RE: [IPp] Swimming



My question is.... how are you getting the site to stay on?  I have just
requested a sample of Mastisol from Medtronic to see if this keeps the site
on while swimming.  What is everyone out there using?  We will be doing a
lot of swimming this summer and it is concerning me greatly, to say the
least!

Also, is there anyone out there in the Houston area?

If someone out there knows the secret it is beyond me--I just keep an eye on
my son and treat as needed--the pump isn't perfect.  Let me know if someone
has this figured out because I spent all last summer with the same results.
