So I have a 504 meeting about Kaylee today. I went in thinking this would be brief since we just needed to make a couple simple changes. I live in a small town .. so small school.. no school nurse. The classroom teacher is taught how to care for Kaylee and everything has always gone fine. Well today our new guidance counselor started asking me about Kaylee's numbers and her diet. She then told me she was hearing "Very poor food choices" when my daughter brings everyday . her choice .. 10 ritz crackers with cheese for lunch, yogurt with frozen blueberries on top (1/2 cup yogurt) usually pirates booty and then a fruit .. apple, manadran oranges something like that. This will be her snack and lunch. The guidance counselor said they (as in the school) neeed to "teach Kaylee better choices" I was trying to be nice at first and told her no .. I thought Kaylee was fine especially since her last two A1C's were 7.4 and 7.6. Now this woman also admitted she knew NOTHING about diabetes .. but wanted Kaylee to come to her daily and make a food log and learn how she could make the better choices. I told her since Kaylee had been living with this since she was 3 years old and could not even go to the fridge at home to simple eat a grape without testing and being questioned I did not thnk she needed this at school. The counselor then said "Diabetes is a SERIOUS DISEASE you know!" I was so MAD! I whipped around and told her "You do not think as her MOTHER I KNOW how serious this disease is!!" She shut right up. I am not even sure what to do now. I am so mad and so insulted. My every moment .. as all of you ... is mostly consumed with diabetes. I am well aware of this horrible disease. But does my 9 year old need to be? I figure right now I can do the heavy work .. oh she can count carbs .. correct herself .. bolus .. test .. all that. But does she need the daily worry we all have? She has the rest of her life for that. I know I need to go see the principal who was at the meeting and let this happen .. but I ama lmost stil in shock .. not expecting to be attacked at her simple 504 update meeting.
