Re: [IPk] Highs

Hi Melissa

Thanks for your advice and no, you haven't got me confused with someone
else, I do only have a month before they decide on funding.  I have spoken
to my DN and told her how despondent I was over the weekend as I thought
they would take the pump away from me if things were not going right.  She
informed me that it wouldn't be taken back but I still would like to get
myself sorted to add more evidence for them funding me (although I doubt
very much whether this will happen).  I've since added another basal, I now
on 3 a day and from the look of things over the past few days it looks
although that may need to be increased to 4, but we are going to leave that
until after the weekend.

By the way, what's the problem with bananas?

Best wishes
