He'll get over it once he figures out that we're all pretty loyal 
customers anyway...

We need a t-shirt with this slogan on it.  We'd probably have to get 
clearance from MiniMed though...  I'd like one that says "I'll give 
up my MiniMed 507 when they pry my cold dead fingers from it"... And 
we'd have to make one for the D folks too...   Hmm...  Color 
Printer, T-shirt transfer paper from Wal-Mart,  all I need is a BMP 
image of a pump (maybe)...

Mathematics of the pump are great - 100 is much less than 1460... and 
I really like that...    My wife told me the other day that my being 
on the pump has improved the quality of her life too...
