Five For Friday 8/31/18

Last day of August! Is it me or does it feel like August was 67 days long?!

Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. They worked me so HARD. I finally had to speak up and say enough because I knew I still needed to drive home. That does not happen very often.
  • Sucked at home rehab this week. I slept through my usual times most days. Such a tired week.
  • Sunday, I was in urgent care with most of Lansing. Had a pedicure Saturday…woke up to the start of an infected toe on Sunday. Sooo, off I went. I was given topical antibiotic cream since pregnancy frowns on most antibiotics and the ones I could take, I am allergic to. I am happy to report that it is WAY better now, thank goodness.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Pretty much the same kind of week: Home Rehab, acupuncture, infusion.
  • Had A LOT of labs drawn. Everything looks good.
  • Had my cyst removed from my head…AGAIN. It missed me so much, it came back after having it removed in March. One stitch and it’s healing nicely. Hoping this second time is the charm. I want my flat head back ; )

JUNE babyyyyyyy! One more week of school, a few days of packing up the classroom, and then summer VACAY!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of walking…lots of scap strengthening.
  • 1 Infusion. I have one vein that is a CHAMP. Same vein, every week, always delivers.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Walked 4 miles in the hood. Then had a leg day once I got home.
  • 1 Acupuncture appointment. When I went in 2010, I HATED it. Since I have been going in 2018, I LOVE it. Different doctors, different techniques, different atmospheres make a huge difference.
  • Been fighting sickness. Nausea and fatigue. Ninety Five degrees has not helped. Please just get me to the end of the year!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Session of Acupuncture. I love my doc. Still convinced she is some kind of magical wizard. And I was a skeptic…especially because I did it before in 2010 and HATED it.
  • My first home infusion was a success. I had a nurse friend come over and start my IV. Talk about creativity. The bag of meds was connected to a wire hanger, which we hung from our kitchen ceiling fan. Worked like a charm.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. I kicked my a$$ all three times this week. Felt good.
