Re: [IP] Re: Type 2 turning into Type 1

Great on the birthday, it gives us both something to celebrate. Mine is 
only 8 days after yours.

The lady doing the mixing is courting disaster. Now if there was a way 
to have a separate pump doing the injecting I would be OK with that. One 
infusion site, multiple regimens, cool. Some day in the future maybe as 
the technology advances and gets to the artificial Pancreas. We'll get 
there some day.  If we would just spend some of that money going to 
fight a war on more research, oh well.
