Erin saw Dr. Adams today. She had lost another 7.5 lbs, so she is losing a little over 2 lbs a week which pleases Erin even though she doesn’t feel like clothes fit any better. Dr. Adams doesn’t comment on the weight loss.
When we told him that Erin had decided to discontinue the blood pressure medicine, he said that was ok. He said having high blood pressure for a year or two is ok. It is when you have it for 20 years that it can do damage.
He felt the lump on the back of her head from Saturday night’s fall and said that it seemed ok. She should try to avoid falls.
She seemed about the same to him as last time except that she was having considerably more trouble with word finding. In fact, all day her words have seemed to be a jumble.
