adjustments, it's back to normal (this time it was high -- VERY high) now. I felt really, really bad while it was so high.

Hubby's condition is a roller coaster ride. Good day, then a bad day. For example, yesterday was busy for us from midmorning on till after 6 last night; today, it is noon, and he is still in bed, sleeping. Life is like that now; so, we go when he can go, and we don't when he can't. It is what it is.
We did go to see The Granddaughter (note the capital letters!) for her first birthday. It is so hard to believe that she is already a year old! She is definitely a "Southern girl" -- her first word was "Hey", but she says it in two syllables! I keep waiting for her to add "ya'll" to it! LOL
I had posted before we left for her birthday weekend that we had a surprise gift for her. The picture I have didn't turn out as clearly as I had hoped, but here she is with her very proud Papaw and Mamaw and her piano! She LOVES it! And, with her Mama and Daddy musically inclined, she will soon be able to pick out simple tunes, I think. (Oh, o.k., she's 1 yr old, but can't a grandma boast!??)
Blessings,
Diane

O dearie, please be careful with your BP. Your GD is quite a looker. I am sure that southern gal will be playing before you can blink an eye. I bet dad will be chasing all the boys away very soon. Keep on boasting Grandma. That is our privilege. My GS just turned one in June. Take care and Blessings.

Tsk Tsk Diane.... You should know better than to let your BP go... Try to keep it stable with your meds, and don't let them run out. (Course I need not be giving advise, I'm the world's worst pill taker.) Thank the Good Lord above I don't have to take meds, except for my arthritis and I hold off on that until I can't hardly move then as you know it takes longer to get in my system... Hugs, Terre

Take care of yourself, and we are all so glad that you can be on the mend. And what a precious picture of your GD and her piano, and of course, she will be playing Bethoven before you know it. LOl

Grandma, you boast all you want - this is a little sweetie - she will be playing that in no time and have so much fun doing it, too. Y'll come back now, y'hear?

First off Diane from this nurse, watch the BP. I hope you have a cuff & can keep track of it yourself at home. this is most helpful to you & your Dr. As for your darling little GD southern belle, give her time that "hey yaw'll will come. from a long line of musicians it is never too early, Caleb is only 2 but he is already using only 1 finger instead of his entire hands to bang on the keys. I'm working on CDE,CDE DCDECC. Here we go, up a row, to a birthday par-ty. LOL His dad says ballplayer I say musician. I wonder who will win. LOL *

Diane, I am so shocked that you let your blood pressure get out of control like that - please take care of yourself - that is so important - it was Rick's blood pressure that caused his stroke - take your meds and get to the doctor as soon as you feel that the meds are not working right - PLEASE!

I am thrilled that you got to visit with the GD and I know that she was so happy to have you there, too. Those little ones do bring us joy and happiness and make life worth while - don't they?

Thanks, gals! I was concerned about me, too! But, you know, nurses are the worst patients! But, I was on meds at the time, just a different prescription combo to try. Well, it is an understatement to say that it didn't work very well! But, now we have the meds adjusted and changed so that my BP and my life are both back to normal! So, life is good, again!
I do have a BP cuff and check my BP often; thanks to both of you for caring about this curly headed woman!
Blessings,
Diane

OH Diane and you are a nurse - please be careful - I would just hate to think of what could happen. SCARY!
