Don't forget to add in the amount of insulin for priming the pump and the amt 
that stays in the tubing. Your doctor can write the Rx for 4 bottles. Also, 
if you have to do an extra site change or if you eat more at a party.  The 
other thing is if something happens to one of the bottles, you need a backup.
