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

1.  Medical Stuff:
I had two sessions of PT.  
Bought special gloves to use to help put on my compression stockings.
A lot of exercises were done at home.
I rescheduled and rescheduled again prolotherapy for Monday.
I had blood work to test my potassium since Florinef can deplete potassium.  My potassium was normal but my glucose was low.

2.  Blizzard!  We got a foot of snow and Brad had 2 snow days.  I promised Allie pictures so here you go Al.  They’re not great but you get the idea.

3.  My Mom, Dad, Brad and I went to Ann Arbor Saturday to cheer on the University of Maryland Gymnastics team against U of M, Kent State, and the University of Chicago-Illinois.  The Terps looked great.  The best part of the night was being able to finally thank Brett (the head coach) in person for everything he did for my family when Allie was in the hospital for 46 days.  Talk about emotional.  I also had the chance to talk to the whole team after the meet and thank them for their outpouring of support they have shown me the past few months.  The Terp family is amazing.

4.  Snow Day Fun:

Brad taught me how to play Mancala during blizzard day.  I got hooked fast.  Of course Brad had to beat me many times but it was something to do that was different and fun while we were snowed in. 
I organized our linen closet, which was desperately in need of some TLC.
I watched MSU get demolished by Iowa.  So sad.
5My CDs of the week that kept me company were: I and Love and You by the Avett Brothers and Sigh No More by Mumford and Sons.
Every time this song came on by Mumford and Sons it sent chills up my spine as I thought about the three Holt teens who were killed last weekend in a car accident that involved drunk driving.  I can’t even imagine.  My thoughts and prayers are with their friends and families.
