[IP] Mini-med's Continuous Glucose Sensor...Steph's update

Steph got the first of 6 downloads from her mini-med continuous glucose
monitoring system today. Out of 72 hours of wearing the sensor, she only got
~30 of usable data...no one knows why the sensor failed mid-way through the
72 hours, but the correlation coefficient with her Accu-chek Complete was
95% for the 30 hour period! The folks running the study were pleased with
the data and sensor number 2 is inserted and reading like a charm so far. No
word from the folks as to when the technology is to be widely available, but
we were cautioned to be careful with this $5k piece of equipment!
