High pressure

My blood tests are pretty stable apart from a low albumin (protein) level. Protein in urine can cause ankle swelling.

I've been to ward 15 ARI today to see a research nurse with experience in use of sorafenib and she gave me bottles to collect my urine for 24 hours in order to measure the protein content

She checked my blood pressure again and i am also monitoring it (i have brought a machine to use at home), as it is very high (180/110). I'm being prescribed a blood pressure tablet is Ramipril, 1.25 mg twice daily. I have to reduce the Sorafenib to one tablet (400mg) daily .

Later i have a trim from Paul McIntyre, an old friend who runs Purdey's in the Green. This will tidy me up for the forthcoming trip to see Chelsea play Man City. Can't let the side down with anything over a number two can we now! Especially after the boys did so well in an exhilarating game against Juventus.

I understand that Pat's wardrobe is a bit like Evan's in the BBC bit. Yes? :)
