Hi Ladies I am soo glad to know that I am not facing this alone. After the birth of my third daughter my blood pressure went up tremendously. I was admitted back to the hospital twice. Once I got home some of the numbers were higher at home than in the hospital. After much prayer and faith, my blood pressure went down so much that the doctor has decreased the amount of medication. I continue to believe that within a few more months I will off the medication and be able to return to my old self again. So I will tell you what my cardiologist told me Just hang in there! If you believe in God have faith that you will get through this storm with his help.
