Kennedy had an alarm while away from school at a field trip, towards then end thankfully.
the teachers had her replace the pod, and she had to miss the last 15 minutes of the field trip, which apparently was the mission critical time to appear in the right photos with the popular kids which would have put her over the top on her instagram followers.
She was just devastated to miss that photo session, BECAUSE< she had been having low's late mornings and her BS on her dex was actually 120 and dropping, loosing the pod may have actually prevented her from getting low!!
But it was mainly a control issue, lack of control, and being told what to do by the teachers who actually don't know squat about her diabetes.
Another diabetic at school was injured this week, got low during class, felt nauseated, ran to the bathroom to vomit, then proceeded to pass out, have a concussion and a serious head lac, and the school is really on edge.
So the interesting thing is now that kennedy has all of this beeping and alarming for various reasons, her friends have seen the dex LOW, and are getting worried about her!! I told her just to explain questions as they come up, but she just HATES to be singled out!
How should I handle this with the school? I'd like her to be able to have a little more decision ability now that she is getting the hang of self management a bit more. If she wants to wait 1 hour after a pod failure because her bs is 120 and dropping, I'd like her to be able to do that.
How does everyone else deal with field trips?
I'd love to hear from you adult pwd's about how I can help kennedy deal with frustrations about her diabetes at school?? Advice PLEASE?
