Re: [IP] Help! Crazy numbers and only 36-48 hours/site



Thanks for the input.  It's nice to know that someone else is still (after 6
years!) also on duty "24/7."  I'm looking forward to the day when the CBGM
is hooked up to the pump, creating a "smart" pump!  How do you handle the
sleep deprivation, and does Lily ever wake up as a result of feeling low and
take care of herself (realize this is sounding a little selfish...Gus and
Lily have the DM, we only have to help manage...maybe it's the holiday
season that's pushing up the ante to send me over the proverbial edge.)
