Re: [IPp] help convincing endo



Dear Mary Beth,
  I just thought that you were in Philadelphia, I could get you in touch 
with our end.  There is a list of endo's (I was "scolded" for not adding 
mine right away....lol) who are "pump friendly, look on the home page, maybe 
you'll find one nearby.
Cindy
