    Come in from locking the chickens up, I'm not feeling so well.

    The same type of noise we've been listening to outside for the last few weeks - the cicadas or katydids - is going on in my head. I decide to take my blood pressure. Pull out the little electronic BP machine, put it on my left arm, press start and it squeezes. "ERROR".

    Try again. "ERROR". Again. "ERROR". [​IMG]

    Wait a few minutes, put my feet up in DH's recliner, try again. Finally! A reading - 70/50. Waited about 30 minutes and tried again -90/60. Just took it again. 107/70. Finally a reading I can live with.

    Dealing with Impy is all I needed. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry you are not feeling well. [​IMG] It sounds like you might need to check the batteries in your monitor. [​IMG]

    What can I say? I suspect the first 3 readings were accurate.

    Imp- Lisinopril is my friend

    Glad the reading came up a little.

    [​IMG] Geez Gritty! If those readings were accurate you need to put a diaper on Impy and let him be a house roo. It sounds like you need him there to keep you ticking.

    (Good, it's safe he's gone to bed [​IMG] ). The day that rooster comes to live in the house will be a cold day in Arkansas...in August. Or, the day Jax and Kane are really hungry, after not being fed for about a week [​IMG]

    Do you have any pictures of Jax and Kane?
    I haven't seen Jax since he was a puppy and I haven't seen Kane at all.

    Quote:eh, I always read "almost dead" at the doctor too. It's been a while since I've been but I remember numbers like 60 and 80, don't most people read over 100 on the high number?? When I was younger if I sat still reading a book and then got up quickly I'd almost black out - and to think I actually ate better back then too. Thankfully that doesn't seem to happen now that I'm older. Maybe DrPepper, cigarettes and fast food are really good for me?

    I wonder if I would just up and keel over dead from too-low-blood pressure if I quit smoking???? You know, since they say on tv it raises your blood pressure so much [​IMG]
