RE: [IPp] Pump Question from a new pumpmom !!!

We have the same issue about the beach.  We live by the beach and there
are days that we can be there all day long.  When we got our pump we
were told that we could leave it on while swimmming/surfing in the
ocean.  Alex doesn't like wearing it in the pool and so he has ebb
disconecting and reconnecting every 2 hrs for a bolus.  I think it would
be hard to do all that reconnecting at the beach.  I was considering on
those days to go back to NPH for the day along with Humalog for meals.
What do you guys think about that?  By the time we get in to the house
after a day at the beach, the NPH would have worn off and we could
reconnect to the pump.Fayeron

I'll probably leave his pump on when he goes in the
pool, unless it annoys him...He prefers to detach in
the shower. We live down the block from the beach, and
I'm not sure how the salt water would affect the pump,
and I'd hate for him to lose it while riding waves in
the ocean...
