I'm still here. I'll be having my procedure done Monday and we'll see what secret weapons the gastro doctor has for my stomach. After that, I'm thinking of making an appointment with Cliff's cardiologist on my own, unless my blood pressure settles down. I've had a harmless heart murmur for years, and an irregular heartbeat for a couple of years; they haven't worried about it so far, they just keep track of it. Now that my blood pressure went so high for days, I'm thinking if my doctor doesn't send me to a cardiologist, I'll send myself. I hate to do that, because I'm afraid I'll have to start taking blood thinners; but if that's what needs to be done, so be it.
However, I just took my blood pressure and it was actually normal. So maybe the amlodipine will do the job; it's what my mother took for years. I haven't had any of the other symptoms associated with heart problems such as shortness of breath or chest pain. One day at a time.
We have had some crazy weather this week, as many across the country have. Three inches of snow that was mostly gone by noon, two nights of freezing. Yesterday was cool but sunny, and I went out with Gabe and walked around a bit. He misses our walks, and I do too, but since I have been getting light-headed every once in awhile, I didn't want to get too far from the house; I took my phone with me, just in case. The sunshine was therapeutic. Alas, there's no sunshine today, but the weekend looks as if it will be nice.
That's about all I have, unless you want reviews of things I've watched on Netflix. I'm joking, but I have watched a lot of television, something I don't usually do in the daytime. I didn't really feel like reading, which I much prefer to do when I'm feeling fine.
That's how things are going at my house.
