This video was sent to me this morning via email from a Type 1 mom in my area. I suppose this is yet another reason why parents are working so hard to teach their diabetic children how to be advocates for their disease. This is a scary situation, thank goodness it ended well. Low blood sugars are something you just can't mess with. It seems this situation turned into a positive learning experience for the school (and hopefully the cook) and now they are that much more qualified to help their Type 1 students.
That being said, I can't say I am not bugged that this situation happened in the first place just because this is such a personal issue for us. I honestly don't think I would have made Sydney write a letter of apology to the cook. I would have had Sydney write a letter explaining why she needed those fruit snacks and what the consequences could have been without treating her low blood sugar. Education is the key.
What are your thoughts on this video and the situation?
