Yesterday was the first day of the school year, the nurse didn't call me, and when Josh got home, I checked his Bolus History, the nurse had given him a correction of 1.6 units, his BS was 108 at 3pm and by dinner he was 84....YAY!! I haven't been going down to the Nurses office lately Thanks again to the pump, but I realize next year in 1st grade his schedule will change dramatically, and with the schedule of eating actually on a schedule rather than being home and having me try and schedule his meals Breakfast at 7:30 and lunch at 11:30, I have confidence in the Nurses, and with the pump and his schedule I can see him really taking off . You know the feeling of the first day of school when you see your child leave you, and they are off on an adventure and growing up...That's what I can only imagine 1st grade with Diabetes will be for us. I'm a little anxious his 1st checkup since the pump is sometime next week, and with adjusting to the pump with more HIGHS than I'm comfortable with, but knowing the last couple of weeks, it's all come together. The one thing about Diabetes treatment is being able to test when ever and where ever we need too! I am thankfull for that! I'd be even happier with a cure!! :P
Good Night everyone!

It's funny but almost every year sending out children with diabetes off to school, feels like the first year of school. Insulin doses seem to change too after summer vacation, winter vacation etc. But we plod along and we watch our children grow and thrive and we must remember to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done.
