Five For Friday 10/11/19 & 10/18/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday, Uncategorized

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two sessions of PT. I think I’m at a point where I’m ready to increase intensity. I love the feeling of progress.
  • Two days of home rehab. I’m trying each time to beat my time on the treadmill. A bit of friendly competition with myself.
  • One shrink appointment = one deeper breath after.
  • Back to infusions! Had my first one in a while. I always marvel at how needed it must have been when I get two liters, and don’t pee for hours afterwards.
  • Flu shot!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two PT sessions. I feel like I am finally getting stronger and my lower back in general is feeling better. Just need to tackle my left sciatica and SI joint and I’ll be like brand new ; )
  • Two Home Rehabs. Light walking and strengthening. Lots of foam rolling.
  • Two Shrink appointments. I am back to weekly for the time being. It’s a good thing.
  • I had my first infusion since pre-pregnancy days. My POTS came back with a vengeance a couple of weeks ago which has forced me to put my health in the forefront.
  • One primary care appointment.

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.
