Hi Ian

It was a shame that Prof. john Pickup was not more positive but there you go,
still the pump got more publicity.

And how nice to read of someone who has had D for so many years and is doing
so well.

Ian, what were the first pumps like and how did you manage to get one then?
Did you get it here in the UK?

Mum of Sasha aged 7 diabetic for over 3 years now.
