Okay, Jimmy, I'm talking two diff. pumps here, with two diff. delivery
systems/rates. CPI delivered in whole units only. There was one basal rate
for 24 hours. Right now (MM507C) I'm on 0.7uph. On the CPI (for 9+ years) it
would have taken about 87 (1 hr. 27 min.) minutes before my present rate was
delivered at that whole-unit rate. My hugsband isn't a Jim Handsfield
either, ;) but he has a calculator and figured it out for me. <VBG> The CPI
pump could only deliver one unit at a time - therefore, if it delivered that
unit in one hour, my basal would have been much higher since *now* I'm
getting only 0.7 uph - not 1.0 uph. Is that as clear as milk glass???
