Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

Five For Friday 10/28/11

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.  I just could not fit in that second day this week because of my breathing issues.  Back on the wagon next week.
  • I had my annual gyno exam.  As my doctor was leaving he said, “Well, everything looked good and checked out healthy.”  I said, “Um, that was music to my ears…can you say that one more time?” I always try to remind myself that I still have my good health.  At least my lady parts fall into that category.

Roses and Thorns

Rose:  I got to Skype my brother for a whole hour tonight.

Thorn:  I can’t shake this asthma flare, sinus pressure, and cough.  I have been taking 4 nebulizer treatments a day, sleeping propped up, and walking around stinking like Vick’s Vapor Rub and cough drops.  I’m desperately trying to avoid another doctor’s appointment and a steroid pack.
