[IP] Sites pulling out from abdomen but not other areas

We've been having trouble in the past month or so with Luke's
sites pulling out or bending if they're in his abdomen, especially
after P.E. or recess.  This hasn't happened with hip/buttock or
love handle back sites.  We're thinking that he's just so lean
now & that it gets close enough to muscle on his belly that when
those get really exerted that they bend the cannula or pop it out.

Luke uses QuickSets, 6mm with 43" tubing.  The tubing is usually
coiled & tucked in his waistband, with about 6" free play to his
pump & to his site.   Other than this issue, pump life with Novolog
& QuickSets has gotten pretty smooth.

Any suggestions?
