If anyone had told me four and a half years ago, when I was freaking out about traveling to Florida with DD, that we'd go to Africa in a few years, I wouldn't have believed them. We are headed home, had an amazing time and were pretty well-prepared. As it turned out, the night after we arrived, DD was running really high. The next morning she threw up and had moderate ketones. A little nerve-wracking, but she had some Sprite (BG was on the lower end), got a new pod and the ketones cleared in an hour. For the next couple of days, BG seemed really "spiky", I wasn't sure what was going on (surprise!), but we changed I:C ratios. Next pod change, I used a newer cartridge of insulin, which, with the other changes, did the trick. Having the Dexcom was invaluable. The things I wish I had brought: candy canes (as source of carbs when nauseous, would have saved hunting up a Sprite) and copy of sheet that translates ketone meter readings (was able to download it and is now saved electronically, but will also put in meter case). We had no issues with air travel. I thought we might get some questions when DD wore her pod on her arm quite visibly on the way home. Much more importantly: We spent several wonderful days visiting my nephew at his schools in the Rift Valley. We did a one-day safari to the Ngorongoro Crater, a game drive in the Ndutu Forest, and more than two full days in the Serengeti. Absolutely amazing! Thanks for the travel tips.
