Re: [IP] Starting the pump !


     thank you very much for your concern, I will remember that. I hope the
battle with the insurance co. is over now that I have the pump in my hands.
I think the big hold up was that we switched insurance co. shortly after we
processed the claim. I feel they were just trying to get us to get the other
co. to pay instead of them. But, hopefully that's all over with now. Now my
only concern is doing this right for Jason.
