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

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.  Elliptical, mat exercises, and major jaw and neck OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.  Treadmill, balance work, mat exercises, glute fires, light weights, scap fires.
  • I had prolotherapy on Wednesday.  You can read about it here.

2.  Gymnastics camp ended on Monday. A few things about the experience:

  • Doubling up on my Midodrine in the afternoon was a savior.  So was putting my feet up at lunch, and pacing myself more in the afternoon.
  • By day 3 I did not think I would it make it through. Somehow, some way, I did.
  • My love for coaching gymnastics and dance was renewed those 4 days.
  • I don’t want to hear the songs, “Troublemaker” and “Wings” for a very long time. (I still love “Blurred Lines.”)
  • When asking my Dad to record the dances, remember to tell him no fast panning.  If I posted them, you would all be struck with motion sickness!
  • The girls rocked their dances.  I was like a proud Mama bear.
  • This is after the performances.  What is amazing is that I am still standing…and smiling.

Dance Coach Team: Allie, Shelby, & me.

3.  I spent a lazy fourth of July recovering from shots, resting, sleeping, and having a BBQ with the fam and friends. A perfect R & R kinda day. I have a fun, busy week coming up with concerts, Zebra work, and the Color Run.  I need all the “spoons” I can get!

The one picture we took on the 4th to send to our brother in Texas.  We thought he'd feel at home.

4.    You know it’s been a pretty uneventful week when you find yourself posting pictures of your toes.


First pedicure of the summer. This is a major improvement from the “before.”

5.  We spent Tuesday night at a surprise birthday party for our friend Todd at their house on Narrow Lake.  Thanks for the memories, Glasscock’s, Daggett’s, & Gooley’s!
