Hi there! It's been a while! Things are generally going pretty well over here and the summer fun has just started. Noah is showing a growing interest in self-managing his diabetes. We've already let him go to a few parties without us coming with him. We live in a very small town, so the parties are rarely more than 5 minutes away from us and with him on the Dex, we felt like it's reasonably safe. He typically texts us what he's planning to eat, we text him back a carb count and he lets the pump do the math, texts us the dose and we sign off on it. So far, it's been very smooth. The relationship with the school nurse has been... well... OK. Not great and he feels it takes a lot of time out of his school day to run back and forth to her for boluses. He starts 4th grade next year, and we're toying with the idea of letting him self-manage and self-administer with a sign-off over text from us or the nurse. There's another kid about the same age in our area who's been doing it successfully for two years now. Our endo is very much against this idea and doesn't think anyone younger than 10-11 should self-manage, even if it's under supervision. Noah has matured a lot over the last year and has turned into an intelligent and responsible kid. My wife and I think we may be ready for some assisted/supervised self management. What's you experience?
