[IP] Support with Animas Rep

I am so happy for you on having a wonderful rep!  I have an Animas pump also
and have always had great support.  I bet the kids on the pump will even be
able to figure out the Palm Pilots/Ez-Manager quicker than the parents!  I am
glad you had a great support group of parents, etc.

<Subject: [IP] Support group experience with Animas rep.

A lot of the parents have asked me about the pump that my son is on.
They wanted to find out more about it.  I contacted our local Animas rep.
(who in our area  is Dave Horton)  I asked him if he would come to our
picnic and talk with some of the parents.  Not only did he say yes, but he
said he'd supply the food!  He ordered subs and pasta salad from an Italian
deli and brought them to the picnic.  We had 48 people attend.
    He did a great job explaining the pump and taking time to answer
questions from everyone.  He also showed us the new software they have
coming out in a couple weeks, called ez-Manager.  He had it on his Palm
Pilot.  It has over 8,000 foods showing their carb, fat, calorie and I think
protien content.  You can program in your ratio and it will tell you how
much to bolus for that particular food. He told
us that the people buyng an Animas pump from now until the end of this year
will be getting the program free along with a Palm Pilot!  I said not fair!
what about those of us who purchased one this year?  He said we'd probably
get the software free.  Hopefully, he's right. I can't wait!
   One other thing.  To the kid's delight, he brought a stuffed animal (a
horse) for every one of them.  There were 24 kids!
    Needless to say, everyone was happy.
