Re: [IPp] pump comparison



No I was not "bashing" the Animas. That was our second choice. We went with
the D-Tron because the rep is excellent, our endo is familiar with it and  I
knew people using it for their children and knew I could count on them to
help me through. Sorry if anyone was offended.

Mike, you can see right through me. :) And yes I am optimistic. I can't wait
for you to start pumping with Lindsey. You know you can always call at
3:00am if you need me (anyone else, please just don't call collect.)
