Is it possible to vary blood pressure in a day of a same person?

I have a friend whose blood pressure when recorded early in the mornings is higher (systolic 140-150 mm) but as the day goes by, it settles down to 120 - 130 mm. Any explanations please?

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
