Tonight my husband and I are going to a movie. We hardly ever (never) go out anymore, since DS's dx (I know many of you can relate). So I asked my very bright, capable neighbor girl (age 16) to watch the kids. Our plan is to give DS dinner so we can bolus him right before we go, around 6. We'll be gone for 3 hours, at a theater a few miles from our house. What do you all require of/instruct your babysitters in these circumstances? We are instructing her to carry the dexcom around with her, so it's always reading him (obviously). His low alarm is set at 70. She knows what snack to give him if it gives the low alert, and then to text us. Otherwise he's not to eat anything except a carb free snack if he wants it. So this is all she really knows how to do- she doesn't know how to test BG, administer insulin, or how/when to give glucagon. Are we being too trusting? We're desperate, d e s p e r a t e, for just a bit of time alone together.
