Five For Friday 3/8/19

1.Medical Stuff:

  • I had my 6 week postpartum appointment on Monday. Everything went well…I cleared for exercise. However, I left out the part that I’ve been exercising the last couple of weeks. Oops…did not know I had to wait for the green light.
  • PT on Tuesday. An hour of exercise, a half hour of manual medicine, and 15 minutes of heat and electrical stim. I’ve missed the stim.
  • One two mile walk with a pitbull. IN SUNSHINE.
  • One Day of Home Rehab…better…still need to add 1-2 more days.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I made my return to PT after six weeks! My joints were a bit of a mess after labor and the break, so I was in desperate need of manual medicine.  I exercised for an hour as well…After the treadmill, I said to myself, “But did you die?” I did not, so I’d call the first day of my comeback a win ; )
  • Now, how do I find time for the other days of home rehab? My next goal…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I picked up my new glasses. Bad news…they are still making me sick. What the heck?! I have never had this problem before. I will be making a call on Monday.
  • I had my 6 month dental cleaning. 33 and still no cavities!
  • I went to U of M on Tuesday to see my GI doc who specializes in Gastroparesis. I am managing fairly well, so he rewrote my Domperidone script (I only take it for flares), and we discussed going Gluten Free for a month to see how I feel. He busted out laughing when I blurted, “BUT I’M ITALIAN.” We talked about how it really is not that daunting, and we both came to the conclusion that it would be worth a month of trying.
  • Stupid, stupid, POTS induced insomnia. I don’t have time for no sleep!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I went in the morning since we had the day off for President’s Day. All I have to say is morning PT is a lot easier for me than afternoon PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I went back to the eye doctor for a prescription check since my new reading glasses have been making me sick. Right away, my doc said it was different. I remember my first appointment when I got the initial prescription. I was having a really sick POTSy day and I was barely sleeping. I am willing to bet that that had something to do with it.
