Today was a milestone day for me. Today is the first day I left Kacey with anyone other than school or my Mom. I had to be at the training at 8am and school doesnt start until 8:40am. I took her to Frankie's cousin's house (who happens to be a very good friend of mine and her daughter is the same age as Kacey) I knew I could trust Bev with Kacey. I showed her Kacey's bag yesterday and showed her how to work the glucagon (just in case!). I dropped Kacey off at 7:45am and headed to my training. I got a break at lunch and I called the school to check on her and she was doing fine :) But I did get a bit of a "monkey wrench" thrown into my plans. I was originally told that it was going to be Tues & Thurs from 8am-4:30pm and now it's going to be on Friday! Well that means it's the last day of school before winter break. That also means I miss Kacey's school party. But most important...she has a fieldtrip that day!!! Shes going to the movies and I am VERY nervous now. It will be the first fieldtrip that I've not gone on since her diagnosis. I sat there brainstorming about what I needed to do. I can't miss my training on Friday because they aren't offering it again until next August. Sooooo....I am going to have her test before she leaves for the movie at 9:30am....eat a snack at the movie....then test when she gets back at 12pm. Hopefully this will eliminate any lows while she's out and then we can deal with the high once she gets back to school. OMG...I feel like I'm panicing over nothing but I'm scared to let her go. I know she will be ok and she can sit with the teacher during the movie. I am hoping that Bev (Frankie's cousin) will be able to go. Kacey & Whitney are in the same class and they were only allowing a certain number of chaperones to go. If they let her go then she can sit with her and she will know what to do (just in case!)
OK....Im gonna shut up and stop rambling!
LOL....so yeah it was a long day today. Lots of stuff about policies and procedures that I already knew from being in the classroom already.
