Happy Tuesday! How are all my wonderful Sparkfriends doing this fine day?
I hope everyone had a great weekend! My DH played golf Saturday morning and I visited with my parents and ran some errands. When he got back he took me to see Oceans 8 and we were supposed to go out for dinner.
e fell asleep during the movie and wasn't feeling so great after the movie to go eat. What a bust! Oh well. These things happen.
I had an interesting day yesterday. My doctor's office called and wanted me to come in for a blood pressure check. Whaaa???? Last month when I had all this sickness going on which I later found out to be pneumonia, asthma, and allergies, I finally went to the doctor about two weeks in. The nurse noticed my blood pressure was high. It was actually higher than I've ever known it to be. It was 156/102. She asked if I'd been in a hurry to get there or was I rushing around? Yes. She then asked if I had been taking a lot of over-the-counter meds? Ummm, yeah! So she said it could've been from that. Nothing else was said. The doctor didn't even mention it. About a week later we had a health fair at work and they took my blood pressure. It was 148/99. I told them I had seen my doctor the week prior and nothing was really said. It was attributed to possibly taking a lot of over-the-counter meds. He then told me anything can mess with your blood pressure, including meds, being sick, not eating, eating, etc. Okay, no biggie. So this phone call from the doctor's office was kind of a surprise. I went after work yesterday and they checked it...twice. It was 146/98 the first time taken and the last time it was 144/94. Hey, it went down! lol Unfortunately my doctor is now wanting to put me on a low dose blood pressure med for a month to 6 weeks and see what happens. I gave in, but I'm having mixed feelings. I feel like I'm getting older, which of course I am, but having to start a regimen of prescription meds? I just don't like it. But I know until I get all of this weight under control, that is what will have to be. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise because it will make me kick my butt in gear! lol
And sometimes I think we all need that kick!
Maybe I should pet my cat more....if only she would let me! lol
Everyone have a happy, healthy Tuesday!
