Eric's endo visit today gave me a bit of a shock. His a1c had gone up substantially, from 7.4 to 7.9. I knew his numbers hadn't been great, but that bad??
The CDE and I assessed his numbers, and while we agreed that we needed to do an overnight basal check, she also said that perhaps a basal check for the afternoon would be valuable too. I'd noted a strange pattern... not daily, but certainly fairly frequent... in which he got on the school bus in range and was sky high when he…Continue
Well, it’s finally here. Jill said to me a few nights ago, “Let me know your schedule, the school wants to meet about Rob’s 504 plan.”
I said okay and of course, two days have gone by and I have yet to give her dates I am available (as I state, when it comes to diabetes, no one makes more mistakes than I).
Before I continue I must........
To read the rest of this blog-----visit…Continue

Back in July, Eric went through a "jump start" program that was a pilot intended to give kids who tested on the low end of the scale a boost, so they'd be more in line with their peers when they started kindergarten. Sort of a pre-K intensive. I thought of it as a "dry run" for kindergarten, and used it as an opportunity to practice my communication endeavors with the school. It went swimmingly. We had a meeting, I gave them Eric's 504 Plan and DMMP, gave them a clear set of instructions,…Continue

Eric went to school today, and I went with him. It was... mixed. On the one hand, he was VERY excited and loved riding the bus. He even walked up to the teacher as he entered the room and said firmly (in the clear expectation of instant results), "I want to learn something now."
On the other hand, the excitement sent his blood sugar into the stratosphere, so while he was reading books and creating the letter A all over the room with his teachers and new friends, I spent the entire 4…Continue
Text of a letter sent from me to a school administrator just 5 minutes ago:
Dear Ms. S=====,
Yesterday, I received notification that Eric had been accepted into the Jump Start Kindergarten program, complete with the full complement of forms and notices. That letter was postmarked June 15. Today, I received a letter, also dated…Continue
Lots of people ask why should I have a 504 plan in place when I have a great relationship with my school? Check out this weeks "Diabetes Tidbit"
Our school just did a school lock down drill, during the drill all of the children had to stay wherever they were, under desks etc. Nikki was in the library not one of her regular class rooms. Do you know the procedure for your school if your child with diabetes is involved in a real lock down? Here is a diabetes tidbit on what we did to make sure that Nikki is safe and prepared for a lock down. (which we hope that we never have to face)…Continue

Well this was interesting to say the least and an unwelcome interruption to studying. Easier to blog with high BG than it is to study
"Just had a first w/ my pump. My infusion site completely clotted off. It was a new site as of 0600 today too. My bg started to rapidly spike w/o any response to infused…Continue
My son is going to eat corn dogs and nachos. I am so proud.
Benny's in first grade and he's been asking to buy lunch at school since day one last year. Since he has type 1 diabetes, that's a bit of a challenge. We base the amount of insulin he gets on the number of carbs he eats - and you've got to count each and every one.
We pack lunch every day and include a list of the carbs in each item. A staff member has to eyeball what's left from Benny's lunch and make sure he gets the…Continue
