Not So Good

At her checkup with her diabetes consultant last week, the consultant requested that Hannah have her blood pressure checked every week. Today Hannah went to the local midwife to have that done. The midwife wasn’t too happy with Hannah’s at rest pressure (that’s the second number of a BP reading). The measure was of the order of 118/90. Anyway, this prompted the midwife to send Hannah off to the hospital for a bit of obs and further BP monitoring and blood tests. This meant a day off school (which Hannah hates doing), and a worrying day for her in hospital. I couldn’t get away from work, but fortunately her Mum could stay with her. I think most of the day was spent either giving blood or waiting for results. Her pressure dropped and the maternity ward were happy to let her out. Anyway, we have to try and keep Hannah off her feet as much as possible, which is a tough task, as I’m sure you’ll agree.

On the house buying side, we’re no further forward, as the guy we are trying to buy from wants find somewhere to move to before accepting an offer. It’s frustrating but understandable.

    Hi Guys,

    Had an idea to keep Hannah off her feet – get Kieron into the kitchen! (unless of course he is already there πŸ˜‰ ) Hope that you guys are well otherwise! Really enjoying the blog – its so good to be able to keep up with how (all 3 of you!) are doing.

    Love Christine

    PS – good luck with the house buying…

    A day of school…. Hannah sounds way too conscientious! Most days I cant wait to get out. Hope the house comes through for you soon, and that the BP stays where it should be. Exciting times πŸ™‚
