Oh, summer you are going far too fast…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Last infusion! (I don’t mean my hydration ones…I’m a lifer for those).
  • PT. Changed it up. Elliptical instead of treadmill. Neck manipulation instead of rib manipulation.
  • Acupuncture.
  • OMM appointment. It had been since February. That’s pretty encouraging, but I needed to get back.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Alternated the elliptical with the recumbent bike to get to 40 minutes of cardio. After cardio, scap strengthening and balance training. I ended with OMM on my neck, jaw, and upper ribs.
  • I had an OMM appointment today. Because my jaw, neck and rib pain is still sticking around, we tried OMM with trigger point injections. The hope is the injections will interrupt the pain cycle. Fingers crossed.

Short and sweet…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Trying to come out of my neck flare. Extra stim, heat, and OMM. My jaw is still an unhappy camper. Sigh.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Less intense. No upper body weights. Trying to calm things down.
  • Infusion on Wednesday. It always amazes me how my body sucks up the fluids like it’s starving for them. And my nurse is always amazed that I never have to pee. I guess that’s why I need them.
