Re: [IP] My 12 mo old was just diagnosed



My son was diagnosed at age 7.  He is now a few weeks short of turning 11. 
We live in Northern Virginia, a suburb of Washington D.C.  Nobody here would 
put my son on a pump.  We decided to travel the 3.5 hours to see Dr. Schorr 
for a pump start.  We love him so much that we still (3+ years later) make 
that trip 3-4 times a year.  Dr. Schorr was a Godsend to our family!  To 
whom are you speaking at Animas?  Is it Natalie Bellini?  Please feel free 
to contact me with any questions.
