Re: [IP] Arguments for the pump

Hi Steve,

I saw that coming from a mile away.  When my nurse practitioner wanted way
improved blood sugars, the first thing I said was,  "OK but no turning this
back on me if I can do it!"

I am now on 25% less insulin and I have lost 10 lbs since I started pumping.
I'm looking for other wonderful things to happen as I continue pumping!
