On Sunday, we headed up to “the lake” for a family party. (More to come on the fun times of that later.) I was talking to my aunt’s sister, who is a pharmacist in a local hospital. Recently this hospital started putting together a pump policy for when patients come in, headed by the diabetes educator. From my understanding, one of the surgeons asked about taking it off during surgery. The response: “Do you turn off a pancreas during surgery.” It made me laugh, and it made the room understand that we need our pumps.
