Re: [IP] Trusting your doc

This problem is one I fortuneatly have not had to experience.  I have a
great endo she always calls back whitin 10-15min when I have a problem no
matter what time of the day or night case in point last night I had many
bubbles in my tubing and couldn't seem to prime them out, I had an extended
bolus running which stopped when I tried to prime out the bubbles I called
the office at about 7pm and was talking to the Dr by 7:15 she proceeded to
talk me through what I should do and how much more I should set the extended
bolus for, I felt bad for bothering her with something I could probably
eventually figured out on my own and told her so and got the responce "thats
what I'm here for" I wish all Dr's as well as insurance co's would practice
this way.

Just my rant sorry
