I know that in a month this will all be much easier...but right now I am...
FREAKING the freak out.
There is so much information to gather for the school. So many supplies. I am at the pharmacy like every day because I keep forgetting things for all of his "kits." One for the nurse, one for the classroom (hello, just bought a One Touch Meter for full-price because I don't have time to go stalk one for free and wait for it to come in the mail) one for the music teacher and the P.E. teacher.
Thanks to some great advice from Donna, I went to Target this morning and bought some clear pencil pouches to make "low kits" for the specials classes. And some larger containers to hold his supplies in the nurse's office and his classroom. I have this huge Word document going...and I keep adding things.
We are up to 5 pages, people.
I am panicking. What if I'm in MY class for school and the nurse needs me and my professor won't let me use my cell phone? I have seriously been having some doubts about me going back to school, but I'm trying to talk myself down off the ledge and remember that there are plenty of D-moms who work outside the home and their child's diabetes care is managed just fine. And really, let's not be dramatic. I'm only going to be "unavailable" for like 5 hours a week.
Meanwhile, I have piles of diabetes supplies, boxes, bags, snacks and juice boxes sitting on my dining room table. I'm going to have to show up at our school meeting with a pick-up truck and they are all going to laugh at the overprotective, anal-retentive mother of a diabetic kid. :)
