Five For Friday 6/7/19 & 6/14/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of PT. I added an SI belt to my repertoire of braces. We had a good laugh over the fact that I am doing a 5k and I may just show up in my back brace, SI belt, and neck collar. You gotta laugh, peeps.
  • One shrink appointment.
  • Sciatic pain is no joke. Working on it, but I have a feeling I also need prolotherapy in that area. To Indiana, I go…ASAP.

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?!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. As hard it was, I admitted to my PT I needed to take it easy. I could tell it was one of those days that if I pushed, I would be in trouble. So we did more OMM, more heat, and more stim.
  • Every night this week, Brad and I walked a mile and a half. It was our goal at the beginning of the week and we did it. Spring weather just makes life so much easier.
  • Blood draw. All good.
  • Home Infusion. Ceiling fan…hanger…bag of meds…All good.
  • Saw my shrink on Thursday. This is a year I have felt pretty broken. He is the most amazing man in helping me figure out the pieces, and understand which ones I want to pick up and put back together.
