I don't have anywhere else to talk about this, so here I am. My dad is having surgery on Tuesday for a severely detached retina. Sx is about 4 hrs long, then his recovery will be about 2 weeks of lying face down in some apparatus thingie. Once that's healed he goes back for cataract sx.
That's the back story. Thursday I went to dr. (took forever to get appt. b/c it's a clinic that does sliding scale since I have no insurance). Anyways..went there to get them to check my thyroid levels (I'm hyperthyroid). Well, my blood pressure was very high. Like...I have only seen those numbers the last week of my pregnancy! I have to go back in 2 weeks for re-check. I really want to call my mom & dad b/c I haven't been feeling well, but I don't want them to have added worry on top of my dad's upcoming sx. And I know I could call my MIL, but she is the biggest worrier and will probably drive me crazy by calling me 24 hrs a day. DH is no help, he just shrugs it off and says "welcome to the club" b/c he has high BP. But I am freaking out...maybe I shouldn't, but I am.
