My son is sick today, not horribly sick, but hot/cold, sore throat, tired, draggy,not eating, skipping doing school as he can't concentrate. No fever that I can tell (can't find my thermometer but he's not at all hot to feel). BG in the 150 range, so that's pretty good all in all. He's not been truly sick since diagnosis other than minor colds. This may just be a heavy cold or something more, no way to know at this point. He's 16, totally and completely independent in D care, to the point that if I had to work his pump I'd have to look in the manual! We confer on ratios/basals, carbs, dosing, etc, but as far as actually managing the pump and testing and such, he's in control. I'm scheduled to work tomorrow. My husband is out of town. Work is more than an hour away. I work by contract (prn for the medical types out there) and rarely work weekdays, usually only weekends, there was a high need this week so I agreed. Work is needed, my paycheck is earmarked specifically for pump supplies, insulin, then I pay for the classes he attends. Not working is a BIG DEAL, not only in being seen as flakey but financially. But I'm nervous. I don't really want to be that far away in case he gets more sick, or whatever. But...he's 16, it's not like I can actually DO much for him anyway. Blah. What would you do? Cancel work or go?
