Tonight Maddison mentioned to me that Ms S had her sit on the wall for half of morning recess. Why? Because Maddison "interrupted" individual reading testing when telling her teacher that she felt low and needed to go to the nurse. Yep. Not surprised. First of all, Maddison has been taught to ALWAYS-NO-MATTER-WHAT get to the nurse if you feel low. If you have to interrupt, ask 5 times, demand or walk out, GET THERE. It's okay to go against what a teacher tells you if your blood sugar is at risk. Period. Sad that we have to teach our kids this, but people just dont understand that a plummeting blood sugar cant wait. Thank goodness Maddison is getting closer to treating herself in the classroom next year! This is the kind of stuff I've been dealing with all year with this teacher.
So, Ms S did let Maddison go to the nurse right away this morning. At 9:20am my cell phone rang at work. We have a substitute nurse this week, and she was instructed to call me with any questions. The nurse asked me if I wanted Maddison to have her snack early, her BS was 98 with .6 active. I asked her to give Maddison 2 glucose tabs and let her go to recess. Of course, Ms S had Maddison sit out half of that recess, I assume, as Maddison says. Maddison came back after recess (15min later) and her BS was 136. Nice job catching the low Maddison!
So, I guess I will have to speak with Maddison's teacher tomorrow morning before we head off to her Endo appointment down town. FUN! Why am I always dealing with crazy things this teacher does? I'm so glad this year is nearly at an end. 20 days of school left!
