BP CUFFS AND OTHER DISTRACTIONS




Yesterday’s blogs were fascinating.  From the opinions of everyone, you agree with me.  I sat here forever reading yesterday.  Today my eyes were glued to another Mayor mystery…boy I didn’t want to quit reading that one.  Now it is lunchtime, and I am here.

We did get blinds for the corner windows.  He had filled the two spaces by hanging table  runners that just fit.  We got a new blood pressure machine to replace the old one that stopped working.  We also bought a thermometer since we didn’t have one in this age of Covid-19.  Both were highly suggested by Rose my Scripps care nurse.

G filled the back of Grumpy with my scooter and groceries then shut the tailgate on the big blanket we keep in the back of the truck.  He tried to open it all afternoon.  In the middle of the night, he figured out how to get the blanket out.  This time the midnight solution worked perfectly.

  4. You sound as though you are settling back in nicely. Still so much to do even though everyone is sheltering in place. I am enjoying being a part of your blog life once again. I just cannot seem to find a book that I cannot put down these days. My brain is too scattered.

  5. That happens to me a lot too... about figuring out something at night, often just before going to sleep.

  6. So very good to have you back. I was told to buy a new BP monitor as well. What brand did you buy? Where did you get it? I've considered buying one of those watch ones but doubt I'd be consistent in wearing it. Best to go with a desk type like we have, which is a MicroLife. It takes your BP three times, calculates an average and displays that with your pulse. Hugs and much love to you both...T
