White Dog and Steve had a very rugged and scary night watching over me. Last week my Doctor prescribed a new medicine, which as it turns out doesn't work well with the current pills I take...at least not for my body. This became apparent last night when my blood pressure dropped dangerously low. The solution was to discontinue the drugs, drink lots of water, monitor BP every 2 hours and go to ER if it dipped below a certain point. It didn't reach that point, but I was very shaky and light-headed. Of course, no one slept a wink (I have incredibly faithful nurses). By mid morning things were more or less back to normal pressure and the Doctor had made adjustments. Now both White Dog and Steve can relax enough to sleep a deserved rest.
