Renee sent out this set of MiniMed Stats...anyone have a set for Disetronic
as well?  I'd like to have both to include in my "Kidpumpers" folder to give
to some parents I know whose seven-year-old's endo has told them that they
can't really look into a pump until he is at least twelve.  GGGRRRR!!!!
