Re: permanent birth control

Enjoy your puppy! What kind are you getting? Or did you already get it?

Re: Blood pressure machine issues.

I would return the monitor and buy a cuff and stethoscope to take it yourself... it is SO much easier, and those machines were never consistently accurate with me. They were right some of the time, but wrong A LOT. And it is really easy to learn to take it yourself.
