[IP] I'm BACK!!

 Well after a month(or so) of no mail I am back!!!! I went away - to Florida for
2 weeks to come home and find that my internet was still down(it had gone down a
week before I left) but I finally figured out what was wrong and I am back!!

 Trip was great other then the fact that my pump died at midnight of day 2!!
Saturday night it just kinda froze I phoned and they said it sounded like water
got in - which is most likely what happened as I was in the pool most of the day
- and there was a weird spot inside the pump which looked like water anyways
they fed ex'd my new pump to the hotel I would be at on Tuesday mornign and I
just did hourly shots till then which worked great - other then the overnights
cause I just woke up once or twice to correct - usually I was about
15.0-17.0(270-300) in the mornings - not great but better then the numbers I was
having pre-pump.

 Hooked up to my new pump and havn't had a problem since - it went really
smoothly considering the fact that my pump died - I remained surprisingly calm -
mainly due to the fact that I was to busy to think about it and my cousin, her
husband and 17 year old daughter(also my cousin of some sort) where quite
paniced about it all! I never told my mom(back home) about it till I was hooked
up to my new one as to not cause total panic back home!!

 AND cause I was soooo smart and remembered to write down my basal rates and
bring them with me hook up was easy!!

Anyways I'm back and missed you all!
