No Pressure

As part of my health-maintenance regimen, I check my blood pressure each morning using a manual cuff I bought shortly after my original diabetes/high-blood pressure diagnosis. This morning, while pumping up the cuff, I found it wouldn't hold pressure anymore. One of the hoses has sprung a leak. Combined with a dent in the stethoscope, I guess it's time to go buy a new blood pressure kit. I hope it's something my health-care spending account covers.
