Re: [IP] 508



David,

We are new to pumping, but one of the things we were told about the site is that if it
is red, hot, or sore that we should change the site.  You said it was sore; after the
initial insertion, you shouldn't feel any discomfort.

I'm glad you got your bg down and are feeling better.
