Five For Friday 2/22/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I made my return to PT after six weeks! My joints were a bit of a mess after labor and the break, so I was in desperate need of manual medicine.  I exercised for an hour as well…After the treadmill, I said to myself, “But did you die?” I did not, so I’d call the first day of my comeback a win ; )
  • Now, how do I find time for the other days of home rehab? My next goal…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • My latest EDS Fun: JAW. FLARE. It keeps dislocating on the left side. I’ve been living on my heating pad. Fun times.
  • 4 Home workouts this week: 21 Day Fix, PIYO Sweat, 10 miles on the Recumbent Bike, Running and a lot of core. I think I may have overdid it a bit. I will be taking it easy this weekend.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. My doctor kept putting my jaw into place, and it kept popping out. She told me to take it easy to try and get it to calm down. Do you know how hard it is to try not to yawn?!?!

Five For Friday +1 3/31/12

Well, this is a record for the latest I have ever been for a “Five For Friday.”  At least I made it before Sunday.

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • I had a couple of wheelchair days.  I tried my best not to get down about it.  My Mom helped with a little tough love, as in “suck it up, it’s temporary, sit your butt down in the chair…”  When we got to the mall last Sunday, she reminded me that my wheelchair, Wilamena, gives me the freedom to do things, I would not be able to do otherwise. Thank God for my Mama.
  • 1 Day of PT. Focus~Strengthening and neck manipulation.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • Prolotherapy round 12 was yesterday.  I got about 90-some shots, but who’s counting?
