Here's that email:
1) Wednesday Lunch
Sure enough, I ended up of having to get one of the waiters to hold me up as I tried to use my walker to get to my friend's car. On the drive home, I called my part-time caregiver so he could meet us at the house. He had to pick me up and carry me inside.
I have been having these so-called orthostatic hypotension attacks with increasing frequency and severity for the past year or so. The diuretic blood pressure medication prescribed when I was in Sibley's Renaissance rehab center seems to have triggered even more attacks.
Also compounding my current malaise is the newly diagnosed hyponatremia. The low level of sodium was first noted in the blood work done in Dr. Marcus's office just before I fell and fractured my hip.
