"Wow, that's sounds terrible, Erika. Sorry to hear that. I guess you just never know what you are allergic to until something like this happens. Did you ever find out what you were actually allergic to, like the adhesive or cannula material?…"
Thank you all for the wishes. It's hard to imagine another year has gone by so quickly, and as the numbers grow higher, so does the speed at which birthdays seem to arrive. I appreciate the kind words. Rob
