last friday, we did matts IEP meeting. He qualifies for an IEP due to health reasons. I sat in the meeting with a friend, and basically was railroaded by the school officials. Fine, they all but called me on the carpet for educational neglect becouse of matts being behind and school absences. He not only has D, but suffers from migraines as well. I have, in the past, never sent him when he has had ketones. I wait till the ketones are gone, then bring him in late. I have also had him stay in the mornings with headaches till he is better. My bad for being a crappy mom keeping the sick child home. I was told I HAD to send him even when he has ketones, after all, they are nurses!!! who better to leave my little darlin with then nurses!!! (by the way, this is the nurse over all three schools, not Darla Im having issue with) They will know exactly what to do. I said SEVERAL times, I am NOT comfortable bringing matt in with ketone, he feels sick, he should not be in school.... So, railroading over me, they decide that matt should come in right away in the morning, and test, becouse we have had a few instences where matt has forgotten to bolus... and he becomes high. However, that doesnt lead to the ketone problem usually. This was last friday, the 13th. (I should have known) So today, matt of cource, does not go to the office right away, so they call him down at 9;05. (school starts at 9:00) wonder of all wonders, my son s 478, so they check ketones. (for those wondering, my husband got him off to school today and forgot to test him, Bad dad...) And, KETONES of 3.9! THEY SENT HIM OFF TO CLASS!!!!! I get a call at 12pm, will you come and pick yp matt, he is vomiting, he must be sick. ken goes back to get him. He comes home, and I ask him what happened, tested him and tested ketones, he is HIGH and ketones 4.9!!! I ask what happened, he told me, he was tested, sent to class, he was sick, went to the nurse, they called, we went to get him. they never even bothered to test him or his ketones before calling us to come get him! Heck, the never bothered to test ketones at the 20min mark like we do at home to ensure he is going down. Or even bother to just test the blood sugar to see if it was going down. 3.9 and they freakin send him off to class.... after all, they are nurses, professionals that can handle this. Im sooooo mad thank God there is only 2 more weeks of school. kinked canula was the culprit. He wasnt getting any insulin, hence the ketones. Problem would have been (should have been) caught at the 20-40 minute mark with that blood sugar and ketone level.
