On "real" soccer game days (as opposed to practices) Lily has to turn 
her pump off completely for several hours when going to bed. There is 
a lot of variability in this -- we don't yet have a good handle on 
results. If she doesn't do this, 2am is a disaster -- low with lots 
of glucose. On a non-exercise night her bg's will be pretty good all 
night. FYI night time basals run 0.6 - 0.7

I don't think this is a very good solution, but that is what we're 
doing at the moment.
