DS goes to a camp for kids with various medical issues, not just D. Most kids have allergies, asthma, etc. and there are four kids with D. There is a (completely overwhelmed) nurse on staff. She travels with the various age groups (preK - 6th grade) when they go bowling, movies, etc. Two kids are on pumps; two kids are MDI (Aidan is MDI). When the nurse travels to bowling with the older pump kids, they want me to go in and give Aidan his injection (just one day a week). Yet, when she is out traveling with Aidan, the pump kids are able to self-medicate. In DS's camp plan of care, his endo says "Aidan can self-medicate with supervision" meaning someone just looks at his pen to make sure he clicked up the right amount of insulin, but he is doing the injecting. Sometimes he does it at school and home, depending if he feels independent that day, lol. My question: why would the pump kids be able to self medicate without a nurse, but a MDI cannot?? Like I said, the endo gave the clearance and both DS and I are ok with it. I work 1/2 hour away from camp, so round trip would be a minimum of 1 hour+. YES, it's only 5x I have to go up there and I'll figure out something with my grumpy boss, but what am I missing here?? Enlighten me if you see something I am missing, pump v. MDI. BTW, his direct counselor is a 4th year nursing student and one of the directors has an OmniPod. Thanks!!!
