I was sitting in a meeting today with other school nurses.
The nurse next to me leaned over and said that her daughter is in daycare with a little girl who is on a pump.
She said the daycare told her that the little girl's sugar was in the 400s and the mom said to give her insulin and that was it.
The nurse went on to say that if it were her child she would have taken her to the ER.
It took all I could muster not to rip her a new one.
All I did was sneer at her and say, "It happens."
It's all I could say. I was so mad but, she's a co-worker and I do actually like her so I just let it go.
I think I might ask the lead nurse if I can do a little presentation to the school nurses about Type 1 diabetes.
If a nurse feels this way imagine what the teachers at Riley's school must say behind my back. He was in the upper 300s two days in a row at school .
I don't really know where I'm going with this and I don't really know what to do about it. Maybe we could all gather the whole world together and let them know?
I guess blogging is the closest we can come to that.
