My son-in-law arrived today--along with my grandson. Our roof is now fixed and that is a major relief. It was bitter cold and snowy, so we were kind of sorry that we had him drive 70 miles to climb onto our roof and replace three shingles. However, a guy going around with his card offered to do the job for $200 and that seemed a bit excessive. We already had extra shingles. So...We are really, REALLY appreciative of our son-in-law"s efforts. Plus, I got to spend some time with my grandson...sweet, sweet, sweet.
According to the local paper, there are still people without power in the county. I can't imagine. The weather has taken a decided turn towards winter.
I went to my doctor's appointment to have my blood pressure checked late Friday. I have to go back in two weeks because it was still somewhat on the high side--although lower than a month ago for sure. My home checks are mostly within normal range--eating out and not having total control of the salt level is not good for me--so the next time I will take my home monitor for calibration. If that checks out, my doctor said she will stop worrying about it; if not, we will look at changing medication. That is problematic only because we will be leaving for Florida and my insurance seems to think there are no qualified doctors in the entire state of Florida--so who would monitor a change? I can't imagine that my blood pressure would be high while I'm spending three months at the beach, though. Meanwhile...pesky family history, but I feel great.
