[IP] More info from Lilly

Here's a bit I forgot to include from the booklet I rec'd today of Eli Lilly's
1981 A Lilly subsidiary introduces the first microprocessor-controlled insulin
infusion pump. That has to be the CPI (Cardiac Pacemakers Inc.) pump of which
I had 2 - first one 8/23/83, second one 6 weeks later and it lasted 9 yrs
until CPI quit mfg. and I couldn't get supplies. The first one was the
checkbook box size, and the other the size of a king-sized pack of cigarettes.
They said: CPI/Lilly on them.

NOTE: That said MICRO-PROCESSOR controlled pump. (~_^)
