Five For Friday 1/10/20

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Still fighting insurance. Still paying out of pocket for PT. My doctor wrote me an amazing letter advocating for me. We will see, but rest assured, I am not backing down for anything.
  • I had an infusion. Two bags of fluid. I finally remembered to bring my blanket and it made those three hours so. much. better.
  • One session of PT. Body was a mess after three weeks away. Thank God for manual medicine.
  • I began Morning Meltdown. I committed to 100 workouts. I look pretty ridiculous because I do it in my sports bra, underwear, tennis shoes, neck, and back brace in my basement. I figure sweat is sweat, right?! There’s no wrong way to get it done.

Five For Friday 7/5/19

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Prolo on Monday. Dr. C thinks things got stretched out from labor, and I have since sprained my hip and both SI joints. Prolo in the hip capsule, both SI joints, and groin.
  • 1 Day of PT. OMT only since it was the day after prolotherapy and I felt it was best to give it a chance to work.
  • Lots of time on my trusty heating pad this week.
  • 1 shrink visit. Starting to taper one of my meds. Fingers crossed.
  • 1 Infusion. Had to wait to start while they called my docs since my blood pressure was too low. They determined I was okay enough to do the infusion and thankfully did not have to go anywhere.
