Re: [IPk] Finally got pluged in to my MiniMed Pump. 08/10/01



Hi Vic
I got these holders for the pump, 1. so I can keep it safe at work and in
bed, 2. one that is a plastic box to put it in if I go near water or if I
get wet at work we will see.

I am going to get plumed in to insulin the Monday 14th,  so good luck to you
on the 17th.

40 years you have been one, a long time, I AM SURE THE PUMP WILL CHANGE MY
WAY OF LIFE ( I HOPE ) I am sure it will better your life too.

Mail you soon.

Good luck Donald
