The school nurse at X school in Barrington reported to a parent that she intended to keep the diabetic child “a little high” in order to avoid lows. Because she’d rather avoid the danger/urgency of a low than contribute to the child’s long-term health by avoiding a high. I hate this. Our school’s nurse will be better. If I were a school nurse and a diabetic child came into my care, I would just quit my job.
Daily Scoop’s scooper said a small consists of three ounces of ice cream. No. It was at least ten ounces. It was chocolate ice cream streaked with globs of peanut butter cookie dough. That’s a stupid afternoon snack.
Here are things I did like today: I had coffee with a good friend in the morning; the boys played in the YMCA pool for 75 minutes with a yellow water polo ball and didn’t fight at all and looked so healthy and strong; also I liked the green beans and tempeh I made for dinner. Fried in coconut oil and had a brown rice syrupy sauce.
