well there is no such thing as a guarantee...if you leave it in your hotel
room, what if your room is broken into? What if you are injured while you are
out on the beach and are rushed to the hospital before you can get back your
pump? In either scenario, you are worse off than if you had just taken your
chances and worn the pump in the first place (in my opinion).
I have been pumping for more than 10 years and have pumped on the beaches of
Florida, France, italy, California, Guadaloupe, New York, Mississippi, as well
as along the banks of numerous rivers and lakes in texas, and alongside
dozens of swimming pools...Maybe I have been "lucky" in that I never had it
since I DO remove it when I go in swimming, but then I don't draw attention
to it any more than I would my keys or my wallet, if I had brought those
things...the idea of dragging a lake for my pump after a seadoo spill leaves me
breathless.....I am usually not in the water more than 45 min or so....and if I
dont want to get out, I am adult enough to realize I have to AT LEAST get out
for a quick hit of missed basal and a re-application of sun screen, and then I
can run back in.
You can check with your homeowners policy about ADDING the pump to your
household items...heck, you can insure diamonds, legs, cars...
Go on...have fun.....don't worry about something else!!! You can always go
back to injections for your day at the beach if it makes you more secure!!! (I
