1. Medical Stuff:

  • Infusion on Wednesday.
  • PT on Thursday.
  • 3 Home Workouts. 21 Day Fix, and treadmill and bike.
  • I LOVE Shakeology. I have found something with having gastroparesis that fills me up, gives me so many nutrients, and is gentle on my gut. Let me say it again, louder I LOVE IT.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had two doctor’s appointments scheduled, but ended up canceling. My body needed me to clear my schedule to get used to school, and I am so glad that I did. I’m making a mental note about this for next September.
  • One Labor Day Infusion. I spent my infusion writing! See below!
  • My body is struggling. That is just honest…and normal. September is my hardest month as I adjust back to school. So if you don’t hear from me much, you know why.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 OMT Appointment.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Day of PT. So much sweat!
  • I finally had the septoplasty (my deviated septum was corrected) on Wednesday. After a year of various tests and discussing it, I pulled the trigger and went for it.
  • Lots of fun recovery time for my nose. The first few days were no picnic, but life is getting much better day by day.

Holy MOLY, this was a crazy week. But I’m still standing…Barely.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Not proud of this, but this was one of those weeks where I had so much other stuff going on that I had to cancel PT and miss one day of Home Rehab just to survive/nap/rest instead. Blah.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Lots of cardio and scap strengthening.
  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. It is always the days I think I don’t need him, when I realize I need him the most.
  • I am sleeping like crap. Too much going on.
