I got up fairly early this morning and fed the animals and put the drops in my eye. Those drops turned out to cost ninety some dollars. I hope they work. These doctors come up with these experiments and half the time it's for nothing.
My brother-in-law called last night to say they were going to take Phyllis in for a CT scan as soon as they can get her an appointment at the hospital. Now what for??? Alzheimers is incurable and she certainly isn't going to get any better and there isn't any treatment for it. It will just upset her terribly. The last time they took her back from the hospital she was terrified of the lift from the van. I don't see any reason to put her through that just to satisfy a doctor's professional curiosity....and to make him and the hospital some money. Maybe I'm callous but I don't see any sense in it. Every time she goes to the hospital and back to Windsor afterward, she gets a lot worse. It's just too hard on her. My brother-in-law is going to try to reach her doctor this morning and find out his reasoning for doing that.
He called again this morning and we went to Eggberts and had breakfast. He will call me if he learns anything from the doctor. She was very upset yesterday and cried when he left without taking her home with him. I feel so terrible for them both.
I have an appointment Tuesday with my doctor. I need to find out if my high blood pressure is just a fluke or if I need to take medication to lower it. I took it again on Thursday at Wal Mart and it was still 172/100. This year may have just been too stressful for me. No sense having a stroke if it can be controlled.
