Nosebleed Update

Category: Life As I Know It | Posted: Wed Jul 09, 2014 9:40 am

I appreciate all of the concerned comments on my last entry. However, I did want to clear a couple of things up.

1) I will still continue to go to the doctor. The fact that I went to two different doctors on the same day for the same thing should prove that I am not totally against it. My whole point of the story was that those kinds of experiences are what make men hesitant to go to the doctor.

2) I couldn't go to our regular family doctor because the nose bleed started on Friday, July 4th and of course continued into the holiday weekend. I had to either go to the Express Care or emergency room because no one else was open.

3) I am monitoring my blood pressure as a result of the costly weekend. Nose bleeds could indicate high blood pressure, so I want to make sure that is not the problem. The doctor at the Express Care didn't mention my blood pressure, but the ER doctor did. Thankfully I have a way to check it at home.

4) It's been three days and I haven't had another nosebleed.

5) Most importantly... now I'm ready to get back out in the garden.

I'm glad to hear you're doing better.
I recently got an "upper respiratory infection" too. Yes, accompanied by a nosebleed. Mine did not last more than a minute or two, though.
I'm glad you're well and getting back out, into the garden.
Let us know how it's going out there.
