Yeah so don't worry about it too much at the moment. His body can do what mine couldn't. I don't mean be negligent just don't fret. One step at a time Dawn. You have so much information given to you already but without the structure to process it yet. You need to know what to look for and how to react. Just know the info is out there and that when you need it you know where to go. For now, take a step back from the edge. We'll still be here when you need us but at the moment, I am more concerned with you having too much to process.

Why not try a red wig, Dawn? That might help you and hubby "divert your attention for a while"!

I don't think he would notice if I shaved my head! He seldom looks up that far!

Funny you should say that. I have been tracking it and it is climbing - from 112/68 to 138/84. This is in the last week and I am quite sure due to the change in meds, but I am calling the dr. anyways. To top it all off, I think I am getting a bladder infection, this sucks.

The BP can also just be a sign of his stress at all the changes that are being thrust upon him and seeing you stressed too!!!! If he has been put on a laxative, that may have an effect but I would be looking at his stress levels first and foremost. Mind you, I would be quite happy to have either of his readings!!! LOL

I think in the venting thread there were some cures for UTI's - cranberry, acidopholus and lots of water. I always found lots of warm coffee was good for me. A bit depends on the cause though. In your case, stress would be the most likely cause and so you have a good chance of nipping it in the bud without a doc. (Think you may have had enough of them for a while!!)

I think you both could use a glass of red by the fireside tonight!! ;-)
