Re: [IP] Boy am I sad and frustrated!



thanks for your vote of confidence!  I have the support - getting a letter
from our ped to our insurance to get more backup so hopefully they will pay
more.  I won't give up, getting a call from Disetronic rep tonight to see
what ped endos in a fairly close range have put kids on the pump.

This is the hardest I have fought for anything....will not give up until I
win!
