Dripline Issue 44 is out!

The May-July 2023 issue of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

Welcome to our latest issue of Dripline. I give thanks to our several members who took the time to contribute their articles and share their thoughts and comments with the rest of us. There are several ‘save the dates’ in this issue, so please take note of them and consider if you are able to attend any, or all, of the events. Also, it’s time for our biennial PNDU Awards, so start thinking of which clinician or employee you might nominate, who does exceptional work in caring for you. Have you heard of green banana powder? It might be something that could help you. Read about how some of our members manage life on HPN while working – and sadly some who can’t. We also learn of one member’s soap-making hobby. We are reminded of the importance of regularly maintaining our pumps so that they continue to function well.

I hope you enjoy the read,

Dripline Editor
