I am so happy about Jacob's first job i had to share! He is 14 and his uncle works for the local elderly housing complex and needs help with shoveling, he usually always gets low with shoveling but we wanted him to have a chance to earn a few bucks and not let diabetes fear slow him down. So he woke up at around 150 and I bolused about 3/4's of the insulin i normally would for his egg and cheese on an English muffin with coffee, this was planned for the fat/protein combo. I turned his basal down 50% for 3 1/2 hours, 1/2 pre and 3 hours of work. He was too busy to test and feels his lows anyways, so NO LOWS and 117 bs after 40 decks plus walking one of the residents yorkee and cleaning off one of their cars! So hopefully he got the duel feel good of helping others and managing his diabetes well, ( with mom's help!) along with 45 bucks in his pocket. Dad and I were proud! Him mostly just tired but he has youth on his side! thanks for listening. Amy
