Whew! March just got here, didn’t it?! What the heck.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I worked out HARD. I love that feeling of dripping sweat.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Intervals again on the treadmill and floor strengthening.
  • I had an OMT appointment and got 3 trigger point injections. I’m finding those injections are good for interrupting the pain cycle.

Whew. This was a LONG week. I definitely overbooked myself, but at least I got a lot done. Now, I rest and recover before the holiday rush begins…and remind myself of the P word…PACING.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. They moved! The new facility is beautiful and HUGE. Looking forward to getting stronger in my new PT “home.”
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill walking on a higher incline, plus floor strengthening.
  • My acupuncture needles from last Tuesday fell out this past Tuesday. Pretty good when they stay in a full week.
  • I had my yearly gyno appointment. All the lady stuff checked out well.

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.  I just could not fit in that second day this week because of my breathing issues.  Back on the wagon next week.
  • I had my annual gyno exam.  As my doctor was leaving he said, “Well, everything looked good and checked out healthy.”  I said, “Um, that was music to my ears…can you say that one more time?” I always try to remind myself that I still have my good health.  At least my lady parts fall into that category.

1.  Medical Stuff
  • 1 Day of PT.  Had a re-eval and made a few new goals.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Had my monthly Larry appointment.  We talked a lot about future goals, while he did some gentle manipulative medicine on my neck.
  • I saw Dr. Rosen.  To be honest there was not much of a theme to this appointment.  Even though I was all over the place, I still think I sorted a few things out in my crazy, jumbled up mind.  It always helps me to be able to really talk things through.

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet with longer Christmas posts to come!

1.  I’m cheating and putting the medical posts into one:  Went to Fort Wayne and had facet injections into C6/C7 in my neck. Started physical therapy again.  My first session was focused on the soft tissue in my neck and back (aka a massage).  The plan for physical therapy is toning work with soft tissue work.  Made an appointment with my OB-GYN to talk about starting a new birth control to hopefully help the EDS by making me less stretchy during my time of the month.
