Well BD must be getting lots of calls for the pen needle cases. The person who helped me knew exactly what I wanted and it only took about 3 minutes to get my order in.

I have a ton of lancing devices... I have the multiclix, the microlet, and the ones one touch and freestyle came with.

I really want one.

Anna or anyone else that has un-used supplies can post them to in the group for free and needed items. As that is part of what we try to do is get items to those that need them.Thank you very much. Phill
