Out of the Hospital! – A Status Report on our friend George and High Blood Pressure.

The Friends of Cushingberry

As of this writing, our friend is out of the hospital and resting comfortably at home in Detroit. He will be back to work by Thursday at the latest to return to duty. High blood pressure is the leading cause of many debilitating diseases and death. It is often called the silent killer. Eating habits such as eating and laying down over a long period of time will increase the risk. Certain foods like salt are a primary cause of raising your pressure also.

My friend George and I urge all of you to constantly monitor your pressure. Blood pressure cuffs may be covered by your health insurance co-pay and is fairly inexpensive (under $20). Other activities like dancing, farming, and walking help in the battle against this silent killer. Additionally, there is more information from this link provided by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute ( that has very good information regarding the monitoring and managing of your blood pressure.

There is an old saying going around the neighborhood that “it is better to be seen, than viewed”. Please check with his staff for the latest information regarding meetings and other State of Michigan business. If you have any questions regarding the status of committee meetings please check with the clerk at 517 373 8080. Your thoughts and prayers were felt and welcome.
