Re: [IP] Pumping on the Coast



Scott,

My son will start pumping soon, so I can't tell you anything about what the
sun, sand and weather will do to your pump, but I CAN tell you that I grew
up in a town near Corpus Christi.  It's beautiful!  I live in Dallas now,
but I still have family there and I visit at least once a month or more.

I know that there are at least two major hospitals there, one is called
Christus Spohn and I'm sure has endos.  I don't recall the other hospital's
name.  Driscoll Children's Hospital is also close by and they are one of the
leading diabetic research hospitals in the country.  You will most
definitely be in good hands living in that area.

Good Luck in your move and let me know if you would like to know anything
about the Corpus area.

Sean
mom of Jake, 8 (dx 07/01)
