I have never been given info directly on this, and would never contradict an
endo, but Rachel went high on a Monday night around 10:00 and was nearly
unconcious and in ICU by Wednesday at 1:00 pm and that was with us pumping
massive doses (for her they were massive) of insulin into her.  Also, in
these circumstances do not pump alone.  manual injections are a must!  We
found out the hard way!

Mom to rachel and Blossom, 3 3/4 yo, pumping 1+ mo
