Hudson goes to Outdoor School next week (leaves Tuesday). We were planning to bring him home the first night to see how the activity affects his blood sugar overnight; I was waffling on that but he told me tonight he wants to come home that first night. The district nurse has made a plan for him and met with the teachers in charge. The plan was approved by his endo. He has a friend who attended Outdoor School this past week; the friend has a pump and apparently something happened with the pump at some point & he wound up in ketoacidosis and was Life Flighted to a major hospital away from here. Talk about a nightmare! He's home now and recovering but yikes, you know? Hudson is still on MDI so no worries about a pump issue, but still. I've been told in not so many words that one of us should be going to ODS with him. It's not really possible for that to happen. We're compromising by allowing him to go (at the beginning of the year I was going to keep him home entirely this week) and bring him home the first night, and let him stay the other nights depending on how the first goes. We started tonight to pull his Lantus back by 20% at the suggestion of some other parents. I've got all manner of snacks portioned out for him (jerky, cans of apple juice & counted Skittles for lows, peanut butter crackers). The nurse did carb counts of all the foods they will be eating at meals and snacks, and we are opting to have him shoot after meals this week. If he's below 200 at bedtime, he eats a pack of peanut butter crackers. They are doing midnight checks (waking him for that). I've asked to be called with bed time numbers. I feel like we're doing all we can to make him safe. But then I think - are we terrible parents because one of us isn't going??
