this is what we do, linda.

1.  take NEW cartridge already filled,  with the syringe still screwed on.
2.  insert into OLD cartridge at leur lock  (after removing OLD tubing)..and
suck out whatever insulin is left
3.  tap out bubbles.
4.  remove syringe
5.  put on new tubing
6.  plunge until insulin drips out like usual
7.  prime pump etc etc

 > Isn't insulin OK for a month at room temperature,

just a habit.  we prefill 6 at a time.

nope...that's exactly what we do.

humalog comes out.  leave at room temp.  fill cartridges.  back in fridge
they go.
