RE: [IPp] Re: Pump Start on Wed.

Shanna and Vicki,
Cool....... I hope you two don't become as obnoxious as me about the
service, support, features and functionality of Animas and the R1000. We
have now been pumping for 3 weeks, and her HbA1c dropped a full percentage
point. I can't wait till we REALLY get it together.

Hi Shanna, We, too, went with Animas for many of the same reasons you
listed, plus the insulin delivery every 3 minutes was a feature we
liked.  Wednesday will be a big day around here as
well!  Vicki - mom to Hannah dx May 2001 -----pumping
this week.
