Re: [IP] humalog backup at school


Why not just get another SofSerter (Thunker) so she can
have both one at home and one at school.  Call your rep
about this, he/she may offer you one for free.  Even if you
ended up paying for it, it would probably cost less than an
unused box of sils.

Good luck to you and Eve.
