DH, Marshalltown, Iowa, commented, "Did I ever tell you after heart surgery going for cario rehab the nurses couldn't figure out why my blood pressure would be sky high but would drop after exercise of walking on the treadmill for awhile?

(Probably did.)

My mother-in-law's driving, in particular, and her 80 something year old boyfriend's driving was scaring me to death, causing the BP to spike, before I even arrived for exercise. I finally started driving myself three weeks early, they scared me so.

Hope I didn't scare you like that!
