Thank you for all the replies. I think dh's main issue is a concern about whether or not Connor is resting well enough on the couch. Honestly, I think Connor sleeps more soundly on the couch most of the time because he is more secure. Sometimes my dh forgets to look at things from Connor's point of view. My dh was dx with T1 at age 19 so he never really dealt with the fears a young child has. Sometimes he forgets how much harder this is for a 7 year old. Sometimes my dh just has to be reminded that a 7 year deals with things much differently from an adult. I think we will be able to come to the agreement that if he needs to sleep on the couch then he can but if he feels comfortable in his room that night then he will sleep there. To be honest, it is actually easier for me when he is on the couch. I can step out of my bedroom, test him and then go right back to bed. It takes a bit longer when he is in his room and I have to turn on the hall light which sometimes disturbs my daughter in her room.
