Re: [IP] Re: Paradigm motor error

We were traveling for about 3 weeks this summer (to DC, NYC and then to 
N. California). Animas sent us a loaner for the entire time. Jenny 
didn't need it, but it sure gave us peace of mind to have it.

I had just started pumping two weeks ago when I left for this program and my parents and doctor were concerned what I would do if I had a problem with my pump as I would not want to use NPH again because it takes several days to completely leave one's system.  My mother called minimed (this was in early June)and they told her that they were currently not loaning out any Paradigms as back ups because the pump was too new for them to have refurbished/repaired ones to lend and that, while they did loan out 508's, this service was only for people who whould be outside of the country and as I would be in Michigan I would be able to get a next day replacement by mail.
