prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

Vital Signs for May 2017.


A month ago my blood pressure was  going higher. I only take one heart medicine now. Atenolol. My doctor is Dr Carter with the VA in Monroe. I asked Dr Carter if I should increase my Atenolol. She said yes if my heart rate did not fall under 55. On May 10 I increased the dose from 50 to 100 mg. My blood pressure dropped. My heart rate is now around 55.
