Someone is in trouble – just not sure who. I got a call from the school asking ‘Who is going on the band trip with your daughter today?” Umm, excuse me? I didn’t know I was responsible for finding someone, especially 3 hrs before they leave. I understand being understaffed and not being able to attend but the lack of communication is so upsetting. I know not many people read this especially others with children with Type 1 but I wish I knew what others would do in this situation. I actually called her Dr. to ask if she could go alone (without a nurse) since it was a short trip after lunch and during a time when she is usually ok. I actually trust my daughter to take care of herself but I know there is always a chance something could go wrong. However as her broken finger has taught us, diabetes is not the only thing that can go wrong and bad things can happen to anyone at anytime. I want her to be independent and feel like she can take care of herself so right now I am fine how things went, just not with how the school handled things yet again.
