Registered User Jeff Hitchcock Marissa, 20, dx'd 9/1989  (216.68.227.35) Wed Apr 02 09:07:14 PM EST 2008
Stacey -- Yes, we've spoken with almost all of our sponsors. Some are somewhat anxious, which is to be expected. Some are very excited. Each of these companies is committed to make a difference in the lives of families living with diabetes, and we are eager to continue to work with all of them.

Registered User Rita Mom to Colleen, dx'd 10/97  (205.188.116.66) Wed Apr 02 09:07:24 PM EST 2008

Re: FFL differences - this year, probably not a lot that will be evident. More people, but the venue is still the same size, so there is a limit. In future years, though, we will be able to expand the FFL conference into larger space. I am expecting 800-1,000 First Timers this year. Very exciting!

I have a dumb question....... Will CWD still be run by you 2 exclusively... or will J & J try to take over and run things?? I'd hate for the familyness to disappear..

Registered User Pam L. Mom of Sarah, 15  (24.6.102.11) Wed Apr 02 09:14:42 PM EST 2008

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux Sam, 18, dx'd 8/98  (76.234.129.201) Wed Apr 02 09:14:57 PM EST 2008
Rita - your question reminds me that as I was reviewing the families who have registered so far for FFL, there are a handful who have been to every single one since 2000. Amazing.

Registered User Jeff Hitchcock Marissa, 20, dx'd 9/1989  (216.68.227.35) Wed Apr 02 09:15:39 PM EST 2008
Stacey -- CWD is a stand alone company within the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Franchise. We will have our own people, budget, etc. We'll bring on more people to help us to do more, both online and at conferences.

And yes Rita, I'm still sending out the Sunday What's New emails.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux Sam, 18, dx'd 8/98  (76.234.129.201) Wed Apr 02 09:17:58 PM EST 2008
Those are good questions - I'm sure Jeff will answer officially. The short Laura answer is that I am very comfortable in our 'new home.' I would not personally have moved forward with something I was not entirely ok with. Jeff and I have always kept the CWD kids and families as Priority #1, and that's where everyone still is.
And - still no vacations for Jeff. At least vacations that include Sunday. Cool 

Registered User Rita Mom to Colleen, dx'd 10/97  (205.188.116.66) Wed Apr 02 09:18:00 PM EST 2008

Registered User Jeff Hitchcock Marissa, 20, dx'd 9/1989  (216.68.227.35) Wed Apr 02 09:18:18 PM EST 2008
Stacey, I've made a committment to ensure that CWD remains focused on our families. That is and always will be our mission.

You have my promise that CWD will remain an independent, objective voice. If you see otherwise, let me know personally.

Holly - Take a look at the conferences and see if you can possibly get to one. One of the HUGE positives is that the kids spend the weekend together and come away with friends that they will keep for a long time. Technology (email, texting, etc.) makes that possible. At our summer conference, there are literally 200-300 kids in each age group. In the regionals, it's more like 20-30 or so in each age group. That's still a lot if you've never met another child with type 1!

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux Sam, 18, dx'd 8/98  (76.234.129.201) Wed Apr 02 09:23:26 PM EST 2008
I know - lots of chats! We want to be available to answer questions, though. Change can be a little scary! And tomorrow night is just our 'usual' FFL group! You bringing the pie?

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper, quilt square number 488  (76.98.188.210) Wed Apr 02 09:23:51 PM EST 2008
Holly..Okay, I have been to both conferances...and have to say the FFL conferances are AWESOME, can be a little overwhelming but that's why they do the first timers thing....and then you have the regionals which are much smaller...but they generally focus on one subject....

Registered User Holly Alex's (8) mom  (67.38.8.224) Wed Apr 02 09:23:58 PM EST 2008
Is the FFL sold out this year? I thought I read in the forum the hotel is sold out? I keep watching air fares...

The HOTEL is sold out, not the conference. We have overflow housing at the Residence Inn down the street, and the info to make reservations is right there on the conference home page: http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/activities/orlando2008/ You should make reservations soon, though. The overflow housing is getting close to full. Then we will work on Overflow Housing #2.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux Sam, 18, dx'd 8/98  (76.234.129.201) Wed Apr 02 09:28:31 PM EST 2008
And we will run shuttles between any overflow housing and the convention center at the Renaissance Orlando Resort. We have 100 rooms at the Residence Inn - so you won't be there alone!

Registered User Colleen B Mom of Ben, Shane and Jill  (148.177.1.211) Wed Apr 02 09:29:05 PM EST 2008

Laura- Wow! We are a first time family attending and I have to say the number of people is as exciting as it is intimidating!! Don't worry though, it certainly wont change our plans.

The Residence Inn is 1/2 mile from the Renaissance. You can't walk it, though. No sidewalk and lots of traffic. Also, I would suggest to people in overflow housing that they keep checking back with the Renaissance. People do cancel!

Dr. Moritsugu - the former Acting U.S. Surgeon General - will be at the conference this year. So will many of our other very favorite speakers! Check out the home page - a lot of the Special Guests are featured on the right side.

Rita, the JJDI's focus is on professional education while CWD's focus is on the family. We all do our part to make a difference.

Registered User Jeff Hitchcock Marissa, 20, dx'd 9/1989  (216.68.227.35) Wed Apr 02 09:32:55 PM EST 2008
Rita -- yes, I know, Brenda will always be the real boss.

Registered User Rita Mom to Colleen, dx'd 10/97  (205.188.116.66) Wed Apr 02 09:33:14 PM EST 2008
but seriously - that is great for you Jeff - I think it is a great combination - so often Colleen will tell me you don't understand you don't have d. so now there is the parent and the person with d talking in the same place.

Registered User TJIrvin mom of Madi, 3, dx @18months  (75.121.115.2) Wed Apr 02 09:34:18 PM EST 2008
Jeff-Is there any focus on educating the general public, it seems there is a lot of ignorance regarding D, and the media often does not help the matter.

Registered User Rita Mom to Colleen, dx'd 10/97  (205.188.116.66) Wed Apr 02 09:34:42 PM EST 2008
I think CWD can help with professional education - think of all the posts from parents -- I remember taking repsonses from the list to my endo to "teach" him

Rita - It will be interesting to see... as our kids grow and become young adults... and we still (as parents) want to learn more. That almost begs a different kind of session, doesn't it? We are still parents of kids with diabetes... but our kids are adults themselves!

And it's worth noting that the CWD Foundation was a significant shareholder in Diabetes123 (CWD's previous parent company) and will be receiving a considerable amount of money from the sale.

Chris - I remember 10 years ago when Sam was dx'd. We got home from the hospital, and I got online on CWD (our CDE had given me a card). I sent a message to the Friends list (I didn't know about the parents email list). Within 10 minutes, a handful of people had written to me. And within the hour, probably 25 had written to me. The message was so comforting: You are going to be ok. It's exactly what I needed to hear. I eventually met some of those same people face to face!

YES! FFL is booked in Orlando through 2015. Seriously. We are also seriously considering a FFL in Europe. Stay tuned on that - working on it.

I have a nostalgic photo of --a then 3-year-old Ben -- at the 2002 Pasadena conference in the arms of a costume insulin pen. He was obsessed with that pen!

Registered User Brenda   (216.68.227.35) Wed Apr 02 10:05:59 PM EST 2008
He was so cute as a short haired blond child. Now, at 13, his hair is too long (don't get me going on this argument) and he's mouthy.

Registered User Brenda   (216.68.227.35) Wed Apr 02 10:06:37 PM EST 2008
We've never called him Timmy, but he doesn't get upset when others do. It's a normal nickname.

Isn't that a male thing Brenda, I work with 10 of them and they're all that way(mouthy) Wink

Hello, Have a quick ?. My son went low this afternoon 37, Now he is sleeping blood sugar 270. Should I treat the low or just watch it. Usally I would treat it but since he went really low today it scares me.
