Break starts in 3 1/2 hours thank goodness! Yesterday was insane (pukers, a kid that stuck a bead waaayyy in her ear, plus the usual meds and stuff).

I have a new diabetic who was just diagnosed. Of course learning curve for everyone. This was his first week back at school. Student forgot to come to check his BG before he started eating his lunch. I called the cafeteria and got the student sent to me. I checked him and he was 110 and so i calculated his insulin based on carbs he was eating and we dosed him on that. He only gets correction with meals for >150. The kid is still learning when to come and I was busy and didnt have a chance to call and remind him that time. (3rd grade)

So mom calls me this morning to ask how i possibly dosed his insulin when he told her i did not check his blood sugar before he ate. Sigh. I told her i dosed him based on his carb count for his meal and that he didn't need a correction dose since his sugar was below 150. She was satisfied with that. But man I'm hoping this doesnt' turn into a thing. I'm already nervous having a newly diagnosed diabetic cuz it's all new for me at he everyday school level! (i have another diabetic but she's been doing it for 8 years and does it all more or less herself with my guidance)

I can't wait for break!

It may be a thing for a minute until it's not a thing. You were right. The tricky part is when he's 250 three bites into his PBJ and you can't figure that out! Good luck. Maybe they'll get the hang of it before they come back?

If not....enlist the help of the teacher before lunch. Call erry day. He eventually will remember.

I told mom that I would call his teacher and remind him before lunch...the trick is the days i'm tied up like yesterday and dont see that it's past time until it's past!

I call for every other check. I just think going to lunch should be a reminder in and of itself. Haha

3 more hours for me.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. I wish that was a joke. Three boys all came to me with puffy, bruised lips. None of them are in pain, but they are worried about how long it will last. Uh, kids, you basically just gave yourselves hickies. It's going to be that way for a while.

Oh yeah, and the 8th graders have their ice skating party in an hour (across the street at the rink). The boys in that class are rough like men, with ideas like toddlers. I would love to not have a bunch of incident reports to write just as the bell rings!
