Today ds had his first field trip while on the pump. The school freaked out a bit since no one who was certified to check his blood was available to go. He was just going to a play and would be back at school before lunch. I ended up going, but had to take dd with me. We have another field trip coming up, but it is a hiking trip and I can't take dd with for that one. I told the school that since they may be outside of cell phone range that I would send my husband or father inlaw (who also pumps). I know it isn't an issue with ds right now, but I don't want it to be an issue in the future with me coming along. Should I push for them to bring a nurse along? I don't want to create problems as the school has been great. In fact, one mom of a D kid took a job part time at the school a few years ago just so she would have the chance to educate the staff on the D kids. We have 5 T1D's at school and a type 3 too.
