I spoke today to Arden’s classmates. They were wondering why Arden leaves class so often. The children were a fantastic audience and they enjoyed learning more about Arden. Arden showed the class her pump and I explained a little about sugar in a person’s blood and how insulin releases it.
At the end of the day we all just wanted Arden’s classmates to be comfortable and I think what we did today went a long way toward that goal. Hopefully, as the years go on and as more kids learn about type I Arden and her pump will be as normal as recess.
