Re: [IP] Re:Children Pumpimg



Hi to whoever said they are now going to an endo in southern Ohio.  (Sorry,
I didn't catch your name).  I'm in Kentucky looking for an endo who will put
my soon to be 4 yr. old on the pump.  Is your child young and are you
pleased with the new endo?  I'd appreciate any info.
Thanks
Beth
