Re: [IP] Starting Pump



HI Laurline

My doctor educated me about the pump a month before my hook up.  The day of
hook up I got there early and packed lunch and snacks.  Spent the day with
the nurse monitoring my levels.  (He also had me on a mix including humalog
to make the transition easier)  Anyways didn't need to stay the day
everything went smooth.  It will for you too.  Take Care Carol T.
