Things what we learned at the doctor today:

Apparently, the doctors don't like it when your blood pressure is 140/110.

At least, they'll keep taking it, trying to make it something else. Five times, I had my blood pressure taken. Owie.
Did they get consistent results? Often, doctors will try several times if the figure looks artificially high (mine eventually ended up giving me a machine to take home over a weekend, after which we discovered that my very high BP was in fact slightly low when I wasn't recovering from a 20 minute walk *and* nervous as all hell).
