Facilitating independence with diabetes management in the pre-teen years is causing me much anxiety.
Joe was at an overnight hockey camp last weekend. Camp involved multiple on-ice sessions, a water park visit, and foods Joe does not typically eat. He spent the night in a condo with 4 of his hockey peers and a "condo" (chaperone) dad. I stayed in a hotel close by. I slumbered with my phone in my hand and a watchful eye on the Dexcom Share.
Here is a texting sequence that went down on the first night of camp. His ability to use the CAPS LOCK button was comforting.
A vulnerable day-in-the-life.
