1. Medical Stuff:

  • Dentist appointment. While I am on leave, I will lose so my dental, so I wanted to get in before. No cavities…just need to floss a bit better.
  • 8 miles walked in the neighborhood this week.
  • 34 week OB appointment! Everything checked out well. In the words of my doc, “You get a bronze medal if you make it to 28 weeks, a silver for 32, and a gold for 34. Now, we just twiddle our thumbs and wait.” EEK.
  • Shrink appointment. Needed.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT on Thursday. So happy my OB said I can do electrical stim again. It helps calm down my first ribs that will not cooperate right now.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday. I made him prove that we met for an hour. It felt like 2 minutes.
  • Allie moved home last weekend and started her new job with long hours, so I’ve been walking Gru Gru each day. If only I had been doing this from the beginning of my pregnancy…it forces me to get my body moving.

Catching up…better late, than never!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I got the cyst on my head removed for the THIRD time. They had to cut deeper and I got 7 stitches. Holy headache, the next day. It was not fun, but I survived with Tylenol, ice, and a heating pad. I’ll spare you the pics since it’s super gross. My dermatologist says it should not come back so here’s hoping!
  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of cranial work because of so much head pain (see above).
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Trying to get all the cardio in I can get outside before it’s way too cold.

Last day of August! Is it me or does it feel like August was 67 days long?!

Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. They worked me so HARD. I finally had to speak up and say enough because I knew I still needed to drive home. That does not happen very often.
  • Sucked at home rehab this week. I slept through my usual times most days. Such a tired week.
  • Sunday, I was in urgent care with most of Lansing. Had a pedicure Saturday…woke up to the start of an infected toe on Sunday. Sooo, off I went. I was given topical antibiotic cream since pregnancy frowns on most antibiotics and the ones I could take, I am allergic to. I am happy to report that it is WAY better now, thank goodness.

Oh, summer you are going far too fast…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Last infusion! (I don’t mean my hydration ones…I’m a lifer for those).
  • PT. Changed it up. Elliptical instead of treadmill. Neck manipulation instead of rib manipulation.
  • Acupuncture.
  • OMM appointment. It had been since February. That’s pretty encouraging, but I needed to get back.
