I do want to be around to drive the wheels off the thing.
But, I think it might boost up my BP some, At about the time I get in it. I know my heart races some. ;)
You just can't bleve the fun it is to drive. Pore old Harley just setting. ;D
Get on that Harley and ride, guaranteed to lower blood pressure!

Mr. Drouin Sir:
I have one of those BP meters (different brand) and I question the accuracy of the readings as the batteries age.

keep after it peter.   you get the most bang in the first 5, and some more with the next 5.  you may wind up at 40.  but with bp, if it is well controlled, then it is just like you do not have high bp.  some guys after a few years with well controlled bp, will stop there meds. it is not cured, it is controlled.  you will likely be on bp meds the rest of your life.  even with good control, there is still a higher risk of heart attack and stroke with DM. We used to be happy with 7 and now we are going lower to 6 or 5.5.  cause it helps people live longer, or even more important, not have a stroke or heart attach.  or be on dialysis or be blind.  but no worries, keep taken your medication and going to the doc. and if everything goes away by some miracle, your doc will take you back off.  congrats on the new slab and future lift.

I can get my a1c  to 6,5 with only the right food to eat. But I'm so active I'm always hungry. With the new meds, I thought I could cheat some. Guess not. I had one old doc tell me at 7 my sugar is out of control. Had one doc tell me to have one low dose aspirin a day. Then I read that It might make for a brain bleed. Had one doc want me to keep a small bottle of Nitro in my pocket. So if I had time I could pop one and my heart attack would be less harmful.

I;m ready to see Ann anytime.

that is the way medicine is practiced in Sweden.  the doc is just a helper and not responsible for every thing that goes wrong.  glad you are ready, hope it is a while yet.  you seem to be doing well.

Get a home blood pressure monitor and take your reading every day and a (constant time).   Find an app on ur cell phone and record these reading every day.  Only takes a couple minutes.   Then at your check ups when the blood pressure is higher (white coat syndrome) show the dr. your reading.   My app shows the high, low, average and mean over the period of time you have been recording them.   Lots of apps.  I like one called My Heart.   

Worked at my check up when he said my reading were high.   I Showed my records over the last six months.   120/80 is the standard.   give or take some depending on the meds u are on and your age and weight factors.

Peter
Your not going anywhere 
You have to much wood left to mill and many hot rod miles to run.
As good of shape as you are you will be milling at 95

Got the new meds, went from a 5 to a 10. Had a bunch of 5 in a bottle. Got 3 new bottles of 10.
I was going to take 2 of the 5 to make a 10 till there gone, then take the 10s. So I open a bottle of 10 and there's a 10 on the pill. thinking I can put all the 10 in one bottle. One bottle has room for 10 bottles full of pills. Got all the 10s in one bottle. I was burning supper like every night. put out the fire, went back and dump the 5s in with the 10s.  ::) Shake well. Good to go, ::) ::)
