My five year old goes to church choir every Sunday afternoon from 4:30 - 6:00. I ALWAYS go with him and stay just because of his diabetes. People are aware of his condition there, but no one is trained to check him or help in any way. He is on a pump and every Sunday does great with blood sugars. I rarely ever check his blood sugar during children's choir because there is no need. Today I seriously contemplated leaving him and giving the teacher my cellphone number so that I could run some errands. He ALWAYS does fine was my thought. My husband and I decided though that I should stay with him like I always do, and I did so - but wasn't that happy about it. Around 5:30 during art time, I noticed my son was struggling to write his name and just wasn't acting right. I pulled him aside and checked his blood sugar. 36!!! WHAT????!!!! I quickly pulled out the starbursts and snack and had him sit until a recheck of 93. I then just started to cry - thinking WHAT IF? What if I would have left him - he would probably have passed out on the table before I got back. God was looking out for me today. The teacher said even though I have never left - that she will require me to stay with him from now on. So sad today - just a harsh reality check.
