i'm new to the site … my 7 yr old son was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a month ago. He seems to be dealing with everything well. Our only problem right now is dealing with his school . They aren't to thrilled with his new diagnose and He's first day back to school they tried to talk me into having go homebound which after their reaction to his situation I was all for it, but his doctor said no to the ideal , she wants him to stay at the school . Last week he had a bg reading of 70 so the school nurse decided that it was to low and did not give him his insulin till his 2 pm snack which was 3 hours after he ate lunch . To my surprise at his snack time she did another reading and it was 285 , come to find out instead of giving him a snack she gave him 3 glasses of water and his insulin using the sliding scale . which is a diffent no. So here lately I've been staying on pins and needles when he's at school . I could understand her making the mistake if she had not been faxed a copy of the dr's orders but she does have a copy of them and looks at them every time he goes to her office . So it makes me wonder if she's just being lazy about her job or if she is even cetified to work as a nurse. We had an appt. with our educator and dietican at the beginning of this week and I let them know how things were going at the school , they are going to discuss it with their supervisor to see what needs to be done , so hopefully they will get the okay to go to the school and educate the nurses and staff that work with them in the office . The sooner the better as for right now I go to the school as often as I can during his lunch hour. Sorry so long.
