Hope budgie doesn't get any worse @SketchyMagpie . Fingers crossed for him.
What a palaver !!
I was advised by he oncologist a couple of weeks ago that I'll need to take my blood pressure morning and evening every day and keep a record. So Amazon got some business from me for a blood pressure monitor and I started keeping a spreadsheet of the daily readings. This involved figuring out the monitor, and it's blue tooth connection to the phone, then reading up on what all these numbers meant.
I started it a week ago using Alexa to remind me when a reading is due. This morning I am 119 by 76 heart rate 66. The Doc told me if the systolic goes above 145 or the diastolic above 90 I should contact her straight away. This is to do with the hormone treatment side effects but since I haven't received the medication yet I thought I'd get in a bit of practice.
Apparently if the heart rate goes to zero my worries are over ... (arf arf )
I sometimes think I've spent half my life studying, and being retired has not made it go away.
Mines just a simple' put batteries in' one.Anything connected with phones or computers would have my blood pressure shooting through the roof trying to work it!Ughhhh you've reminded me, I was supposed to record mine twice a day starting a week ago..... Mine doesn't connect to Bluetooth or my phone though, that seems way easier!
