Sheena's blood pressure is 122/62 - that is high for a baby. Anything over 110/60 is apparently high. The Home-Visit Nurse rang the Doc to report it, as that is the main reason she has a nurse come over, in her notes it tells them to call if it is above 110. The answering Doc just queried how Sheena was otherwise, that it sounded OK, and that she had to hurry on as she had a meeting to go to. Naturally I started to worry, as you do. Seems very odd that they send out a nurse every second day to check her BP specifically, then when it is high, then it is no-worries. Anyway, I paged Sheena's regular Neuro 3 times, and he still hasn't got back to us five hours later.
Otherwise, have discovered that Sheena is happier in the buggy, so I am back to doing lots of walks during the day like I did when she was a newborn. Very tiring times, because she woke up overnight at 1am, 4am and 5am.
