I went on a field trip with my son yesterday to the aquarium. He had oatmeal for breakfast and spiked around 9:00. Arrived at the aquarium at 11:00. By 12:10, he was down to 58 via meter and 53 and headed down according to Dexcom. I can only assume it was the excitement of being at the aquarium that caused him to go down like he did. He was unable to get on the bus to go back to school because he has to be at 100 or higher to ride the bus, so it's a good thing I was there and could take him in my car. His teacher said she was very relieved that I was going and said if he was 58 and headed down and I wasn't here, she would have freaked out. Of course, had Christopher checked his Dexcom when it first beeped instead of waiting until it alarmed at 55, that might have helped. He bounced back to 143 and all was good. The second leg of the field trip was to a local park. Of course! And when it was time to go, he was 87 and headed down. Once again, the entire field trip would have been held up to wait until he was up to 100 if I hadn't been there to be able to take him with me. So I guess I'm going on all field trips from now on and driving myself. This has been the first one they've had this year and I was lucky to be able to go. My Principal is very understanding about that, thank goodness.
