RE: [IP] New Pump Questions



LOTS OF REPLIES ON THIS EMAIL, I'M SURE!:-)
I just wanted to share my sleep-time method which I think must have been shared already!
I got along with my pump (H-tron) a white cloth case (it has a little window to see the screen).  I Put a leather string on it to make it like a necklace and that's how I go to bed.  The first night with my pump was interesting!  I was so aware of it ALL night long!  but I slept well!  I just had in the back of my mind, "you have your pump on, don't get choked or anything, Janet!"  It's sort of hard to explain but that was my initial experience.  All nights after that, NO BIG DEAL!  I sleep like a baby and my pump (in necklace form:-) is a part of me.
I've been told that some folks just let theirs hang out unattached to any sort of clip or holder.  And when they get out of bed it just drags along behind them  wherever they go! heehee!  That visual makes me giggle:-)  I don't think I'd like the tugging on the insertion site that would cause BUT!  whatever floats your pumpin' boat!:-)
YOU WILL LOVE YOUR PUMP, JOHN!  As George Zimmer says, "I GUARANTEE IT!":-)

One other question, what do some of you do with the thing while you sleep?  
I twist and turn and toss a lot and it seems like I'll wake up in the 
morning either detached or all tangled up in tubing!!
