My son was diagnosed over a year ago and will be going into 1st grade in the fall. He is still honeymooning on a regular basis and I am so scared to send him to school. It was easier last year, he was only in 1/2 day kindergarten. Now, I need to write a 504 and describe the honeymoon to the school staff, knowing that he will have lunch and then recess, with the chance for his pancreas to be working after his injection for lunch. How do you direct the school staff about the honeymoon and that if you give an injection and the pancreas decides to work that day, that for the next 2 hours until the injected insulin peaks, he will need to be tested and given snacks almost every 20-30 minutes. Also, he would not let the school nurse give him his shots last year, so if he needed one, I would have to go to the school. I don't mind going to the school, as I don't work right now, but any advice on sending a child that is honeymooning to school would be appreciated.
Thanks, Mom of RJB
