1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT! Lots of rib manipulation work. At this point, we are trying to get me to labor with my ribs as “in” as they can be. My left side just happens to be the stubborn side…
  • I had my first baby stress test on Wednesday, along with an ultrasound to check my fluid, and an OB visit at the end. Everything was good! During the baby stress test, the nurse called our kid a “loud, wild child.” At my ultrasound after, the tech said your kid is “very, VERY active” (with wide eyes). That night, my big sister, Kristen, reminded me all about the laws of Karma…
  • 4 neighborhood walks. Still truckin along slowly with my sister’s pitbull in my ‘hood ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One Day of PT. No exercise. Just OMT and LOTS of heat and stim to get me travel ready because of my angry, spasming ribs.
  • One MASSAGE to calm down my angry, spasming ribs.
  • One appointment with my OMT doc to work on my angry, spasming ribs. Are you seeing a pattern, here?

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • One emergency trip to the eye doc. Still trying to figure out what’s going on. We have ruled out that it is not just inflammation in my body since the steroid drops did not work. So everything is still pointing to an infection that will not go away. I am starting new antibiotic drops tonight. Lucky drops #4?! Let’s hope.
  • 1 cancelled PT appointment because I had to go to the eye doc instead. Sigh.
