Five For Friday 2/19/16

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Last week was rough, rough, ROUGH. This week was much better with head, neck, and jaw pain. I still don’t feel totally “right” but I do feel like I am coming out of this bad pain spell…hopefully.
  • 1 Day of PT. Since  was in more pain than usual, we laid off some of the strengthening and I did electrical stim after my cardio instead.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.

Hellooooo Spring Break! I welcome you with wide open arms!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • No PT.
  • One day of Home Rehab. Not enough rehab this week.
  • One sick day taken. My blood pressure and heart rate were not cooperating, and I felt my body shutting down. I knew I had to take a day or I would be in big trouble.

Five For Friday 3/31/13 & 4/6/13: Benefit Concert Edition

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday, Fundraisers

Oh hey there, blog. Remember me?  Sorry for the neglect…Life is crazy.  I am currently living in benefit planning land.  It’s fabulous. Interesting. Intense. A blessing. Stressful. And at times, it can be completely insane. But instead of making excuses, I’ll get right to the last couple of weeks…This will be a combined edition.  The top 10 of the last two weeks.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 sessions of Physical Therapy, with lectures on pacing, along with all of my exercises.  It is a beautiful thing when your therapist looks at you and says, “I know exactly what you need today. Sit down and listen.”
  • One trip to urgent care due to POTS, stress, exhaustion, and dehydration. (Cue the physical therapy lectures).
  • 5 Home Rehab sessions.
  • One telephone conversation with Dr. Larry about what I need to do for me to survive.
