The blood pressure is still a bit high for the systolic and on the low side for diastolic. This can happen simply as a fact of aging and the arterial walls becoming more calcified and then strecth less so pressure shoots up higher and drops lower than normal. Other things to watch for would be to make sure your aortic valve has no regurgitation, your doc can simply listen for a murmur, and that would let him know there is either a stricture or laxity in the valves of the heart. If you have no murmur, more than likely this is just the way your blood pressure will be and you can talk to your doctor about increasing one of the meds you are on to lower the pressure some more.
