Re: [IP] drops of fluid from pulled out site

This can happen when you do a site because you have to have a clear path in
front of the canula to have proper absorbtion.  If your canula is inserted
into muscular tissue, or a blood vessle, this can stop the flow. If the
canula is too long, you might want to try a shorter one if available for
your pump. You want the canula to end up in fatty tissue for good
