I have been scouring the internet trying to find an emergency checklist that I can laminate and put by the phone to help others help me if I had a severe hypoglycemic episode. I would like one geared towards children though I would like one for adults too. I am sure that I can put one together, but the one for the children, I am kind of stumped. My children are 9 and 4 1/2. If anyone has a website to point me to, please post it here. Or if you have ideas in making one like you have in your home, I would love to hear them and willing to share the file when I am finished.
You would think, but the one hypo I had earlier this year proved my methods wrong. I have always told my daughter and my son (who is less aware than she) about calling 911, even practiced on the play telephones. The problem was, even though I don’t remember anything, my daughter said I was talking to her and she asked if she should call 911. I told her no. Can you believe it? So I was there for at least 1 1/2 hours before my husband came home. You would think that he would know what to do. He just gave me juice. It took another hour and a half to come around. I have the Glucagon emergency kits and have gone over it, but it just didn’t stick…I guess. I am sure they would respond differently if it were to happen again, but I want to take the extra steps. I want to make a list of symptoms and such along with my info so they could show someone else if they do call 911.
