Blood pressure mom

Be was very understanding of my panic at my daughter's flashes that she had yesterday. I was able to be seen within 3 hours as we were lucky there was an appointment available that day. Multiple tests reassuring that my intuition was wrong brought my blood pressure back to normal.
