Re: [IPk] Charlie Dalton



Thanks Di. Yes, Charlie is at St Paul's Cathedral and they have been
brilliant. The school nurses are excellent and ready to embrace anything
new - pump, no problem!!!
Question for anyone that knows, can Charlie insert the cannula into his leg?
(He has no fat at all around his middle)
