My doctor appointment went well. My blood pressure was terrible. 140/102. My doctor was upset that I haven't taken my medicine for a week. Sorry I ran out. He said that is no excuse. They did some bloodwork

to make sure my liver is ok. Taking certain high blood pressure medicine can effect your liver. He also is checking my cholesterol. The office said they would call me on Friday with the results. After my check-up my neighbor took me to Target to get my prescriptions filled. They were backed up so we decided to go to lunch. He is watching what he eats also so we decided to go to Portillos to get their salads.

 

I had an Oriental Chicken salad that was out of this world. I couldn't finish it all so I brought the rest home. My neighbor and I did a lot of walking yesterday. I was so sore by 8:30 last night I went to bed early.

 

I have a few things to do around the house                   

 before I go for my walk. I think I might wait until hubby gets home for lunch to see if he wants to go, if not I am on my own. Feeling confident.

I hope those bp meds kick in soon.....I imagine having hbp would be a scarry thing. My husband was on cholesterol meds after his heart attack and they did a blood work thing on him every 6mths....or when they could get him in the office<rollin eyes> I would think every time he complained about ANYTHING...omg, I bet it is his liver!
Hey, a husband and neighbor trying to lead a healthier lifestyle....girl you are gonna do great! Nothing like some at home support!
Take care of that bp Dee....

I've been having problems with my blood pressure also for a couple of months.  I agree with your doc, no excuse to have the pills.  Have a good evening and good walk.
