Re: [IP] Hot tub

Hi Lori-

We have a hot tub at our house and use it a lot.  I just got my pump today (YEAH!).  I'll let you know how the pump and hot tub work out for me.  Give me a little time to get used this pump thing first.....

> It doesn't seem like that long, but it's been almost 2 months since I've been in our hot tub - i.e. since I got my pump.  It's obviously not exactly a priority for me.  I am pumping humalog, so I expect that I would be most successful just removing my pump after a bolus for the approximate length of time I'll be off.  I use the bent needle sets, so reinsertion is no big deal.  I'd appreciate any words of wisdom

It was just one of those days where I was low most of the day.  The hour and a half of respite was nice.  I haven't gotten used to exercise increasing my bgs though, and it was a little difficult to take that step.
