Okay for all the D-parents out there. How do you deal with that one person who tries to be your go to pal, but just doesn't get diabetes? They say they will watch your child or care for them and then does everything you ask them not to do? Grandparents, Aunts or Uncles? Neighbors or friends? How do you tell them time and time again, what to do, when to test, what to feed, how to handle highs and lows, running the meter and the pump. Let alone all of the other everyday normal kid stuff.
My wife and I just got home from an event my wife was honored for at and received a award for. Big deal to us as we have really only have left our son at home for the second time to be looked after while we went out. Two and a half hours later, our son should already be in bed, but he is up, and my mother in-law is feeding him over 100g's or carbs for his bedtime snack. In the text it reads, "He was hungry so I let him have some of the left over pizza in the fridge.". Ten minutes later, another text. "Well he ate all three pieces, he must have been hungry. Do I need to bolus for those?"
I don't know what to do anymore, we have no one around to help watch him, babysit or help in an Emergency with us. But she has no clue on what she is doing and thinks its a big joke when we go over directions with her.
He is now two hours past his bedtime, loaded with carbs and has hockey practice to get up for at 6am.... It will be a very sleepy and awake night for me to watch over him.
