Re: [IP] Re: Free FreeStyle Meter



Lucky you!!!  I have a free style meter, but can't afford the software and
computer cables, so therefore I can't use it!  I currently use the Lifescan
Ultra on Rachel, but it still uses more blood make alternate site testing a
pain.

Anyway, CONTRATULATIONS on your wonderful news!!!
