Re: [IP] Minimed supplies in Canada(Tara Dufour)



Hi Brenda,

It looks like Respicare is the place.  They said they can deliver next day
as well, which is nice.  I will find out on Monday whether Sunlife will
cover the monthly costs.  I'm sure if they covered the entire pump cost they
will cover the supplies.  Our health company is Assure Health Inc., which is
underwritten by Sunlife. Or is it the other way around?
How do you insert the Silhouette's?  Is there a metal needles that initially
is inserted and then comes out like an I.V.?  Does your son find the tape
holds it in place?  When he takes a shower/bath does he simply disconnect?
I need to buy one of the thingies that holds the pump. I don't know whether
to buy a waist one or a thigh thing.  Where does your son where his?

Thank you again for all of your input.

Tara
