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!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Infusion.
  • 1 acupuncture session. Slept so hard my doc had to shake me.
  • LOTS of great, LONG naps. Like long as in accidentally slept through dinner twice.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. No PT.
  • Now, that it’s summer, it is time to kick my exercise into a much higher gear. I’ve been pretty lazy lately and I feel it.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of OMM on the good ol’ neck and jaw. Light strengthening. Stim.
  • Walked in the neighborhood 5 out of seven days.
  • Infusion on Thursday. Probably the fastest one I ever had.
  • Acupuncture on Wednesday. First time I did not fall asleep.
  • More blood work. How do I have any left?!

March Madness continues! And I am not talking about basketball. We just have so much going on this month.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had to take Monday off for a specialist appointment.
  • This upcoming week, the treadmill should FINALLY be arriving. I miss it. Didn’t think I would this much.
  • 2 Home Rehab sessions: One, outside hitting the pavement and one Beachbody workout that left my legs feeling like straight up  JELLO.
  • Had to take PT off this week because of Kindergarten Round Up.
  • I had my two year eye checkup on Thursday. Picked out some new glasses, and had to have the whole gamut of testing. Why, you ask? Oh, EDS, you can effect everything. I had one test that pointed to Glaucoma (which can be because of EDS). I had a more advanced test, that turned out okay, but we will be watching it closely from here on out. Never dull ; )
