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

Whew! I am late…But you know what they say…better late than never ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I haven’t been this “normal person” sick in a long time. NO voice, cough, hard to breathe, back on breathing treatments. It kicked my butt last week! But I am glad to say I am almost back to just my weird issues now! I will say teaching Kindergarten with zero voice is interesting…to say the least.
  • One day of PT. They went easier on me since I sounded like I was a smoker for 50 years. Probably a good thing.
  • One Day of home rehab. I am SO ready to get our new treadmill delivered (after our old one croaked). I miss it!
  • One shrink appointment = 768757575784785 breaths of fresh air. We talked about healing. A Lot.
  • I saw my primary care doc and found out I need to get a benign cyst removed from the top of my head on the first day of my spring break. Fun times.

2. A Day in my Kindergarten world:

After the kids came in from lunch recess:

Child one: A boy in a white T-shirt called me a bad word. Peanut Butter Jelly face.

Child Two: oh, that kid? He goes by the name Lawnmower only on the playground. I’ll tell Lawnmower to stop for you. That’s being a gentleman, right Ms. Katie?

Sometimes I think I may be doing something right??? Maybe?

And since when do five year olds go by handles at recess?!

3. Life as a Zebra Foundation is in Grand Rapids at Calvin College this weekend at the Rare Disease Symposium! Stay tuned for more information…my zebra heart is so pumped!

4. Book recommendation: More Beautiful than Before. It’s great for healing and going through any kind of adversity. I am reading a chapter a night and highly recommend.

5. LOVE.
