Hey, Jim. Thanks for the welcome. I'm not really computer savy - sorry for the delayed responce. I'm on an insulin pump for about 2months & it changed my life. I love diving with Great White Sharks & jumping out of airplanes. I'm starting my solo jumping classes August 7th & have no idea how I'm gonna do it with a PUMP! But I'm gonna do it! I'm working on some really cool ideas...I'm a construction worker & people don't even know I'm wearing an insulin pump cause I've gotten very creative in how I wear it. It's an amazing device that makes me feel 18yrs young again!( I'm 33). I will become a succesful skydiver with the pump. Send you videos
