First, let me say that the picture on this entry has nothing to do with today’s entry... I just wanted to show it to everyone.
Arden is going to buy lunch today at school!!! What a big day this is for us and a good reminder of how type I effects things that you’d never imagine. Here’s is what we had to do to make this day happen.
We had to get the complete and comprehensive list of nutritional values for every food that the district will serve this year. That took some doing, the highlight for me was when one of the cafeteria people told me that it was difficult to get me the list because she was, “so busy making all of the food for the normal kids”. I let that one go right by, chalked it up to not thinking... I didn’t read any malice in the comment at the time and in retrospect, I still don’t. Never-the-less her words did ding my soul just a little.
Then Arden had to get comfortable, the nurses needed to get comfortable and I needed to get comfortable - we all needed to get comfortable enough for us to make this leap. May sound odd or overprotective but it’s not, it’s just how things are. So today at 1:30pm I will be in the nurses office for Arden’s pre-lunch BG check and then she and I will go together to the cafeteria and get her some lunch... just like the “normal” kids.
