Five For Friday 8/2/18

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

I’ve been on vacation…sweet, sweet vacation, so here is my up north version…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • NO appointments. First time all summer.
  • I joined a gym in Suttons Bay for the week to get my rehab done. I went three days, and each day completed 45 minutes of cardio, 15 minutes of strengthening, and 5 minutes of stretching. I was planning on going our last morning there, but my brother in law made everyone a huge breakfast that morning so the food won out…obvi.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Pretty much the same kind of week: Home Rehab, acupuncture, infusion.
  • Had A LOT of labs drawn. Everything looks good.
  • Had my cyst removed from my head…AGAIN. It missed me so much, it came back after having it removed in March. One stitch and it’s healing nicely. Hoping this second time is the charm. I want my flat head back ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One day of PT. Light walking and bike. Circuit training and OMM.
  • 3 Days of walking the neighborhood with my sisters’s dog, Gru. Floor strengthening and light weights exercises after each walk. A good change up from my usual home rehab.
  • I had a cyst (I’ve had for about five months) removed from the top of my head on Thursday. Always something…Two stitches, some soreness, but my head is flat again ; ) I sure know how to kick off spring break off right! Stitches out on Monday!
  • Insomnia and weird dreams galore. Sigh.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Day of PT.
  • I wore a light up, Christmas unicorn sweater to school and it made my neck break out in hives…and the hives lasted for five days…and then I said, “Only me.” The end.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Wednesday. I am really trying to take two weeks off from everything over break so I have been trying to get in my appointments before vacay. Fingers crossed my body holds up and it is a good idea, and not one I regret.
  • The exhaustion and fatigue are REAL this time of year. So is the excitement…and unfortunately, those two don’t go very well together. I’m trying.

Here goes, Five for Friday: Vacation Edition…My favorite week of the year!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • No docs! No PT!
  • Andy and I found a teeny-tiny gym on vacay and we went three times. I had three very different, very hard workouts, and a lot of whiffs of Subway while I was there. It was right next store, and every time someone went in, Subway sandwiches was all I could smell…Not my favorite smell while working out, but I lived through it. ; )
