1. Medical Stuff:

  • Physical therapy was cancelled.

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT in their new facility.  It’s beautiful.  I never thought I would say this, but I hope they move the torture chamber Reformer in soon.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had my monthly doctor appointment with Larry.  He did the usual OMM on me.  I may be crazy but I always notice a relationship between less POTS symptoms after gentle cranial work.  Love it.
