My sons started kindergarten this year and its a full day rather than the 1/2 day they had in 4k. So now begins the part of having to give my son insulin at school. He started the pump which will make things easier, but nobody is familiar or educated with the pump and we had one meeting which was rushed and 2 days before school started. The nurse was present although informed us earlier on the phone (she was almost in tears) that she will be quiting because she is a licensed nurse who legally can only be in charge of 750 kids at a time, and there is well over a 1000. The school kept promising her they would hire another nurse for help, but recently hired the coach/vice principal of the high school to be the principal of the middle school, which the middle school never had a principal to begin with and wasn't in need of one. Not to mention he makes much more money as a principal than the nurse does. (This is a tiny school in a tiny town, where the High school, middle, and elementery all are connected) So now we officially do not have a nurse at all 3 schools, and the principal and secetary have already informed me they wouldn't be administering a needed glucagon shot instead they would call ambulance. We had a problem with recieving his pump supplies and are still waitng for more and couldn't keep relying on the hospital to supply us with samples. (a whole other prblem I won't get into) but we decided along with the doctor to put him back on lantus and injections until we are fully supplied correctly. (my poor child). So now the first 2 days of school until whenever or when they are comfortable giving a bolus or shot either me or my husband come to the school at lunch time to give his insulin. On friday my mom and husband picked them up to realize my D-son left his lunchbox somewhere only to find it in the lunch room. The janitor handed it to him and told him he ate his candy bar. And my son got so upset because he forgot to eat it at his lunch. My mom thought the janitor was only teasing him, but apparently he wasn't. I am upset because he had his insulin and his carb/meal counted out with appropriate insulin given which someone is suppose to make sure he ate his lunch, or make up for the lost carbs in some way. But nobody checked, apparently since nobody even knew where his lunch box went, along with the scummy (i only imagine hes scummy) janitor ate his kit kat which was also counted into his meal plan, which maybe could have affected him. Or what if my son was so exctied about recess he ate 2 bites and left his lunch box to run outside and nobody was paying attention. He ate enough obviously but it could happen when nobody is paying attention. I am not at all happy or comfortable with my kids in school or about the fact that not one person in that school is educated about diabetes, and I am responsible to teach and train them since they irresponsibly lost thier nurse to gain an unnessesary ex-football star of the town/coach principal who they never needed in the first place! SOOO aggravated. I need to know what I should do or not do, and what my options are. I would sue all of them if I could. I don't have any confidence in this uneducated farm town who is used to teaching whatever generation came from the last generation they taught. (we aren't from around here in case you couldn't tell) Help! And thanks for reading my venting aggravation!
