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.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, scap training, heat, and OMM.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. 3 Miles, strengthening exercises.
  • I saw the dermatologist. The saga of my cyst continues…I will be getting it cut out once and for all in September. The doctor said it will be painful that night, but I should be okay after that. Stitches for 10 days after. The rest of my skin looked good. No worrisome spots!
  • We had our anatomy ultrasound! It went really well. When it was time to scan under the belly button they had us look away. SOOOO, someone out there knows what we are having…but we have to wait 20ish more weeks.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can actually talk about ultrasounds! Because I am high risk in four areas, I get to see the babe often…I guess that is a plus of being a GERIATRIC pregnant woman…;) Monday, I had an US and baby was not having it. It was in the same mood I wanted to feel…curled up in a ball, sleeping, with an arm over the head so it didn’t have to acknowledge the “paparazzi.” Everything looked and measured good! I am getting to the halfway point!
  • I had to go to my PCP to get my annual accommodation letter for my school district. Easy peasy.
  • I am being referred to a dermatologist because I have a cyst that won’t leave. My PCP has tried twice to remove it and it keeps returning, so now it is time for the big guns. Fun. Times.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Sucked at rehab this week. Packing up my classroom zapped me. Must do better!
  • 6 month dental cleaning. No cavities!
  • Acupuncture and infusion. The usual.
  • I established with a new rheumatologist on Wednesday. My PCP is leaving and I need someone to act as a “gatekeeper” for my EDS. Went really well!
