Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

Packing for Rosie's first d-camp

It's time... tomorrow we drop Rosie off at a week-long Type I camp.  She is SOOO excited, and I'm SO nervous, LOL!  I know she's in good hands, especially since her own Endo will be there.  I just have to let go and trust that God will take care of her.  Easier said than done!

I've been surfing a bit today as we get things ready, looking for any tips or tricks that we need to know about D-camp.   I found a great post: Moira McCarty's story:  Diabetes camp: It truly saved us.  about how much diabetes camp helped her family.  I really needed to read that today, so I'm sharing here in case you do, too!

  1. Oh I hope it's going well. I bet she's having so much fun! You're so brave---we've only done day camp! AND I was still nervous!!


Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
