School is almost here. In the words of Riley (said with a big grin on his face): "Mama, there's only 6 more days until school!!!" He is literally counting down the days. That helps to calm my nerves a little.
I have a meeting with Riley's teacher today. I can't stop thinking about it. I'm a little nervous and I'm not quite sure why.
I've made a little notebook for her to keep in the classroom. It has things like emergency numbers, how to count carbs, what to do about low and high blood sugars, things like that. I hope I don't overwhelm her.
But, I want her to know what to do. I've been working on the notebook more over the last few days. The last thing I put in there was how to give Glucagon.
That one threw me for a loop. I had to hold back the tears as I typed it, trying not to envision Riley lying on the floor while his teacher stabbed him with a needle. He's never had to use Glucagon before and I know it's unlikely that he'll need it at school. But, it's possible. And, it terrifies me.
I told my mom this morning, it's the lows that scare me. Riley can usually tell when he's low. But, yesterday he was 57 when my mom checked him for snack and Riley didn't feel a thing. He had several lows yesterday that seemed to come out of nowhere.
So, I'll let you guys know how the meeting goes. I just hope I don't cry. I don't think I will, but my nerves are so on edge I don't know what I'll do.
Wish me luck.
