This is the situation: My husband and I own our own business. There is a national convention that atleast my husband needs to attend because many potential customers are going. I would be gone 5 days and 5 nights. I am in Indiana. The convention is in Portland, Oregon. I'd like to know what you would do? My daughter is just 3. She is pumping but obviously doesn't care for herself. She is not even potty trained yet. Our Endo practice does not do CGM in children but we are working on that. She will not have a CGM before I leave. My mother will stay with my children and I have trained her and she has cared for Abby for 3 days and 2 nights before but when I was only a few hours away by car. She can count carbs and understands the theory of diabetes managment but takes forever to work her way though the pump menu. Everytime I leave Abby it is really her sisters (16) and (10) who care for her. They are perfectly capable. They can do a site change, load insulin, bolus, correct, and change basal if I instuct them too. I would have to teach them to download and email/fax the numbers so I can make adjustments. If Abby were to get sick or something I could not get back until the next day (12 hour trip). Her sisters will not wake at night but my mother will. If fact she does not sleep when she is with Abby. I can get my sister to spell my mother some. She has no experience but did take the hospital class and has a medical background. Abby has never had a seisure but does have 2 good lows a week (30's) lately. She is hypo unawares. She requires basal adjustments atleast once a week, often more. At the convention I would get to check out new product lines, keep up business relationships, learn stuff, help my husband who is ultra-technical interperate what people mean in conversation. I really would like to go. It is an exciting time for us this yea as our business is growing and this is the first year we can compete on a national level.
