Brennan was diagnosed on October 21st. with diabetes. We have kept him home from school to get the pattern down and for him to get use to the finger pricks and shots. He went back to school on Monday. Since he is only in kindergarten this has been a huge adjustment to the teacher and to me. We finally have a plan for him. The nurse comes down to his classroom at 5 different times to test. Then she comes down before lunch and gives him his shot.He only goes to the nurses office for serious things like symptoms of hyper and hypoglycemia. He has been doing pretty good so far. There were a couple times where he threw a fit when it was time to get tested which in turn disrupted the class and then the teacher was horrified. This hasn't happened since Tuesday so I hope we are in the clear. The nurse texts me all through out the day to let me know how Brennan is doing. The nurse told me that when Griffin goes down to the nurse before lunch to have help making sure he boluses correctly, he asks about how Brennan is doing everyday. I'm so lucky to have two boys who love each other so much. However, the real test will be today when all 3 of my kids have their Halloween parties at school and I have to bounce around to 3 different classes. I'm already cringing at the high number of carbs both boys are going to consume today. I'm thankful we have Night Scout for Griffin and can hopefully get it for Brennan in the next couple months. It will really come in handy tonight when we go trick or treating. Thank you everyone for the caring messages regarding Brennan's diagnosis. I'm so glad to be part of this community.
Ps: If you want to know their costumes. Cambree is Elsa from Frozen, Griffin is a Ninja,and Brennan is the Hulk.
