That's a great NSV -- I didn't think about getting to that point where the "big cuff" becomes obsolete!!

lol I hear you about the bp cuff thing. What I don't understand is why they always try to shove people into the little cuff when it is so obviously too small. I mean, duh!! Sounds awesome to be rid of that annoying cuff issue :0)

Congrats!! That must feel pretty good! I can't wait until I get to use the normal sized cuff, although right now my arms look like old lady bat wing arms so I don't know if it will happen any time soon ;) But it's great that they used it on you, and even better that your blood pressure is normal! Keep up the good work :)
