Diabetes Camp

Bet you're all wondering why I haven't posted anything for so long. It's been a busy summer! Cassie went on her first week away alone from home. She went to summer camp this past month at Camp Coqui in the NC mountains. It's a diabetes camp for 7-16 year olds and has physicians, a crack nursing staff, dieticians and counselors who really understand Type 1 diabetes.

It was a harrowing experience waking up every morning not knowing what her blood sugars were, but the staff and counselors at the camp eased our anxiety. What pros. What a great time for Cassie. I think it really helped her feel very self confident about her own diabetes care (and not so dependent on Mommy and Daddy).

A great program I've discovered in helping Diabetes Type 2 is at a place called Green Mountain at Fox Run. It's in Vermont and runs a diabetes program with it's partner, the Joslin Diabetes Center. It's a healthy weight loss program without dieting and the next one is just coming up November 7th for anyone who interested: http://www.fitwoman.com/diabetes.htm.
