1) insurance pays for most of the cost
2) I don't really care what it costs (daddy's little girl ya know)
3) Control is MUCH better with the Humalog
    Highs can be fixed in 30 minutes to and hour, even a couple of 
hundred points.  Basically that means that Lily functions as a normal 
family with respect to meals, sports, etc... she just checks 30 
minutes ahead of (whatever) and fixes any low or high. Velosulin 
takes quite a bit longer.  
4) Lily's hbA1c's came down another 0.5 immediately upon using 
Humalog. :-)
