Due to budget cuts in Georgia, it is likely that my son, who will be in first grade next year, will not have a nurse or any trained person to help him with injections. I know that not having a school nurse is not that unusual, right? How do your kids manage? He's not on a pump (I've thought that he was too young to be so unsupervised with it, but perhaps that's my issue), and I just don't trust him to be able to calculate and adjust his dosage. Agh!! He does have a 504 plan this year and the school nurse (who has a type 1 daughter) has been just priceless. I can't believe we're going to lose her. The front desk clerk at the school is studying to be an LPN, but that is as close as I get for a backup.
