[IPn] 3 days, 2 challenges
Greetings Pumpers and Friends,
A big THANK YOU to the generous donors that helped to match the TEXAS
challenge over this holiday weekend. Your support of Insulin Pumpers
is very much appreciated.
We have 3 days left in November (including today) with $1,100
available from 2 challengers to help match your contribution and to
reach our pledge goal by the end of the month.
Why should you contribute? A member from the UK wrote yesterday:
Michael, the last couple of days I've been having weird bg readings -
high and unresponsive to all the usual things - site and set change,
new insulin vial, drinking loads of water, testing and testing,
eating minimally on low carb etc. My eyesight was fogged as was my
brain - inevitably from high bgs - so I asked the UK list for any
As ever, they came to bat and helped me sort out levels and although
now I have a recurring infection, at least I'm starting from a point
where I can take steps to manage it.
Even after nearly a decade of pumping, having this support,
information and understanding on the list is invaluable.
It is one of the reasons I am happy to contribute a small amount
regularly for the support drive. I regard it as insurance for me
and others less able to contribute but so the help, information and
support is still there if needed. If only others could do this too
it would take the financial pressure off having to raise funds all
the time to maintain this valuable link.
Thanks, Michael, for all you do behind the scenes and all the many
volunteers who help.
P.S. the posting re all that IP does was excellent. Informative and
even after all these years on the list I learned something new.
