Re: [IP] Medic-alert bracelets

Eve lost her Medic-alert bracelet at a water park early this summer, so we
had to buy her a new one. On this one we put the med's she was allergic to
and that she is on an insulin pump. If we had more room on it we would have
put the phone # for mm on it.

Deborah mom to Eve 12
DXed 5/3/96 pumping 5/21/99
