"Thank you Carleton, I would love to see what you included with your T2201 request. David will be changing endo's sometime over the next year as he will no longer qualify for pediatric care, so we will be looking at re-applying then."

Thanks, Carleton. That is interesting. I called Animas last week about a problem with his pump. It was keeping IOB for longer that the 3 hour setting for a normal bolus. Then when I download to ezManager, when his basals change, the log book shows up to 3 different temporary basals. Crazy basals like 65.873!!! He is on basals that range from .200 to .350. When I called to question this, Animas was very quick to reassure me that the software is fine. Now, I wonder?
I wish I was back there also! Haven't been to Inuvik in years, long enough ago that the 'gift' I was offered when I was up there, I could not accept (!!). Hang in there - 24 hour golf tournaments are on their way. John Walsh' book is excellent apparently (getting a copy soon) and he is a pumper also....
I never did answer your question about the weather. The day I wrote my question (if I can remember) it was something like -38 (with the windchill it turned out to be -42) Too cold! Right now it's only around - 29 (with windchill of course.)
Hope all is well. Your pictures make me want to go on vacation! *S*
MRI is not radiation it stands for magnetic resonance inaging. They are VERY powerful magnets. I am sure the pump should not be worn around a magnet. I was an xray tech for many years. I keep my registry, but no longe rwork in the field.
