Re: [IP] New to list Pixie



Pixie--Good news-- I am a Labor and Delivery RN and my Endo tells his
diabetic (Type I, II and Gestational) to ask for me when they come in to our
unit!  Any questions or concerns, email me!  I love what I do so when you
get pregnant--I'm here for you !!!!!!!  Good Luck!
