[IP] Added thoughts for Holly

The insurance company did not sign on to simply keep your son 
"alive", they agreed to restore him to reasonable health if it can be 
done with reasonable and ordinary treatment. An insulin pump falls 
into that category. There are over 100,000 of them in use world wide 
and they are commonly used by adults and children as young as 2 years 

The question becomes
1) is it reasonable to force a young child to eat when:
     they are sick
     when they are not hungry
2) is it reasonable to refuse food to a child that is hungry
3) is it reasonable to subject a young child to multiple injections 
     on a daily basis when there is a commonly used alternative
4) is it reasonable to substantially increase the risk of severe 
    hypoglycemia, with side effects including loss of memory, 
    paralysis, and in the extreme case death (2 kids this year from 
    hypo reported on this list) all of this reported on IP this year.
5 ) is it reasonable to try and avoid the CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION to 
   supply medical treatment recommend by the the childs physician?

It is time to go to the local paper, contact the state insurance 
commissioners office and talk to your attorney. Don't forget your 
congress people, both state and local. You are not the only one 
impacted by this COMMON denial of service.
