i decided to call mine steph.
it's a wierd name for a pump (i wanted to call it hetty), but the name steph/stephanie is very close to my heart. when i got my pump i was having a very bad emotional AND physical time of things, and she was the only person who really believed in me & was the only person who was there every second of every day <3
