Five For Friday 7/3/20

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

July! It’s been over a month. I guess it’s time for another update, quarantine style.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I am doing okay rehabbing at home. There are many days I would love to go in for OMM but I’m managing okay enough. I pray everyday that that will continue.
  • On a different note, I fell up the stairs last week and haven’t been able to put full weight on my foot since. Dance, walking, and running have been my lifelines during this pandemic so the last week has been HARD.

  1. Medical Stuff:
  • One day of PT. My hip/back pain has evolved from feeling like EDS pain to an injury pain. We are continuing to work on it with exercises, stim, heat, and OMT. To say I feel frustrated would be putting it mildly. Breathing.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. Trying to make more time for these appointments. They are so, so important for my overall health.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of home rehab and zero PT. I spent a lot of time with my new BFF, the recumbent bike in my basement.
  • 1 shrink appointment. 1 hour of perspective, reflecting, and clarifying.
  • What a weird week! Soooooo I did this by dropping a table on my foot cleaning my classroom, which took up a lot of my week with workman’s comp paperwork and all of the questions that accompany that, along with 3 doctor’s appointments. After going back and forth about whether it was broken or not, the final verdict was I have an old break on the side of my foot (which does not hurt), but I just bruised the top of my foot. I am already out of my robo boot less and less. Feeling grateful and relieved I am not stuck in it for 6 weeks like they originally thought.  Katie Boot
