Band Together

The clinical team gave both Nathan and I the new “orbit” band, with website access for a year.

His is the public one being released this month, and mine has extra beta programs for medical monitoring.

How cool is that?

It constantly monitors my heart rate, oxygen, temperature, and all kinds of things, as well as our activity levels, sleep quality, and exercise.

Besides that, it syncs with both the apps we use for nutrition and exercise, so ultimately it gives a very detailed report.

It is both amazing and creepy.

Especially when it vibrates because we have been too inactive for too long at once, or if I am doing too much and am supposed to go sit down, or when it is time for medicine or food.

Oh! And they can send me messages on it, and it vibrates so I know to look, then the message scrolls across.

How crazy is that?

I can’t wait to try it out as I start being able to do more things physically, and spent tonight getting comfortable with it on all the time now.

So wild, all this technology!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
