1. Medical Stuff:

  • Infusion and acupuncture. Check and check.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Ribs have still been giving me issues, but I’ve been trying to push through.
  • Too hottttttt. Way too HOT for this body. I’ve been trying not to complain, but it makes days harder for sure. So happy to wake up this morning to 60 glorious degrees. Please stick around for a while.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Back at it in PT. I spoke too soon last week. My ribs have decided to give me fits.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. AKA three miles in the neighborhood and strengthening exercises in my living room.
  • Weekly acupuncture and infusion. Sometimes managing my health seems like really hard work. This was on of those weeks.

JUNE babyyyyyyy! One more week of school, a few days of packing up the classroom, and then summer VACAY!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of walking…lots of scap strengthening.
  • 1 Infusion. I have one vein that is a CHAMP. Same vein, every week, always delivers.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Walked 4 miles in the hood. Then had a leg day once I got home.
  • 1 Acupuncture appointment. When I went in 2010, I HATED it. Since I have been going in 2018, I LOVE it. Different doctors, different techniques, different atmospheres make a huge difference.
  • Been fighting sickness. Nausea and fatigue. Ninety Five degrees has not helped. Please just get me to the end of the year!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One day of PT. Light walking and bike. Circuit training and OMM.
  • 3 Days of walking the neighborhood with my sisters’s dog, Gru. Floor strengthening and light weights exercises after each walk. A good change up from my usual home rehab.
  • I had a cyst (I’ve had for about five months) removed from the top of my head on Thursday. Always something…Two stitches, some soreness, but my head is flat again ; ) I sure know how to kick off spring break off right! Stitches out on Monday!
  • Insomnia and weird dreams galore. Sigh.
