Re: [IPp] How frequently do you get a new pump?



Reminds me of a situation last summer, Megan was so embarrassed during an 
Allstar softball game.  She was the batter and when the ref noticed her 
bracelet he stopped the game and at first he had her remove the medical 
bracelet  (no jewelry allowed).  Then he called me back to put the bracelet 
back on then proceed to tape the heck out of it with masking tape so you 
could not longer tell what was underneath!  I had to chuckle to myself 
because she was wearing her pump, with the sports clip, snug inside her 
pants and undies. (We leave her pump on during softball, not enough activity 
to suspend the insulin)  If only he knew!  Oh yeah, she is only 8 so we 
weren't talking major contact, more of a safety issue.  For future games she 
just left the bracelet off.
