Five For Friday 6/1/18

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

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 Day of PT with a very stuck thoracic! We got it moving thankfully. Still did cardio and exercises.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Running and exercises. My foam roller was my bestie afterwards.
  • I had an infusion on Thursday. A big shout out to Chris who works at the hospital for always pretending I’m at the spa. He brings me drinks, food on fancy dishes, and warm pillows and blankets that he uses to “tuck in my piggies.” The people who work at the Sparrow Cancer Center are the best!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I did a number on my lower back, so there was no “physical” part in my physical therapy that day. Thank goodness for a good PT, some good manipulative medicine, electrical stim, and heat. I could sit down again without almost crying.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Core de Force and Treadmill/recumbent bike. Light weights and floor strengthening.
  • No doctors.
