So if you can remember, how long after diagnosis did you do your classes? Did you learn everything at once? Such as the carb counting, the basal and bolus for insulin, as well as the initial stuff of how to poke fingers and inject insulin? My son was Dx'd 10 days ago and today my diabetes nurse seems to have gone AWOL. All last week once we had done the first 2 days - pokes and injections plus meeting the diabetes team - I had to page the diabetes nurse every morning to get the daily insulin numbers based on the previous days BG readings. The insulin was going up and the BG numbers were coming down nicely. I did the same thing with the diabetes doctor on call over the weekend - that was no problems. She kept the same insulin numbers as friday because my sons BG numbers were in the perfect place - this after just one week. And today when I need to update the diabetes nurse on the numbers over the weekend, she goes AWOL. I had her paged twice - no response. So I gave my son the same insulin numbers we used over the weekend. But added to that today is the school graduation ceremony (for grade 8 students) which is to be held today and the whole school has a long walk up to the cathedral where the ceremony will take place (yes this is in the catholic school system in Canada). So I also had call the school and tell them that my son MUST be allowed to eat between 10 and 10.30 - he has to have carbohydrates - which I have packed in his bag. And I have a dentists appointment today as well. Not a good start to the week at all. Only 4 more days of school - last day of school is Thursday. My carb counting class doesn't start until July 3rd.
