Well, I went down to the pool, floated around on the floaty thing reading Kindle in it's waterproof case, and was finally joined by a neighbor and her son. Upshot is I was able to gift said neighbor with one of the grocery bags of apples! Her DH is very excited about making apple sauce, I suggested that he make it in the crock pot, he thought that was a great idea, as he's going on a hunting trip next week and would love to take it with him.

I am so sick of these stupid trips to the ER. Don't they understand that after sleeping for eight or more hours, of course your BP is going to be low to start with? And I have tried everything I can think of to not letting this happen. Make sure I eat something before I take them, take them later in the morning, well after the prescribed time, take one pill (there are two, 10mg each) at a time spaced an hour apart. I have even done housework that requires complete physical effort in order to try to raise my BP. So I will just stop taking the morning dose.

I don't recommend patients ever taking this step unless they know what they are doing. I have researched this drug and it is a delayed reaction drug. All this foolishness happens about an hour after I have taken the drug. Even my son the PA has some serious doubts about the dosage of this drug. My next step is to make an appointment with my cardiologist and talk to him. Winthrop is becoming a woose in making any decision when it comes to over riding another doctor's prescribe treatment. Even if they disagree with it.

Just finished up a batch of bacon ranch potato salad for tomorrow's cookout for my daughter, SIL and grandson. I'm also doing poppers on the grill using sweet peppers as none of my family likes hot peppers.

Save me some of that potato salad please. Are you using ranch dressing with bacon? (One of my favorite dressings.)

That sounds like some tasty potato salad.
And I just happened to pick up some redskins at the fruit stand earlier when I was buying my corn.

Addie, ranch dressing plus a pound of bacon. Also eggs, cucumbers, Kalamata olives and purple onions.
