So this is a light-hearted vent. I LOVE the school nurse, the nurse's aide, the teacher and principal. Everyone has been fantastic so far. However, as the nurse and I have gone over the IHP that the doctor needs to sign we're disagreeing on one little point. According to her supervisor, the health care plan must include something along the lines of "parents can make I:C adjustment up to ____ grams of carbohydrates. Any more than that and the directions must come from the physician." I get that they are just covering their butts, but our endo has NEVER put a limit on how much I can adjust ratios, and I think it's silly that the school is trying to insist that the dr put that limit on me. I know there are some parents who probably don't have the experience to make significant changes, but I feel totally comfortable doing so. So, in the forms that I filled out and sent to the doctor for him to sign (because his website says he wants parents to fill the forms out) I only said "parents can make changes as needed." I just couldn't bring myself to write in some arbitrary number just to make the nurse happy. I know she's going to be irritated by that. But oh well. I figure if the dr signs off on it, I'm good to go! The funny thing is, there are no snacks during 1/2 day kindergarten so they will use the I:C ratios almost NEVER! And since the ratios are plugged into the pump, they wouldn't notice the change unless they compared it to the original paperwork anyway. I just think it's silly that she insisted on it in the first place.
