Re: [IPk] ID cards


you are possibly right, it could be that you wouldn't go straight back onto
the pump, at the end of the day, every case is unique and it would depend
what had happened to you, how sick you were, etc.

I suppose at least as an in in-patient, regardless of whether you went back
on thje pump, you would hope that they could keep you stable anyway.
