After 5 yrs last May I started to miss a few nights and my son (9) ended up having a seizure. Never missed a night since. It irks me when the endo and nurse say you check every night?? If only they truly understood what diabetic parents go through. My son's diabetes is extremely difficult to manage however and has been from the start - and yes I know most of your kids are too. Mine is super-sensitive to the very slightest insulin changes, exercise, etc. I know of some kids who are fairly consistent with their numbers and their parents don't check. I only wish it were possible for me.
