This may not seem directly related to Julian, but there’s something else I’ve been working on that I think is important. I’m being treated finally for high blood pressure and cholesterol.
I’ve been hypertensive since my teens. Even when I was running two or three times a week, and I was bone thin, I was hypertensive. But never like this. My reading actually alarmed my doctor, and in fact, the biggest surprise was that my EKG looked normal. I guess most people with my numbers have hearts that are already showing signs of damage.
I’ve never felt a need to seek treatment before, but everything’s different now. I want to be around for Julian’s life. So we’re treating this head-on and hoping.
