Five For Friday 8/23/18

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.

Oh, summer you are going far too fast…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Last infusion! (I don’t mean my hydration ones…I’m a lifer for those).
  • PT. Changed it up. Elliptical instead of treadmill. Neck manipulation instead of rib manipulation.
  • Acupuncture.
  • OMM appointment. It had been since February. That’s pretty encouraging, but I needed to get back.

1. Medical Stuff: A week full of appointments!

  • Infusion.
  • Acupuncture.
  • Gynecologist.
  • PT. My PT worked her magic on my ribs. When I left, they were SO much better.
  • Lab work.
  • Sat in my OMT doc’s office for 45 minutes until I realized my appointment is next week.
  • 3 Days of Home rehab! I kicked a$$ this week on exercising. Must keep truckin’!

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.
