Bill is feeling the effects of his skyrocketing high blood pressure and is understandably worried.

Bill Sandusky here.  Hope this finds y'all well and happy.  As for me, life is good, but as for myself, I could be better.  It was not a good day at the doctor's office earlier ...

First of all, I always get nervous anyway whenever I have to see Dr. McGillicuddy (my wife calls it "white coat hypertension"; seems the ol' B/P always goes up wheenver I go to the doctor's office for whatever reason); when she checked my blood pressure, it was up markedly: it read 205/95.  She asked me if I took high blood pressure meds; I told her I did and showed her what I take.  Apparently I am going to have to take different kinds because she said the ones I'm on now have worn off their welcome.

She asked me if I was under any stress.  I told her yes; we have two new children to take care of.  She looked at me like I had horns growing from the middle of my forehead.  I could tell she probably thought we were crazy for adopting so many children over the years.

Then while I was in the middle of my appointment, some person in the waiting room had collapsed and Dr. McGillicuddy had to go help, which left me waiting on the exam table for over an hour.  I was worried that it was my wife (turns out it was an elderly gentleman; my wife was probably assisting too, as she IS a nurse).  For a while all I could do was sit there and try to think calming thoughts and practice relaxation breathing techniques.  I was so scared it was Louisiana!

Maybe we need to get away and go on a vacation, meaning just Louie and myself ... Mamere' and Papere' Moliere' can deal with the children, and the older kids still left at home can help out .... We need a break before I end up having a stroke and killing myself!

Maybe a trip to Galveston, Texas, is in order.  Louie said her one sister who lives in Burleson, Texas, went there last week for Easter break, and she said it was wonderful.  She's always wanted to go back to Galveston and is always telling me how pretty it is and has been showing me pictures.  I will admit that she is right: Galveston, Texas, does appear to be a beautiful place.

Yes, maybe that's what we will do.  We need a break from Akihiko.  Camille isn't so bad, but Aki: WOW, talk about a little live wire!  He is hyperactive and is always into everything!  He is going to be the death of me, not to mention, Louie ... just yesterday he shaved off his eyebrows with my nose hair trimmer because he was bored, and now he is without any eyebrows.  Looks rather strange!  He's also been very vocal and I'm ready to put a pair of socks into his mouth to quiet him down!

Well, Aki is screaming again, so I'd best send Louie to deal with him.  Right now, I can't.  My blood pressure can't take too much more of his shenanigans ... I will write in here again soon; pray that we get a break and pray that Louie and I don't end up killing a certain kid (we won't, but at times, we sure want to!) .... I would greatly appreciate it!

~Bill.  :(
