Walked through the door knew something was wrong. Flipped om the TV for the boys a ran to our room. I found my husband laying in a pool of sweat, no joke I could have wrung it out.

If you go to the Tuality Health center pump support group, let me know what you think of it. I think it is Medtronic centric & as I have an Animas pump I wasn't sure about going. I looked at the web site after you asked about it & there is a meeting beginning of February.
