1. Medical Stuff:

  • Busy week of appointments! I saw my shrink on Tuesday. It was a long, overdue appointment. I must get back to making mental health a priority.
  • I took Wednesday off from school for my 24 week ultrasound and OB appointment. Baby J was moving and waving. I am definitely feeling baby more which is ahhhmazing. Cervix looked good, baby looked good, heart rate and measurements were good…keep doing your thing, baby.
  • Got my head stitches out on Wednesday.
  • Got my flu shot.
  • Acupuncture appointment. She puts the needles in my legs and head. As usual, I passed out and had to be woken up.
  • Struggling with more headaches, neck pain, and jaw pain. I think things may be getting looser as I grow bigger with baby. Watching this closely so I can be proactive.

Oh, summer you are going far too fast…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Last infusion! (I don’t mean my hydration ones…I’m a lifer for those).
  • PT. Changed it up. Elliptical instead of treadmill. Neck manipulation instead of rib manipulation.
  • Acupuncture.
  • OMM appointment. It had been since February. That’s pretty encouraging, but I needed to get back.

Short and sweet…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Trying to come out of my neck flare. Extra stim, heat, and OMM. My jaw is still an unhappy camper. Sigh.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Less intense. No upper body weights. Trying to calm things down.
  • Infusion on Wednesday. It always amazes me how my body sucks up the fluids like it’s starving for them. And my nurse is always amazed that I never have to pee. I guess that’s why I need them.

Holy Cow, it’s September. So long, summer. I love you.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. No PT this week.
  • First week back to school. Hence, not a lot of sleep. It was a tired one.
  • I have learned the last few years that it is best to clear my schedule the first few weeks I’m back to school in order to function and adjust…as long as I still get some workouts in on my own.
