      Lee, sorry if I got off on the wrong foot with you. I guess forum writing is easy to misinterpret. I thought i would reach out to you privately and mention that I did not mean to offend or upset anyone. All I was trying to do is give a very general overview. I don't doubt that medtronic will replace their pump, I am sorry if anything I said gave that impression. Hopefully you will accept that I am new to forums in general, was just trying to help and that clearly this group is great at discussing things. ALl the best.

      No, I don't think so in the least, not the least offensive, just important info that I, for one, needed to be reminded of. Not just in this case but in so many times and places, we've got to work with the reality we've got, no matter how distressing. I tend to pretend that's not so sometimes. Thanks.

      Just wanted to say, I think you were just answering the OP on the girlfriend thread and not particularly addressing my posts, but wanted to thank you for correcting my thinking. Of course you are entirely right and it was important to point all that out. To be honest, I'm just horrified that this is the way the law runs, but I completely believe you that it is and that parents in these situations have to deal with things as they are.

      Thanks, we do override IOB but you're right, seeing a number on the pump makes me feel like it's set in stone and I'm more likely to undercorrect if the pump "tells" me to, I suspect that's what was happening because the bigger temp and corrections worked.
      CGMS was useless for this, I'm afraid, 70 to 100 points off every time. . . ...that's o.k..
      Just posting my thanks for the help here because I got the answer from you guys, it helped, and I don't want to bump the thread....

      I'm so sorry.
      I had a very good friend recently in a similar situation. Doctors treated her for the bacteria that caused stomach ulcers when it was cancer. Thank you for telling people to take these things seriously and see a doctor.

      Well, thanks for asking, that's thoughtful.
      We are supposed to get the steel cannula sets as early as tomorrow. I can't say for sure when we'll start, it may be Friday but I think I want to wear one myself a bit, maybe put them in a few times on myself, work out bugs before I try on her. I can't guarantee that we will run with it, she's sure been happy back on MDI, but I know when we try this time it will be my best shot, I'll be active and assertive and troubleshooting about it. I've already been practicing on my poor CDE. I'll let you know if we succeed! Thanks.

      "I will have to find the info I have on her- she does a lot of work with inmates and other hard cases"

      ah, that explains why this resonated with me, hard case fits me to a tee!

      Please do post that stuff when you get a chance, I'll be watching for it. Thanks.

      Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. I hope your dad is doing well. I haven't been posting too much. Kind of burnt out from over-posting all last year.

      Oh, and I think this has helped push me over the edge to look at pumping, although I'm thinking omnipod? Same reasons, no stuff for her to mess with, but the pod just seems simpler to me, we'll see.

      Wanted to say thanks about the basal difference at night again. I'd already wondered if our late lows were too high basal (from saxmaniac advice that had worked before) but it didn't make sense because we were even at night. Now that we have split to two shots with levemir, I can see that the basal needs are far greater at night, probably half again as much, so by keeping her even at night I was forcing lows during the day. We are now much more even again and I'm starting to get over my paranoia that hour three and four and five (and eight) will see her in the 40s all of a sudden. We were seeing a 130 drop in 40 minutes. This is much better! Thanks.
