First I must apologise for not posting this week, and for the lack of photos, but it's been one of those weeks. I shall bore you to death with an explanation. Last Friday week I had a long time coming appointment at the Women's Hospital that's probably all I need to say isn't it. I got there and a frighteningly efficient nurse took me into a room to weight me, (not good), and take my height and blood pressure. There in hangs the tale, I have high blood pressure, I'm on medication and it's recently been increased, when Nurse Hatchett took my BP all hell broke loose and the upshot was I had to put my feet up and calm down, I was calm until she scared me.She said I could have a heart attack or stroke at any minute, that will make any one's heart beat at 102 beats a minute don't you think.
My GP was rung and all sorts of things said including me going there after I'd left the hospital. I actually went after work, I had felt fine till then, the specialist came in and told me to lose weight he did say more( but I'll keep that to ourselves, need I say large baby), what a surprise that was and after 2 hours in the place I was allowed to go. By the way they were tearing down the old nurses home which is a landmark building in ChCh as it was damaged. I thought I would throw that in as an aside. So I'm on a diet plan, have appointment with the dietician and have to see the practice nurse every week plus I have another med to take each day. Have been running, walking and beating the hell out of the punch bag in the garage. I have made a decision not to bore you with the saga of losing weight as it's my battle and I have so much support from "the men" and the people I work with, I'm going to carry on with the things I love to do but spend more time getting fit and healthy. So I did go to the market and I did get a bargain or two, actually got lots of fresh veges as well. I shall post the photos tomorrow, sorry I haven't done them yet. Love Aunt Bee.
