1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had ZERO appointments this week. NONE. Not gonna lie, it was glorious…not getting used to it, but I cannot remember the last time that happened.
  • 2 days of half assed Home Rehab. Must. Do. Better. Gotta dig deep these days to find my energy.

Last day of August! Is it me or does it feel like August was 67 days long?!

Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. They worked me so HARD. I finally had to speak up and say enough because I knew I still needed to drive home. That does not happen very often.
  • Sucked at home rehab this week. I slept through my usual times most days. Such a tired week.
  • Sunday, I was in urgent care with most of Lansing. Had a pedicure Saturday…woke up to the start of an infected toe on Sunday. Sooo, off I went. I was given topical antibiotic cream since pregnancy frowns on most antibiotics and the ones I could take, I am allergic to. I am happy to report that it is WAY better now, thank goodness.

I’ve been on vacation…sweet, sweet vacation, so here is my up north version…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • NO appointments. First time all summer.
  • I joined a gym in Suttons Bay for the week to get my rehab done. I went three days, and each day completed 45 minutes of cardio, 15 minutes of strengthening, and 5 minutes of stretching. I was planning on going our last morning there, but my brother in law made everyone a huge breakfast that morning so the food won out…obvi.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. We have a working treadmill! I hear about so many peeps who hate treadmills, but I love that thing with my whole EDS heart.
  • 1 Day of PT. My left first rib is so messed up, I could barely exercise. Gah. My PT tried his best to work it back into place, and we did stim and heat, but I am wearing my collar as we speak, to try to get it to continue to calm down. My ribs and me. A constant battle. That shall be my book title one day.
  • I had my first acupuncture appointment with Dr. Tan. I fell asleep! I think that is a good sign…I’m going back Thursday, and am going to try weekly for a while.
