1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Elliptical, scap training, heat, and OMM.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. 3 Miles, strengthening exercises.
  • I saw the dermatologist. The saga of my cyst continues…I will be getting it cut out once and for all in September. The doctor said it will be painful that night, but I should be okay after that. Stitches for 10 days after. The rest of my skin looked good. No worrisome spots!
  • We had our anatomy ultrasound! It went really well. When it was time to scan under the belly button they had us look away. SOOOO, someone out there knows what we are having…but we have to wait 20ish more weeks.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT with a substitute therapist. He was awesome and brought a different perspective to my management. We worked a lot on proper breathing techniques.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill. Bike. Scaps. Legs. Biceps.
  • I am sleeping like crap. I hate these sleep strikes, but if I have learned anything, I know they do not last forever.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Recovery, recovery, recovery. NO PT, no home rehab. (I wasn’t allowed to because of the septoplasty, so just good ol’ RECOVERY.
  • Monday, I had to get my nose splints out at the hospital. Holy crapballs, those things must have been up my brain hole they were so ginormous. Good thing it went so fast…or I may have slapped my extremely nice doctor. I have so much less pressure now, which is awesome. Feels like I lost a few pounds!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I did so much better this week. 2 Days of Home rehab and 1 day of PT. Three HARD workouts. I’m trying to get my muscles back on track, and they were definitely feeling it this week ; )
  • 1 Shrink appointment.
  • I went back to the ENT about looking at my deviated septum. I got there and they STILL did not have my CT scan from my other doc, so it was pretty much a waste of time. I called and my other doc said he will be sending it for a third time. I’m not exactly sure where the miscommunication is coming from, but I’m really, really hoping the third time is the charm.
  • Had a better sleep week. Praying it continues.
