Back Amongst the Blogging

Arrgh, internet providers. At least things seem fine now. We'll see if this lasts. Anyways, just a quick update. I'm happy to report that Portsmouth won their game against Everton today, 3-0. Woo hoo! Finally! And we're no longer in last place. We're not in first place, mind you, but it's a start... Facing Middlesborough next Saturday.

Isn't this just the most beautiful thing to discover when you hop into the shower first thing in the morning? Seems that the fabulous Dr. H's nurse was just a tad bit enthusiastic when she slapped on the blood pressure cuff yesterday. At the time, I didn't think much of it - she usually makes it tight (frankly she's got the potential for a new career as a Dominatrix if she ever gives up nursing). Isn't this a lovely shot of the broken blood vessels in my left arm? They just popped up this morning, out of the blue. However, I'm looking on them as a temporary badge of honour - my blood pressure is absolutely fabulous. If I keep this up, I'm bound to get a gold star one of these days. (You can click on the photo for an enlarged shot of my arm).

That is one fierce blood pressure taking nurse! I'm used to getting bruised up from taking blood samples, but not pressure.

OH, I have some true horror stories about me & blood pressure cuffs. That mark you have is NOTHING compared to the one I got when I was in an ambulance on the way to the hospital, hooked up to a MALFUNCTIONING automatic blood pressure cuff. It was horrible and my arm looked & felt horrible for days.

As an Everton fan I clearly do not share your joy! The postmortem continues in this household...

Looks like we are both victims or overly zealous nurses! I've had BP taken a zillion times and never had a mess like that. Anything with blood vessels is so painful. Watch your arm carefully for swelling too - don't want a blood clot showing up. I'm becoming medically paranoid and afraid of medical personnel.
