1. Medical Stuff:

  • Spring break catch up on doctor’s.
  • Thursday we went to Toledo to see Dr. Grubb for my yearly appointment. I am doing well, and only have to take my Propranalol and Midodrine as needed now. Thank you, body. I will take it. I will continue my saline infusions regularly, and take my meds on bad days. I’ve come a long way since when I started in 2010…in a wheelchair. Grateful.
  • I got my stitches out from my cyst removal.
  • Got some lab work done I was putting off.
  • Refilled tons of meds.
  • Scheduled weekly acupuncture for the next month. I’m excited!
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Cardio outside in the SNOW, strengthening exercises inside in the WARMTH.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • It was one of those EDS weeks where my body felt like with one wrong move, it would crumble…but I made it through with a lot of heating pad action.
  • 1 Day of PT. I added some arm exercises and am wondering if it is flaring up my neck. Blah.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill intervals and strengthening.
  • 1 needed OMM appointment. LOTS of cranial and rib work.
  • It was back to Toledo on Thursday to see Dr. Grubb and (mostly Bev) or my 6 months POTS check up. It went well; pretty much a maintenance appointment for meds, hydration infusions, and an order for an echo. It was awesome to have Bev back after she had been out for a while with her own medical issues. AND I was seen in RECORD time. My appointment was at 1:30 and I was done by 3:00. That NEVER happens.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. My feet keep going numb on the elliptical (sigh) so I am switching my cardio to a combination of biking and the treadmill. So far it’s much better.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Trying to incorporate more core. I need to get back on the Pilates reformer!
  • 6 month dental cleaning. 35 and still no cavities!
  • Good nap week. YESSSSS.
