I’m way late…It’s Christmas week…I’ve been with family which means zero regrets…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 37 Week Check. No signs I’m going anytime soon. Once again, we have an active one! This time, the word, “twirling” was used.
  • I’ve been doing a lot of liquids lately because my belly just feels like it cannot fit one more thing…sucks because of all of the holiday goodies, but I’d rather be somewhat comfortable than feel like my insides are gonna burst.
  • No other appointments.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Infusion on Wednesday.
  • PT on Thursday.
  • 3 Home Workouts. 21 Day Fix, and treadmill and bike.
  • I LOVE Shakeology. I have found something with having gastroparesis that fills me up, gives me so many nutrients, and is gentle on my gut. Let me say it again, louder I LOVE IT.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I am celebrating by pretending my Miralax/Gatorade mixture is a Margarita! Oh, EDS, you are so fun sometimes!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. The usual.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. The usual.
  • Still navigating our new insurance. It feels like a full time job at times. Ugh.
  • I saw my OMT doc. My ribs and head needed much love. Our goal was to get me headache free before I left. I did feel better so I took that as a win.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Great cardio session!
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • My stomach is working again. It seems that the bad Gastroparesis flare has passed for now. Fingers crossed it continues to stay away!
  • Bad insomnia week…I feel like a zombie! TGIF!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. More core stability exercises, and a lot of OMM on my gut to try and help with my lingering gastroparesis flare.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill and strengthening.
  • I resorted to eating smoothies, soup, yogurt, and more liquid-y fun foods this week since my gastroparesis decided to act up and stick around. I miss FOOD!
  • I saw Larry on Thursday. I had my first cupping experience and I’m not sure about it yet…It felt strange…I’d like to try it again on my back. We did it on my stomach while I had acupuncture needles in my legs…Larry worked on me afterwards and tried to get my thoracic area all put back together. My ribs and stomach are angry right now, but luckily he was able to give me a bit of relief.
