Five For Friday + 1…6/11/11

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Late again.  I am noticing a pattern.  If I have a crazy week, then by Friday night I have about one spoon left which I need to use to get ready for bed instead of blogging.  Last night I was also covered in Vick’s Vapor Rub from head to toe and had to do a couple of nebulizer treatments to get my asthma under control.  I am really, REALLY trying to dodge a trip to urgent care.  Anyways, here are my “five + 1” for this week….

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab
  • Had another appointment with Larry to help with some of the rib and neck pain I have had lately.  He did some GENTLE manipulations.  No assignment is due until my July appointment.
  • Awesome appointment with Dr. Rosen.  Theme:  Evolving. 

A Grateful Letter

Dear Angels Who Watch Over Me,

I just want to say thank you for protecting me this morning when I was hit by an armed bank robber going 100 MPH during a high speed police chase.  I was a little freaked out when I counted 26 police cars whiz by me as I drove to a doctors appointment, and you must have known.  You guided me safely into the right lane where I stopped as more police cars sped past me. 

Five For Friday 6/3/11

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab
  • Prolotherapy round 5 was on Tuesday on my left hip, lower back/rib area, upper back, and neck.
  • I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Grubb for July 11.  When I saw Beverly, his NP, in April for POTS, she told me to call at the beginning of June to make a follow-up appointment with Dr. Grubb. Since I was told he had “more than a year waiting list” when I was trying to get into him in December, I did not think it would be possible to just call in June and get into him in July.  But it was super easy.  I could have seen him July 1st if I had wanted.  I guess when you are already an established patient, it makes a world of difference.
