    Good to hear. Did a google search and read that when laying, blood flows easily and when you stand up, your heart will pump faster to push blood through your body, increasing blood pressure, so I think it's normal. It says a large drop in blood pressure could be an issue and cause you to feel dizzy or faint, so maybe that was the test, but no clue, but I think it's normal and we're good. I personally thought that, but also had concerns this guy didn't know what he was doing and that's why my BP was high.

    If it helps ease your mind at all, you're the second person I've heard of with a medical issue who was told to check back in on Tuesday. Enjoy your weekend man.

    It seems a nice chunk of candidates didn't get to commissary yet. I wonder if they're just going to do a mass mailing for FP once the results from recent medicals come back.

    How did your vision test go earlier this week? Did you have to take the vision test or did you talk to the Doc like Jet?

    Congrats by the way!!!!

    Just heard that the Academy may be Dec.2 now. Just hoping I/we get on soon. Maybe they'll give us some time with fp then if we are lucky enough to get hired.

    When did you take your medical?
    The reason I ask is because if you took it within the last 2-3 weeks, chances are they haven't even looked at your file yet. I felt relief Tuesday as it was over 7 days since medical then bam all the people who took their medicals in September started getting called for issues. Not being a downer just letting you know.

    Oh ok. I figured if you had any major red flags especially dealing with heart that they would have to let you know. But in this crazy process who knows.
