Long Overdue

I am sorry I haven’t posted a lot lately. On the one hand, I am becoming stronger and stronger physically with the help of my awesome physical therapists. On the other hand, I haven’t been feeling well at all as my GI system and migraines have been acting up a LOT lately. I have digestive problems including IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) that affects my large intestine, chronic nausea (I love crystallized ginger), and GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease).

Still Swollen

It’s been two weeks now and my left ankle/foot is still swollen and painful! Luckily, x-rays showed that I didn’t break anything but this has really slowed me down.

While I will do some walking and stair climbing when I’m at PT (physical therapy), I won’t do much walking otherwise right now as it is hurts too much. L I’m very grateful that my slip and fall didn’t do any damage to my knee or serious injury to my foot/ankle. I know it could have been a LOT worse. And the PA (physician assistant) did still progress my brace to be able to bend to a max of 75° at my visit just before Thanksgiving.

Adjustments, Slips, and Spills

Tomorrow I head back to the surgeon’s office for yet another one of my bi-weekly visits. While it is a drag having to schlep up to their office and having to often wait hours to see the P.A. (Physicians Assistant) I know it is well worth it.

And I am very lucky to have such a close family friend who is just wonderful company and we often will go out for dinner or something afterwards. That really does help to make the whole experience so much better!

Product Review: Bath & Body Works Lotion

Product Review: Bath & Body Works Lotion

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I have found that I really do love the lotions that the chain Bath & Body Works (B&BW). My very favorite was the Hello Sugar! with a tantalizing scent of sweet lemon frosting. Sadly B&BW discontinued the line not long after I had discovered it. As it turned out, I was able to buy one tube of lotion and a matching lip gloss.

Luckily last year, B&BW came out with a new summer seasonal “Summer Vanilla” collection which included a Vanilla Lemon which turned out to be pretty close to the Hello Sugar! lotion that I loved but is no longer available. Since I guessed that it wouldn’t be around long, I made sure to stock up on this new scent and on several others that were significantly marked down.

Even though I find the prices at B&BW are bit too high, I still love their products. Especially IF I can combine a store sale with either an email coupon that it brings the items.

B&BW stores always have a huge amount of various bath and product products to choose from which is sure please just about everyone. I had noticed that along with the summer vanilla lemon, they had a Summer Vanilla Coconut and Summer Vanilla Berry. I remember reading that studies show that women prefer Vanilla scents, which likely explains why B&BW always has multiple Vanilla scent.

I gave B&BW a 5 out of 5 rating because I always enjoy my visits to their store. I also love that they have such a wide selection of scents to choose from. My mom did, my sister does, and I also do very much like the scent of Vanilla! I don’t know many women (or any. really) who don’t like yummy/nice smelling soaps and lotions.

My mom, sister, and I also very much like the Vanilla scents like most women throughout the world! With the holidays coming up this might be a very good gift idea (and they do have a men’s line of products as well). I also like their variety and seasonal holiday sons that show up this time of year. I don’t know many or any really women that don’t like yummy smelling lotions soaps and body products. This woman certainly will does.




It’s been a few weeks since I came home from the hospital. I am so glad that I was able to get 5 home PT (physical therapy) visits, so almost two week’s worth. The day after my last home PT session with J*, I had my outpatient PT evaluation with M* who was one of my primary physical therapists from when I went to Sports Rehab* previously.
