Blood and Pee

Hi There,

Had my bood pressure measured again today — 160/75. Then I went to the drug store and measured it in the machine. First reading was 154/94, 79bpm pulse. The second reading was 133/71, 78bpm pulse. I have no clue how accurate those things are, or why my blood pressure is so far over the map within just a few minutes. I think the anxiety about having my blood pressure measured may be making my blood pressure go up. Anyhoo, I got for a third reading next week, and if it’s still crazy high, my doctor wants me to go on medication. Uhg. I’ve got one week to learn how to relax.

At least my blood & piss results are looking good. My doctor called them ‘beautiful’. I’ve got no idea what several of these things are, just typing them in as they appear on the printout I got, with my best guesses in brackets.
