Yesterday, my neighbor's son had his b-day party. They rented a HUGE water slide thing for the kids, so the entire party was outside. This was a good for the kids getting wet, but for us adults doing all of the work.....IT WAS HOT!!! I think it hit 104F here yesterday...not to mention what the feel like temp was.
Well, I haven't been around here in a couple of days because I had a migrane for two days in a row. I had one yesterday morning, but finally felt good enough to pull it together and make it next door to help with the party. I knew the heat would make me feel worse..and it did. I did the games for the kids...my neighbor asked me to. Well, as soon as I was finished, I felt horrible. I went into the house and saw that my face was so red. I was so hot and couldn't quench my thirst. My headache was coming back. I finally sit on the couch to rest when one of the ladies came in and decided to check my blood pressure. It was 166/98! I have never had blood pressure problems...it was scary. They immediately started putting ice on me and trying to cool me off. They called Jeff and he told them to check my temp...that if it was okay, then it wasn't a heat stroke or anything so severe. My temp was fine....that was a relief. It took a while to get my blood pressure down and for my skin to cool off again. That was so scary.
Needless to say, I have been INSIDE today. I won't even step out to tend to the pool...which very much needs it. I have been headache free today...feeling much better!!!!!
Now, to catch up here .
Oh....I got my last books in....yippee!!!

Whew! I'm glad you're ok! You should definitely sit inside, drink lemonade, and watch The Food Network (or the network of your choice) for at LEAST a week! No housework AT ALL, ok?

Oh that is scary. I've had problems with low bp, but never high. I don't know. I think I'd want to have it checked by a doctor. (((Hugs)))
