Nothing scary at all about going to the hypertension clinic at the UW - I wish I had gone sooner! The tech's are wonderful as well as the dr's.

Thanks everyone so much for responding. Someone said something about having an HMO - I am on one too, but my OB see to it that I can go even though it is outside of my HMO, I am just glad that she is aware of it. You girls are the best!!!

I'm definitely going to bring this up to my OB, hopefully she will refer as well if it ends up looking like it may help. I guess I should wait until I get a +++ test though [:I].

Thanks again for everyone's info and explanations!

Joy, make sure to update us on your next appt!

Laura, I'm not just an alum; I'm a member in good standing of the ultracom club. One more session and I get a free toaster oven![;)]

I felt the same way as Carol with the techs at the Ultracom clinic! --In case you haven't read some of my previous messages, I am a HUGE FAN of dr. E and the staff there and credit them for getting me to a "successful ending".

My only complaint with the Ultracom is that I feel like I can't breath when they do the neck portion of it. I know that you can, but sometimes the pressure is a little much for me.

Good luck Joy!!

Joy, Carol, Bonnie and KimB (did I miss anyone?) are you ready for the snow tonight? I am a little sick of it myself! If I wanted to keep shoveling my drive I would move back to CO!

We've stocked up on firewood, and DH is putting out extra corn for the deer. We got rid of our snow shovel when we left Illinois, but ours is a long, steep gravel driveway anyhow; if it's too snowy, we'll just have to wait until it melts.[:(]
