Sabrina brought over dinner tonight. Along with dinner, she brought a portable blood pressure machine. I’ve taken my blood pressure quite a few times tonight, and it’s never fallen below 143/104. No wonder my swelling is still as bad as it is. That’s as low as it’s gotten – even hours after taking my bp medicine. Would it have been better if I hadn’t known it was still that high? Probably not… at least this way I know to keep resting as much as possible.
I’ll be calling the doctor first thing in the morning. I have an appointment on Thursday afternoon, but this is still pretty darn high for being on meds AND almost a week after delivery. If I could just get some relief from the swelling. I think if I could get rid of it, my bp would go way down.
Hubby is getting a few “props” that I’ll need to take Parker’s newborn photos. I wanted to do it on Monday, but we have to wait until pay day to get what we need! 😉 I’ll be sharing LOTS of photos soon, so be prepared.
