So dd starts middle school in September, which is considerably larger facility than each individual elementary school and the nurses' office is quite a way off from most classrooms. I'd like to start using a cell phone so she can text me her sensor numbers and BG numbers and I can communicate with her to treat lows in class. At our first meeting the school tells me "no one" has a cell phone in the middle school. (Well, my older daughter and her six friends all have cell phones and use theirs at lunch etc!) We also communicate well by cell phone for summer camp and at sleep-unders. 1. Anyone else have to fight this battle for cell phone priveleges in school? Any good stategies? I'd love to have her bolus the same way (With me on the cell phone) but the nurses are already uncomfortable. (On a side note--I'm not clear why an RN has to oversee a child bolus on a pump --especially if I'm on the phone-- they aren't drawing up a medicine.) 2. Any 6th graders out there bolus on their own with direction from parents? As it stands, she will be allowed to continue testing wherever she is, and to treat lows. But will need to go to the nurse for bolusing and corrections. Giving up a fair bit form elementary school. Want to make sure she has what she needs. 3. Anyone get to "meet the team" prior to classes and give a "d" talk and answer questions? Any additional advice? Thanks!
