Happy New Year, friends!  See what happens when I don’t have to work?  Eight posts in two weeks…Tomorrow it’s back to figuring out how to balance it all…back to the grind.  I’m looking forward to seeing my kids, and hearing all about their breaks.

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • I got my HOT, new compressions stockings and socks.  It only took me a couple of months, but my “compression collection” is now complete for the year.  Thank goodness for insurance.  Those suckers are expensive.

I know, I know, I am late…My excuse is I have been in Georgia, got home yesterday, and had enough energy left to watch the Modern Family finale, and pass out on the couch.  After a full night’s sleep, I am moving slow, but back in action.

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab
  • Monthly appointment with Larry.
  • Was given a prescription for waist high compression stockings.

1.  Medical Stuff: 

  • 1 day of PT: More circuit work, more pelvic clocks, and I graduated to the full foam roller for back stabilization marches!  Woot! Woot!
  • 2 days of home rehab.
  • I had my tri-weekly Dr. Rosen appointment.  The quote of our session (which should be the quote for my life) was, “All you need to worry about is making today right.” ~Dr. L. Rosen.  I also followed Larry’s instructions and showed Dr. Rosen my Apollo 13 poster.  He gave me another A+, and thought it was a genius exercise for me to do.  Gotta love the team approach when it comes to my docs. 
  • It’s been a week of increasing my Propranalol.  I haven’t felt a huge difference, but hopefully when I add Midodrine to the mix next week, I will feel better.
