Five For Friday 10/13/17

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Friday the 13th!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. A lot of rib OMM and cranial work after cardio and strengthening.
  • I’ve been doing various Beachbody exercise programs and I like the variety. I am figuring out how to modify as I go. So far, I have done 21 Day Fix Cardio, 21 Day Fix Pilates, and PiYO Sweat.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had a procedure done yesterday where I had to be put under. It went well. I am just SORE today, but will be back in action soon. Meanwhile I am getting in some good sleep and a lot of one-on-one time with my heating pad. HOT.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • It was one of those EDS weeks where my body felt like with one wrong move, it would crumble…but I made it through with a lot of heating pad action.
  • 1 Day of PT. I added some arm exercises and am wondering if it is flaring up my neck. Blah.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill intervals and strengthening.
  • 1 needed OMM appointment. LOTS of cranial and rib work.
  • It was back to Toledo on Thursday to see Dr. Grubb and (mostly Bev) or my 6 months POTS check up. It went well; pretty much a maintenance appointment for meds, hydration infusions, and an order for an echo. It was awesome to have Bev back after she had been out for a while with her own medical issues. AND I was seen in RECORD time. My appointment was at 1:30 and I was done by 3:00. That NEVER happens.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I felt SO much better this week. Thank you, antibiotics!
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, Recumbent Bike, and floor strengthening exercises.
  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, treadmill, and many foam roll exercises.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. My ribs were a mess, but were finally behaving once Larry worked on me…Sometimes I think my ribs really hate me : )
