For those of you who know/or don't, David has been having issues for about 3 weeks
with his blood pressure running too high. Optimum is 120/80, which would be wonderful,
but at the drs. office he was 177/104, so his cardiologist ordered him to take 2 of one
of his morning pills, after a week, it still was in the 157/95 or 92 etc...pulse running
in the mid to upper 70's...so his cardiologist ordered another pill added to his repertoire
to take pm. Yesterday I took the copy of his 10 day record of BP and pulse readings in,
this morning they called and added a new morning pill in addition to the other pills.
It goes without saying that he does not like this. So he had the copy of his sonogram
from last week faxed up to his surgeon, and we see her on Monday about his GallBladder.
It is a laproscopic procedure, but since he would have to be under anesthesia, I am so
uncomfortable with this ........... he has had his heart stress test last week also, but it just
is scary with all his other issues.
The surgeon seems to think if he gets the gallbladder out, his bp will go back to its
regular reading..........we shall find out more about this on Monday.
Keep him in your prayers....
