1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • This was a struggle week with my ribs and pain. I got into the doctor as an “emergency” on Friday because I was in so much pain from my ribs being subluxed. After a lot of manipulation, 4 trigger point injections, ear acupuncture, and having to do a colon cleanse because my gastroparesis had flared, it was decided it was best I rest for the weekend. This meant no Life as a Zebra Foundation, “Team Zebra” 5k the next day…I cried and then moved on into acceptance mode. I knew in my heart that this was an instance when I needed to listen to the docs who were trying to help me!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I went in the morning since we had the day off for President’s Day. All I have to say is morning PT is a lot easier for me than afternoon PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I went back to the eye doctor for a prescription check since my new reading glasses have been making me sick. Right away, my doc said it was different. I remember my first appointment when I got the initial prescription. I was having a really sick POTSy day and I was barely sleeping. I am willing to bet that that had something to do with it.

Happy New Year, Zebra family!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I am starting to need more manipulation on my ribs and neck, so I am thinking that that is a sign that it’s time for me to schedule another prolotherapy appointment.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • I know it’s technically not the flu, but after Christmas, I ended up getting the stomach flu. Along with my Mom, Allie, and Brad. I am just starting to be able to look at food again.
  • On a positive note, I have been enjoying sleeping more and sleeping in the last couple of weeks!

Happy August, friends! I have to admit, my reaction to August is always mixed; I know there is still more fun and relaxation to be had, but I also know that life will soon go back to the “fast” pace that is often hard for me as a zebra at the end of the month…Sooooo, I am working hard on living in the moment, and not projecting.  Easier said than done, but I am trying!

For the foundation, Gympalooza is coming up on August 23rd! You can check out the FREE event here:

Anyways,

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. The usual drill. Lots of cardio and strengthening and I ended with cranial OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Had my six month cleaning at the dentist. Still no cavities at 32. Trying to keep the streak going!
