hey girls, I thought I was done with the BP issues but mine is rising and rising quickly. My doc is threatening BP meds[:(!] I had to see a urologist for some kidney infection issues today and my bp was 188/110[:0]pulse: 140 (she couldn't believe it so she took it 3x)what in the world??? last week and the week before it was 150's/90's and now its even getting higher. I am so frustrated and not in the mood for more meds[:(!] I am leaving for CA in two days and I'll be gone for about 2 weeks. When I come back i am starting the dr.phil weight loss challenge with a new treadmill my dh is buying me[:)]and a healthier diet, no more treats for me[:(] I gained an add'l 15lbs over the last 2 weeks, all due to water retention due to the high bp/kidney issues. My urologist made the horrible connection of this to my previous cancer and is worried that it may have hit a new area of my body[:(] I am meeting with a new oncologist on the 31st when I return and will be doing full body scans up at the UW. Anyone up for keeping me company? it takes like all day long. So, needless to say I am a little stressed. She told me to "take it easy and really enjoy my vacation" hahaha she's pretty funny eh?

Elizabeth,

I'm sorry about this news, I will keep you in my prayers.

If you need help "taking it easy" on vacation and are coming to the southern part of CA, let me know!
