I forgot to mention today was a terrible day. Suffered from a bout of A.D.
which had my BP at 172/99 only to see that dropped to 60/38 about an hour
later when I got up into the wheelchair. It did bounce back, only to drop
once again after I ate.
Suffering from A.D. and orthostatic hypotension is a monster. :-)
