My son, 11, was just diagnosed with type1. This is our second child with diabetes. His sister, 14, was diagnosed 6 years ago. I am having a struggle with my hospital as they will not discharge Simon until he performs his own blood test. He is really starting to dislike his diabetes team and I'm afraid they will never be able to regain his trust. He has been doing so well and his Mom and I have been praising every step he takes, only to have the educator make him feel likes he's not doing enough to go home. It feels like the hospital is more concerned about completing a checklist that absolves them of liability than about the care of my boy. What to do?
