Appointment today

First the good news. Weight was only up 1 lb in the last 2 weeks and the insurance is not fighting my US in 2 weeks. Unfortunately, my BP was such that we started labetalol today. Oh well. Knew it would come eventually and at least it isn't methyldopa. OMG I hated that stuff. Also on Augmentin for a sinus infection. Ugh! I hope the face and throat pain are gone soon. And she cleared me for a Christmas trip to Chicago tomorrow. Yay! I just have to be carefull of dizziness. I love seeing the lights on the mile, the giant Christmas tree and window displays at Macy's, and of course Giodano's pizza and Garret's popcorn.

I've been on aldomet (methyldopa) since day 1. Labetolol did nothing for me.
