PT. It’s getting harder. One foot in front of the other. Had 20 mins of wonderful heat and stim on my neck.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. 3 miles and light strengthening. Hoping I can do this until January…
  • One more Lovenox shot and I am done for the rest of this pregnancy. I always freak out when I go off a med that the baby has been used to since the beginning. Praying.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, scap training, heat, and OMM.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. 3 Miles, strengthening exercises.
  • I saw the dermatologist. The saga of my cyst continues…I will be getting it cut out once and for all in September. The doctor said it will be painful that night, but I should be okay after that. Stitches for 10 days after. The rest of my skin looked good. No worrisome spots!
  • We had our anatomy ultrasound! It went really well. When it was time to scan under the belly button they had us look away. SOOOO, someone out there knows what we are having…but we have to wait 20ish more weeks.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I’ve been on the Ketogenic diet for two weeks now. Days, 7, 8, 9 were awful, but it has gotten better. I learned the trick of drinking broth before bed, and it has made life much better. That tells me electrolytes/salt were low and I must keep them up or I will feel like CRAP.
  • One OMM appointment. We focused a lot on putting my upper ribs back in place. Damn ribs, work with us.
  • One Day of Home Rehab. FAIL.
  • Back to PT next week.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Cardio. Since my left trap was super sore, we skipped strengthening and I did stim and heat on that area before my PT worked on me.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. The usual.
  • I had two different OMM appointments; one on Tuesday, and one on Friday. Both docs did cranial, and worked on my TMJ and neck pain. On Friday, I got two trigger point injections which has helped quite a bit so far to interrupt the flare. Knock on wood!

September! And you know what that means…this girl goes back to work!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I worked HARD. Last PT before I have to start going from school again.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 infusion. 2 bags of fluid. I like to call it my “back to school boost.”
