Today the blood pressure is down some today...it has been running between 160 and 140. Right now Raf just took it, and it's 152/85. I'll wait and take my regular Toprol at 8:30, and tomorrow I'll take my second Lotrel. I have taken 3 Clonidine today.
Here is some information our new doctor, who has been an emergency room doctor for several years, told us. When you take your blood pressure, either at home or in a store, do it three times. Throw out the first one and average the second two. The first one is nearly always wrong.
So, today I tried to chill...I am not good at that! Also, I am not patient, at all. I'm driving Raf up the wall, and he is being so good to me. I did go with him down toward Stephenville to meet John half way to take him one of his last two textbooks. The other should be here tomorrow, so we will either meet him again, or, if I am feeling better than today, we will go all the way down...42 miles...and take him out to eat. Even as a college junior, I think he doesn't eat as well as he might. He still has a 3.8 grade point...we are sooooo proud of him. He is an office of his high power rifle team...they shoot against the military and are the only such collegiate team in the country.
I am still drawing, just not scanning. I'll scan them all at once.
In a few minutes we are going to watch The Devil Wears Prada on pay per view. Many something funny will help.
Oh, Teri Casper of Tucson recommended The Artist's Muse by Betsy Dillard Stroud. It came today and looks wonderful. I'll tell you more later!!
I want to thank all of you for your prayers, love, hugs, good thoughts. You, my friends, are so good to me. Thank you...and ((((HUGS)))) and XOXOXO to you all.
