Gary, Unfortunately this is normal. The Pump and the Sensor need to be a s close to each other as possible I find. I also connect the sensor to my leg, but try to keep the pump on the smae side of my body as well, either on a belt clip, or actually inside my pocket. I have cut a small hole in my pants pockets to do this.

I sort of remember Painton, I saw David Parke for my retinas, although by that time, I'd had the thousands of lasers. we lived on Air Depot Blvd near Lake Arcadia. for some reason, we bought this huge house for just the two of us and our dog. It was sheer craziness and now we refer to that time of our lives as when we were abducted by aliens. in 200 we sold the house and moved to Norman. In 2001 my husband was laid off and after Sept 11, we moved to NJ where we are now. (my husband is from NJ)

oh Gary I meant to ask who's your endo? when we lived there I saw Matt Draelos.
