I got a call from Anthony this afternoon from George Washington Hospital. After going to one of the free clinics in DC, he discovered that his blood pressure had soared to 218/164 – alarmingly high especially given that he is on more than a half dozen blood pressure medications. The doctor sent Anthony straight to the emergency room and he was admitted.
They are running a series of tests and adjusting his medications in attempts to get his blood pressure down as he is at a heightened risk of stroke or heart attack.
I’m going to go visit him in the morning and see how he is doing. Please keep Anthony in your thoughts.
