    Oh, Jeanie, that is so scary. I’m glad you are safe now and hope you don’t hurt today.

    Prayers said for you.

    Close call Jeanie. Paramedics have seen EVERYTHING... not to worry about being exposed. I lost my modesty years ago when pregnant. And more recently when DH had to help me with enema related problems. Oh Well....

    Virginia, there is plenty that can be done with BP. First off, can you measure it several times a day at home? I believe Howie has a cuff that Cherie sent him: maybe he will say what brand etc it is.

    Then, you can fone in the readings. Seems like doc wasn’t overalls impressed, maybe she sees it as needing monitoring rather than treating?

    Could the pain from the shingles be causing this. Pain does that for me when it is bad. Or any significant emotional distress.

    My BP cuff is called a "LotFancy. It's all automatic and easy to use. I THINK, but don't quote me, it came from CVS.

    Jeanie, what an awful feeling that must have been to lie there not knowing if or when Andy would come. Thankfully, he did. I am so glad you are alright and I hope you will not be sore from this.

    Sunshine, I am monitoring my BP at home and so far my readings beginning yesterday have been good. So, I am not too concerned unless there is something wrong with my BP monitor. It is a digital wrist kind.

    It must have been extremely uncomfortable to lie there for an hour and a half on her stomach. The hard floor would have been torture.

    :) My boobs were crushed and my neck and ribs were in pain. I also have Shingles pain and it is severe.

    My whole upper half hurts a lot. It is hard to get out of bed with the pain. I spent the entire day in bed. It is hard to stand also. I am being super careful.

    I appreciate everyone's concern. It just takes time for the pain to go away.

    My shingles do look better but a few spots are sill quite raw.Take care and stay safe. Jeanie :)

    Thank you for checking in, Jeanie.

    I wish you felt better.

    I’ve heard that chocolate helps everything.

    I've heard that too--about chocolate, and it's definitely true.

    Chocolate is the first thing I try when I am hurting or sick, well pretty much every chance I get.

    Jeanie, hope you will improve a little more each day.
