Re: [IP] Kids on Pumps!

If anyone heard a joyful scream coming from the direction of Colorado this
afternoon, that would have been me! Stephanie (8.5 yo) asked her endo for a
pump again today, and finally got a yes. We went in armed with an inch thick
file of info complete with many anecdotes from other kids with pumps and
their parents' stories as well as knowledge about possible problems/dangers
of pump therapy, and he was finally convinced! We still have many hoops to
jump through, but we're on the road now!  Yee Ha! Thanks for all your help
and suggestions!
