Awww it will all be around for awhile even with Type 1s since it will take 
the insurance companies forever to approve the cure procedure.

And my BC PPO paid for my pump, no questions asked.  But try to get the 
necessary supplies to make the best use of the pump, and they balk.  Two 
different things.

 did you have a ppo plan, these are a heck of a lot better than the hmo plan and
better than the medicare supplemental plan. PA and NJ are good places to be
especially if you work for state or municipal government. Although my first wife
had a problem getting he OK for a bone marrow transplant and looking at it
retrospectively Im glad she did, just more torture for a wonderful woman. I look
at my kids and realize how much of her rubbed off on them. Some stupid
functionary held up the works. by the time she ok'd things Elaine ironicaly had
brain metastatic disease. spot (we would have been married since 1962 today) I
still miss her although i love mrs spot too.
