Diabetes Blooper, by Caleb | #dblogweek

Background – This happened at the beginning of the school year last year. We started the year with a new nurse and a new protocol regarding Caleb’s diabetes. All of Caleb’s teachers were on high alert. For a couple of weeks in a row, Caleb had to check his blood sugar during art class due to feeling low. The event he writes about happened shortly thereafter.

One day at school when I was in art, I raised my hand and my teacher, Miss P, asked, “Do you have to go??” I said, “ Yes.” Miss P called Mrs. M, the nurse, and told me to check my blood sugar. My blood sugar was fine so Miss P sent me to Mrs. M’s office. I did what I was told. When I got to Mrs. M’s office, Mrs. M was confused. She looked at my blood sugars and was about to ask me to check again when I told her all I had to do was GO to the bathroom.

HAHAHAHA!


Poor Miss P was trying her hardest to be quick to address any issues Caleb had. Her unfortunate choice of words, “Do you have to go?” had dual meaning in this case. This time, he did NOT have to go to the nurse, just the regular old bathroom.
