Re: [IPk] How to get pump funding...



Yvonne,

Thanks for your info. I am seeing the local specialist in April, but I am 
not holding up too much hope.  I normally only get to see the young 
relatively inexperienced specialists, and I feel they are only able to check 
me for any signs of complications - they don't seem to be familiar with most 
things, let alone a pump, but time wil tell!

Journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step, and all that...

Thanks again,

Ingrid
