    Thanks Rose, the same idea crossed my mind. I'll call in the morning and tell them how high it is, and maybe they can slip me in, if they don't have a stroke just hearing how high it is.

    Some people camp out in the waiting room, waiting for a slot.

    Thumbs up

    I've been on the phone since I got up. The doctor's office and CVS. I'm going to start a med I was taking for years, and the manufacturer ran out. That's what started this whole BP mess to begin with.

    Well, CVS has it in stock again, and my doctors office called it in, and as soon as CVS calls me it's ready, I'll go get it. What a day so far, but it can only get better from here! Have a great day all!

    I was going to say exactly what Rose said--to tell the doctor's office the exact readings you've been getting. Best to make sure you give both numbers.

    Cherie, special thanks to you for sending the BP monitor speeding on its way to Howie's doorstep.

    Good job Howie. Crossing fingers that this med does the trip.

    And good job listening to our mother hens.

    We got our first heat with humidity yesterday. Fortunately, Peter put our airconditioning units in Mon and Tues ahead of his trip to DC. Bless him.

    Last night we did a grocery run to a large store that has hot food. I got some treats to help w meals while Peter is gone and I got some walking in in a safe, airconditioned place.

    He flew out this morning and has safely arrived and is having a falafel lunch at Union Station.

    Went from winter to summer here: we had all that snow just 2-1/2 weeks ago; we turned on the air conditioner yesterday! I went out for groceries today and temps were in the high 70',s.

    I'm glad you got that blood pressure cuff, Howie! Are you supposed to check back in with the doctor after you've been on the meds for awhile? I hope you get it under contro!l.

    Tom cat is getting ready to go off to one of his four camping events. I have to dry apples make beef jerky, and bake shortbread during this next 10 days so he can go and play. I already booked a home side to take care of me, and a car litter boX cleaner to help me tend the furcats.busy, busy...

    Cool

    Jeanie, I will post them when I've taken more than one pill. Cat, I have an appointment to see the doctor next Thursday to see how it's doing then. I'll keep you posted.
