1. Medical Stuff:

  • Still fighting insurance. Still paying out of pocket for PT. My doctor wrote me an amazing letter advocating for me. We will see, but rest assured, I am not backing down for anything.
  • I had an infusion. Two bags of fluid. I finally remembered to bring my blanket and it made those three hours so. much. better.
  • One session of PT. Body was a mess after three weeks away. Thank God for manual medicine.
  • I began Morning Meltdown. I committed to 100 workouts. I look pretty ridiculous because I do it in my sports bra, underwear, tennis shoes, neck, and back brace in my basement. I figure sweat is sweat, right?! There’s no wrong way to get it done.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One day of PT. Feeling stronger each session. I wish the scale would reflect that…trying to give myself patience and grace that my body grew a human and it will take time to get back to my “old” body, but some days it’s super hard.

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:

  • Dentist appointment. While I am on leave, I will lose so my dental, so I wanted to get in before. No cavities…just need to floss a bit better.
  • 8 miles walked in the neighborhood this week.
  • 34 week OB appointment! Everything checked out well. In the words of my doc, “You get a bronze medal if you make it to 28 weeks, a silver for 32, and a gold for 34. Now, we just twiddle our thumbs and wait.” EEK.
  • Shrink appointment. Needed.
