Jason and I haven't had a get away since either of their diagnoses. Time, money, and being scared to leave the kids alone have kept us at home. That ends today! We are getting away for a few days, just the 2 of us. We are headed to the state lifeguard games. Jason is the coach of one of the teams competing, and I'm just along for the ride.
Prep for a trip has really changed since type 1 diabetes entered our lives. I have checked and rechecked supplies. Josh has had a refresher on glucagon, just in case. Supplies, snacks, and low treatments have been packed for Jason. We have a small cooler for insulin so it can stay cool on the trip.
I'm a little nervous about being gone, but my boys take great care of each other. Seth self-manages incredibly well, and Josh is excellent back-up for him. We have one neighbor that is type 1, and several that are nurses. So off we go for a few days of fun at the guard games!
