Christmas Edition!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I sucked up the working out thing SO bad this week. My body feels it too. Way too many Christmas carbs and not enough Christmas cardio. On my way to the treadmill today. It’s not gonna be pretty. Pray. Just pray…
  • No doctors. No PT. Just eating and lazing my way through Christmas.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I did a number on my lower back, so there was no “physical” part in my physical therapy that day. Thank goodness for a good PT, some good manipulative medicine, electrical stim, and heat. I could sit down again without almost crying.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Core de Force and Treadmill/recumbent bike. Light weights and floor strengthening.
  • No doctors.

This was a long week…and I’m still standing…barely…oof.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Had my annual pulmonary appointment and breathing testing. I am all good for another year.
  • 2 Days of PT. My ribs and stomach sucked this week which is the reason for two appointments instead of one. I definitely needed more OMT. Stubborn ribs.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Running with my collar. I did okay despite my ribs.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I finished my antibiotics! I finished my prednisone! And am feeling MUCH better! Thank. GOD.
  • Back to PT. I did the elliptical and bike and a few light strengthening exercises to get my body back in the swing of things. I finished with heat, stim, and OMM.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. I was so happy I made it on the treadmill for 30 minutes without losing a lung. I’m on my way back, friends!
