Five For Friday 12/8/17

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • NO PT this week so I was on my own. 3 Days of HARD Home rehab. I especially upped the intensity on the treadmill and recumbent bike, and you bet I was one sore cookie. But it felt good…and it REALLY felt good to accomplish new goals.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. I know I need some prolotherapy on my left side, for stabilization, but for right now, rehab and OMM is going to have to do until Brad and I can get to Mishawaka.

Friday the 13th!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. A lot of rib OMM and cranial work after cardio and strengthening.
  • I’ve been doing various Beachbody exercise programs and I like the variety. I am figuring out how to modify as I go. So far, I have done 21 Day Fix Cardio, 21 Day Fix Pilates, and PiYO Sweat.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had a procedure done yesterday where I had to be put under. It went well. I am just SORE today, but will be back in action soon. Meanwhile I am getting in some good sleep and a lot of one-on-one time with my heating pad. HOT.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I started my week at the eye doctor with pink eye. What the heck? My second eye infection in a month. The doctor called it “flukey.” Twelve years teaching germy kids and I’ve never had pink eye. Anyways, I’m back on the drops.
  • 1 Day of PT. Mostly cardio and rib OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, recumbent bike, balance work, small weights, and scap strengthening.
  • I saw a new primary care doc on Thursday. It has been really hard for me to find a PCP that gets my “big picture” so fingers crossed this will work out.
  • I saw my OMM doc today. She worked a lot on my left first rib, and inside my mouth on my jaw.
