[IP] Re: poo poo



Wow with all the outpouring messages, how I could I ever have doubted!!!
Just a lax moment.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who answered.
I'd be here all day trying to get everyones names but you know who you are.
You all are a great inspiration to me and all the moms wondering how they
are going to make their childs life better.
I have  a couple of options I'm going to take. My endo has agreed to contact
a doc and "see  what the cutoff age is"  in Ohio and IN.  (I'm in Kentucky )
Hey at least he's helping.  There is also a pump trainer willing to help a
couple of hours away, I would just have to have a separate endo.
I'm really excited  about getting the ball rolling.  I'll let you know what
happens.
