My eighth grader was a bit low after gym class and just before lunch at school the other week. No biggie...he ate lunch (bolused), and went on with his day. At the end of the school day, he was in the mid 300's. We asked if he forgot to bolus for lunch (no, the pump confirmed that he had bolused). He corrected with the pump and came home on the bus. After school he ate a snack (and bolused for it). Before dinner, he checked his blood sugar. This time, he was in the 500's, but hadn't mentioned it until after correcting with the pump (which I scolded him for, thinking he must have a bad site and that we should've used a syringe instead). It turns out that after gym class, he forgot to reconnect his pump to his site! (He takes it off for gym since the uniform gym shorts don't have pockets) He stuck the pump back in his pocket, along with all of the tubing! I couldn't get too upset with him. It was an honest mistake...and at least he had remembered to bolus! We got a good laugh over it (or as good a laugh as possible knowing your child was in the 500's). But his pocket sure stunk from all of that insulin he bolused into it! Boy, you really can't assume anything when it comes to teenagers!
