Scotland was wonderful. The people amazing. The cities, towns and scenery lovely. I am so glad we managed to go. Yes, the diabetes complicated things, and by the end I was zonked ( I was getting up sometimes twice a night to check her sugars because our schedule was so varied). She was up early for breakfast, rehearsals and then up late for performances. At some out of town shows we weren't home till 12:30-1:00am. Yes the sugars were sometimes high (I guess hormones???) and sometimes low but we got through it all. By the end of our time I became a bit complacent and no longer stayed back stage but then she had two days of lows during rehearsals and so i ended up standing in the wings with juice and snacks again, but the show went on . The time change and insulin change wasn't easy and we had difficulties initially... But we saw ancient castles, performed in amazing music halls ( even some the Beatles performed in), and little community halls in tiny villages, The kids performed with a Trinidad steel drum band, Senegal dancers, a Russian violin octet, and the National UK youth orchestra. We watched choirs, Hungarian and Ukraine dancers, folk singers from Belaruse and Ireland etc.... It was an amazing opportunity and an amazing experience. and Em learned that maybe D may complicate things a bit, but life goes on and nothing needs to stop you!
