[IP] Getting insulin out of pen cartridges

Yeah!! After inserting syringe needle into the cartridge, I just push
the cartridge stopper down with a thin stick, like a crochet needle and
it goes right into the pump syringe. It's a little tricky when you get
near the end of the cartridge, because you have to pull the syringe
needle partway out, but it works!

Pretty good for a new pumper (old penner)!!!!
