As a result, Betsy will be out of school all week. Vic, Lola, and I are all on Tamiflu. If you've ever been prescribed Tamiflu, then perhaps you know that it costs $50 for a 10 pill course. So we're $150 poorer, hoping that we're all actually recovering from the flu rather than being exposed to it shortly after recovering from something else.
While waiting on prescription, I checked my blood pressure and pulse. The results were:
The American Heart Association says that anything less than 120/80 mmHg is optimal. WebMD says well-conditioned athletes have a pulse rate in the 40-60 beat per minute range. I don't really consider myself a well-conditioned athlete, and I am happy that my efforts are paying off in the form of better health indices. Considering that I have cardiovascular disease history in my family, I'll keep an eye on these measures, and obviously continue to try to exercise and stay fit.
