Need input RE: Pros and Cons of Pump Holiday at Sleepaway Camp

My 10 YO T1D (dx March 2011) has been on the pump most of the last 3 years.

"I reinvented the wheel and it was quick! A couple photos of the meter and how to check/bolus and get you the IOB should do the trick, along with a grid of bg ranges and appropriate actions. Good luck. Maybe a video clip with some demos too!"

"Bad things usually happen when companies are purchased by large companies. This is no exception. I would expect the Vibe will probably not appear in the US and a new Roche pump will debut in the 2015 timeframe. Such is life! Jeff"

"Interesting. Most businesses drop programs because they are NOT popular. Clearly a money issue for them. It was a good idea to do this but I think they were the only ones doing it. So much for product differentiation! Jeff"
