    upstream, but buy yourself a bp cuff and stethoscope. It is worth it, you and Leaves can "practice" on each other, but I had great results with taking my own.  Much less stressful with the cats checking out the noise, at home. Doesn't have to be done multiple times a day, but worth checking esp to see if you are actually NaCl-sensitive.

    It's late you are probably asleep. Sweet dreams and no hospital sounds.

      So many of us (me ibcluded) suffer from White .. Coat Syndrome. Taking BP at home regularly may provide more accurate readings than those taken in ERs, MD's offices etc. PS:Feel better Teacherken and best to Leaves!
