Well, in all fairness to Gabe, I am going to give it my very, very best try.
It was the doctor who pushed it; we saw a new endo; I asked one question
about Ultralente and he immediately went to the "pump". I guess it was meant
Gabe hadn't mentioned anything, although he knows about the pump. I guess if
he were taking a lot of extra correction shots, that would be different.
Thanks for your input, though. I feel I have no choice but to go ahead with
a trial; I guess I should stop reading the horror stories on other
lists...they are really questions that parents send in about the pump, but
they sound horrible to me (site falling out; pump broken, etc).
Thanks for your input
