April 6: Update

I had an appointment today to check my blood pressure and Aaron's heart rate. Aarron's heart rate is still in the 140's and he is still active. I also gained 2 pounds and grew another centimeter, yahoo! (Big sigh of relief there!) My blood pressure though is a different story. Today I reached a new "High" so to speak. I also showed a small trace of protein in my urine. We waited 15 minutes and retook my blood pressure and it came down so that is good. I told my doctor that just thinking about coming in for a visit shoots my blood pressure up as every time I come I seem to have something else wrong. He laughed and said that is perfectly understandable. He also said that I am borderline high but that he is comfortable sending me home and rechecking next week. Although he told me to take it easy (already am) and to come in if my vision changes or if I start getting headaches. I just need my heart to chill for a few more weeks. Otherwise we are progressing.
