Tivoli Village And Blood Pressure

On my way home today I grabbed another shot of this gorgeous stores and offices complex with the Nikon. I used Nik and Photoscape X to play with the image. I hope you like this version. Some of you may be aware that I’ve been battling my chronically high blood pressure for a few weeks now. This afternoon I went to my latest appointment with my doctor. I’ve been keeping consistent records daily for weeks now so the doctor can track the pressures.

I am to continue keeping consistent records for the next two weeks, and my dosage has been notched up one notch. In two weeks time I return for the next assessment. If this isn’t brought down in that time, I will be sent to a cardiologist for a full assessment of the heart function, I’ve not had the treadmill test or the ultrasound test in a very long time. I was diagnosed in 2002 with Congestive Heart Failure and have been fine since.

Realistically, it’s possible that my heart function has declined a little bit which will cause changes in my life and life style. Or, nothing has changed in that regard. Time will tell in two weeks time. I just turned 56 and heart issues run in my family so I’ve got to be realistic about medical issues. Crossing fingers and toes!! Hoping everyone has a great week!

  1. Good luck John. I have high blood pressure. I have to exercise and keep the weight down – and the tablets help. It is just a part of getting old my friend. Just have lots of exercise and watch the diet 🙂
