Happy December, y’all! With the exception of summer, my favorite time of the year!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Back to PT after THREE weeks! I felt every bite of Thanksgiving on that elliptical!
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 OMM appointment for cranial work.
  • One yucky POTS flare.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Cardio. Since my left trap was super sore, we skipped strengthening and I did stim and heat on that area before my PT worked on me.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. The usual.
  • I had two different OMM appointments; one on Tuesday, and one on Friday. Both docs did cranial, and worked on my TMJ and neck pain. On Friday, I got two trigger point injections which has helped quite a bit so far to interrupt the flare. Knock on wood!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, scap fires, ultrasound, stim, heat, and OMM. The works!
  • No Home Rehab. I’ve been trying my best to rest this rib flare.
  • 1 OMM Appointment. A lot of time was spent trying to get everything back in place. GENTLY.
  • I saw Dr. Cantieri at the last minute on Monday for prolotherapy on my back and ribs. Thank god for that man for getting me in at the last minute, and thank god for my father who drove me back and forth on a whim. After 120ish shots, I’m still pretty sore, but I’m doing my best to rest and listen to doctor’s orders!

Well, I am another year older!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill and recumbent bike, with some light weights and strengthening exercises thrown in!
  • My PT was out of town this week…
  • No doctors either. Pretty quiet week. I like those : )
  • I scheduled my next Dr. Grubb appointment. I was supposed to see him in November, but I could not get in until mid-January. Actually, that’s not bad for him.
  • My body has decided this week it does not need naps. I disagree. A lot.
