[IP] Rx for insulin

I have written how much I use in a day, then add 20 units for priming the 
tubing. I do recover the tube insulin as well as the 20u in the hub, making 
40 units. This gives me a buffer and extra. The Rx must say for pump use.

CCS called me for verifycation of when I was to see my endo next. When I got 
there, he told me CCS called him to see when I was going in. The dates 
matched. ;-)
