This weekend was one for relaxation and catching up. Although it ended up being more relaxing then being productive but I think it was LONG overdue! Saturday I was up early - because it's hard to sleep in with the pups (and I just have problems sleeping in). I had an 11:20 am appointment at Sloan's Integrative Medicine Center for acupuncture. Below you can see a lovely picture of some needles stuck in my head (please don't make fun of it! lol!)! I always get asked if it hurts - well... it is getting needles stuck in you! It hurts a little! The worst is the ones they stick in the ears. Actually this time I realized afterwards that one of the ear ones bleed. No fun!
When asked what I wanted to concentrate on for this appointment - I said 'can you do something about all this stress and tension in my shoulders/neck?'. The answer of course was YES! Which is why I got the extra needles stuck in my neck! Then you just chill for awhile and relax.
After my appointment I debated whether I should utilize my zoo pass for a quick trip thru central park zoo, but decided lunch and heading home to relax was needed instead. You'll see a few pictures below from around City Hall Park near the Brooklyn Bridge.
Tomorrow is treatment #8! I got a late Friday evening call (always makes me nervous when I see Sloan's # pop up on my phone around 7pm on a Friday night). They called to let me know that they were changing what doctor I was seeing on Monday. So continues my revolving door of doctors :/ I know they are all great, but it frustrates me. I have lots of questions to ask about the trial but not sure who's the right doctor to ask?
So stay tuned! Busy week ahead again. Monday treatment, Tuesday-Thursday busy schedule at work but then off to the fabulous state of Colorado for a long weekend of rafting, hiking, horseback riding, etc! It's been in the works for awhile now!
Have a great week!
