Connor was supposed to go home with my parents today and stay until Tuesday. He was very excited and we had his stuff all packed up and in their car. Then, at the last minute, he backed out and would not go. He just kept leaning against me saying he wanted to go but he wished I could go with him. We told him it was his choice and he chose to stay home. He did stay overnight at my parents when I had surgery 2 weeks ago but I was only 10 minutes away and my husband was there also that night. This behavior is all due to diabetes. Before he was dx he stayed with my parents for several nights every summer and he would stay at my inlaws overnight. Ever since he was dx he is so clingy towards me and does not trust anyone else with his care. He is fine to stay with others for a few hours during the day but he wants me there at night. I am the only one who has ever done a site change. He freaks out if anyone else tries. When he does stay with others during the day though he is very reluctant to give them any responsibility for his care. He wants to do it all himself. It's like he only trusts me, his dad, or himself to do it. This has just been another reminder that diabetes really does interfere with his life and takes away some of that carefree attitude a child should have.
