[IP] New Pump

Hello Everyone,
      My daughter finally received her pump last Friday, she was so excited! 
Her readings were great that night, but the pump became kinked during the 
night and she was 600 Sat. morning. She removed everything and went back to 
injections, until meeting with a MiniMed rep on Thursday. They reset 
everything and inserted the pump again. Then this morning she called 
hysterical and said the tubing had come out and she could smell insulin, and 
the site was bleeding profusely. Monday they are going to insert the catheter 
with a needle. Have any of you ever had this problem? She is becoming very 
discouraged, and depressed.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Shannon is 28 and was diagnosed 10yrs. ago......Thank you,  Tricia
