Re: [IPp] Re: Deciding which pump



Hi Barbara,
I agree that what pump we choose is our decision, however I just spent about 6
months trying to find a ped. endo. who would even consider putting Jackson on
a pump.  Most endos were either not accepting new patients or would not let us
pump.  I do believe that our endo will ultimately support us but I do not want
to change endos again at this point in time.  He is very pro minimed.  I just
want to give him our opinion in an intelligent, well-informed manner so that
HE sees that Animas is the way to go for us.  If we don't "sell" him on that
then we will be either not pumping, or pumping with Minimed, or looking for a
new endo.

Hi Elizabeth,
     Deciding which pump to buy is YOUR decision, and your doctor can give
his opinions, but that is it.  You don't have to sell Animas to the endo.  If
that's the pump you want, and you are paying, who is to say otherwise.
     We started Claire pumping with the Quick-sets a few days after they were
put on sale in Canada.  The pump team had not even seen them before.
However, that didn't matter, as they were the set of choice for us.
