      well doctor Muir approved the pump but we are not gonna use it right away. but insurance had already approved it from other endro. I am not allowed to open it until doc muir says so and I get training.

      That is great that Hansen's office is putting pumps on kids quicker now. I think they used to make you wait a year after dxd. I think that is smart. Good luck on the pump!

      He was dxd May 27, 2008 he went in to have his tonsils removed and they told us after he had his pre op.he was 479. thay called and said your sons sugar is sky high and we cancelled his surgery. THAT WAS IT !! I like emory. I love the valet parking , cool. I called docs office today and told them they were delivering his pump there. They said what? why? they called Value Medical and it is comming here sometime next week He is getting the One Touch Ping In Blue.Everyone there is awsome and available all the time , I love it. I have not had the pleasure of meeting doc Hanson but I have heard great things about both. I am just happy we are established with them period. lol

      We have meet Dr. Muir. We have seen Maureen and Dr. Hansen since diagnosis. We usually see Maureen because she put us on the pumps but see Dr.Hansen several times a year.

      Did you say they sent your pump to the doc's office? They didn't do that on ours. Maybe Dr. Muir does it different? What kind of pump did you get. Since it was shipped to our house we were able to read the manual first. We were on the Minimed 508 years ago and the last 5 years Cozmo. We just bought our second set of Cozmos.
