This will be our sons first seasin in football. He has dreamed of playing since he was 4. but had to wait until the age of 8 (school requirement). We broke his heart last year telling him no. It was his first year with diabetes and we were still learning and terrified!
This year I say yes and Dad says... "I dont know about that." We just realized Football clinic is nexxt month so we need to get our questions answered and figure out what is best for him!
Here are my questions:
Do you leave your pump on during football?
Where can we get a protector for the pump? We have been told there is a item that goes around your belly and the pump fits right in it for safety and you do not need to disconnect.
Is it unrealistic to ask to be a coach or asst. coach so that we know we can be on the sidelines and checking him regularly through out the games?
Any additional advise is really appreciated! Thank You So Much!
