My son (10 years old) was diagnosed at the end of May this year (the last week of school). Because he was diagnosed with only two days left of school left, he did not return to school. We moved over the summer and he started to attend a new school, we are going into our 5th month of being back in school with the new diagnosis and my husband and I are just curious as to how some of you parents handle working full time and having a young child with T1D in school?
We are asking because there have been times we’d had to leave work to go pick him up due to his Glucose levels and him not feeling well or many calls from the school nurse to go over numbers, dosage approval for corrections, etc. Luckily I am blessed to have a job that so far has been very flexible and understanding, my husband not so much. We wonder how most of you manage keeping a full time job and caring for a child with T1D, any tips or suggestions? We are just wondering if in the future one of us may have to consider going part time or staying home. Feedback is appreciated.
