Five For Friday 11/2/18

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Acupuncture on Monday. Laying on my back that long was uncomfortable. Was one of the only sessions I did not fall asleep.
  • Physical Therapy was Tuesday. I had more energy this week than I have had the last few weeks, which translated in getting a great cardio session in. It is amazing the difference in energy I have, depending if I do PT on Tuesdays vs Thursdays. By Thursday, I am running on fumes.
  • Was at the hospital most of the day Friday for a family member’s surgery. Luckily, all went well, and we will know more results by Wednesday. Prayers up!
  • Walks, walks, and more walks with my sister’s dog. It’s forcing me to get out there and move, I guess : )

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.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Alternated the elliptical with the recumbent bike to get to 40 minutes of cardio. After cardio, scap strengthening and balance training. I ended with OMM on my neck, jaw, and upper ribs.
  • I had an OMM appointment today. Because my jaw, neck and rib pain is still sticking around, we tried OMM with trigger point injections. The hope is the injections will interrupt the pain cycle. Fingers crossed.

Friday the 13th!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. A lot of rib OMM and cranial work after cardio and strengthening.
  • I’ve been doing various Beachbody exercise programs and I like the variety. I am figuring out how to modify as I go. So far, I have done 21 Day Fix Cardio, 21 Day Fix Pilates, and PiYO Sweat.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had a procedure done yesterday where I had to be put under. It went well. I am just SORE today, but will be back in action soon. Meanwhile I am getting in some good sleep and a lot of one-on-one time with my heating pad. HOT.

November! Time, slow down! Craziness!

Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. For the first time in a few weeks, I had good energy, so we went with it and I worked out HARD.
  • No Home Rehab. That was a big fail this week.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Monday. In my Halloween costume which was interesting since I went from school and totally forgot to bring clothes. It was interesting to be manipulated as Snow White.
  • I had my monthly shrink appointment. Just so grateful for that man.
  • I’m still having issues with my eyes. Right now, I am experimenting with just steroid drops (rather than antibiotic steroid drops) to see if it keeps the flare away. Sighh. My body loves medical mysteries.
  • I slept a bit better this week. I am hopeful.
