That will be great! I don't usually get to volunteer. I'm a single mom and I can't bear to miss a single session.

well I will be there at least a day before the conference starts so hopefully we can meet up before hand and she will be more comfortable
my husband works with the teens and I work with the tweens

Since your son has CD, be sure to attend Dr. Fasano's lectures if you can. I've been following his research for years and I really believe he is onto something. He thinks that for some genetiallly prone individuals, the leaky gut from CD is triggering the T1D. Even if CD was not diagnosed until after the diabetes.

Mary Catherine, it is the ultralink, it replaces the BD one for minimed pumps and uploads bg's to the pump

I don't want to take a chance with moving the kids in the middle of the school year... figure if I get there by the end of June I have a month to make them comply with Brandon's IEP and food requirements. I called when we got orders and they said silly what? I said celiac and she said what is that? so I figured it was best to wait until the summer

Ah, We're using the Cosmo with the attached Freestyle. Personally I like the software on the One Touch but I won't give up the Cosmo.

I don't know about the Freestyle so much... Brandon doesn't like it, Rhiannon gets frustrated with it, but I paid for 1200 test strips so she has to use them up

If you're going on the cosmo, you can use them on the attached meter. It works OK but uploading data to the PC is sometimes difficult.

that is awesome numbers... Brandon's average is still 150-170 depending upon the last day... he is just all over the place lately... he was "LO" on the meter then 337 then 28 ... just last weekend for no reason.
I tried getting him Boost but he stays high for hours after drinking one.

I will try the attached meter but he loved the original bd meter and he loves his one touch meters so I think it is just a hard transition

Hi Jeffrey. Brandy never used the stand alone Freestyle. As meters go, not to bad. Fewer errors than the One Touch. But the best thing is that readings go right into the pump which can then calculate how many carbs or how big a bolus you need instantly.

Registered User Lisa (KS) Paige's Mom, dxd 10/06  (70.244.222.182) Wed Feb 06 08:52:56 PM EST 2008

The Renaissance is 80% full right now - there are only about 60 rooms left in the hotel... and then we will be in overflow space. We have the entire hotel reserved for CWD (with the exception of a few airline rooms) - so if you haven't made reservations yet, please do that asap!

Hotel updates - well, for those who were with us at the Renaissance in 2006, the rooms have been entirely re-done. Everything is brand new. The restaurants have been redone and have larger capacity. There is a new sushi restaurant on the main floor (where the fish used to be.... ummmm....) The pool area is the same. Brand new BIG spa for those who enjoy those spa-type things... and a really nice, new, large fitness area with some great equipment. The whole place is so much nicer than 2 years ago (and 2 years ago it wasn't bad). I just wish there were more rooms.

The fancy restaurant should be re-opened - as something. They aren't sure what. We will have grab-n-go meals (sandwiches, salads and such) on Weds so the restaurants don't get so backed up. Remember the pool bar has some decent food, too, for 'hanging out' times.

Laura, your hotel remarks just made me think of something - are any of the menu items fish/seafood related? We just learned (after trip to ER) that Brett has seafood allergy.

Brandy - Email me tomorrow and we'll have a conversation about gf food at the hotel. The short answer is 'yes.' There will be a LOT of folks who require gf food on site, and the restaurants will accommodate. We'll bring Mike Schurig into the conversation tomorrow - he is CWD's dietitian and knows the details of these things.

Marissa wants a new quilt. She bought fabric for it three years ago. I told her she's in charge of making this one. Of course, she doesn't own a sewing machine, so the fabric is here somewhere collecting dust. Maybe by the time she's 25 she'll find the time to make it. LOL

I hope the restaurants are better than they were the last time. They kept us waiting for an hour and then said they had no idea whether anything had gluten in it. We had a delicious but expensive steak with no problems though.

There is fish on the dinner menu Thursday - but there also are lots of other items. Sam is allergic to shellfish... other people are allergie to nuts, dairy, fruit, pork, etc. We always can accommodate. If someone has a severe allergy - we can plate your food and just bring it straight to you from the kitchen (to be sure there are not contaminants). They do this all the time.

Fortunately, we don't have to worry about gluten, but Marissa's decided that she prefers a mostly vegetarian lifestyle. She just eats the side dishes when she's home for dinner, which is very rare these days.

Focus groups are smaller educational sessions and discussion groups that go on all day Wednesday. They are usually held by our sponsors and they usually have something to do with the sponsors' products. Not always, though. We'll have about 40 different groups on Wednesday. Some will be for teens and kids, most will be for adults. They are a great opportunity to spend some time with the people who make the products we all use.

Anyone who went to Marco Island should have sunscreen to bring. We got a bunch donated and it was cold and no one really needed it.

Two years ago at Sea World was so incredibly hot. I think that is the worst it has been. Those of you who stayed all day- and all evening to see the fireworks - were real troopers! I like Universal Studios because there are shows as well as rides, and you can go inside and cool off!

Betty - Sorry Shelby is so sick. NO fun. I hope she feels better soon! We can discuss volunteering later. The ECWDF scholarship families need to have the first volunteer slots allocated to them, as that is part of the agreement when one gets a scholarship. Not sure that we will need many volunteers this year. We definitely will need room captains, though (this is a person who is responsible for the room/sessions for a whole day; this includes introducing the speakers, etc.).

Betty, we have always had to give extra insulin to get rid of ketones, we have used powdered jello or gingerale to get the sugar up enough to give large bolus of insulin to flush out the ketones

That's a good question, Teresa. Kids really do need to stay with their age group. Why don't you email me privately and we can discuss what concerns you. Ok?

Zippora will be working with the kids - she won't be speaking with the adults. However, if she isn't in a children's session during the Meet the Athletes panel, she will join them.

Renee - No special teen address - just send the note to the Orlando2008@childrenwithdiabetes.com list (everyone who is registered for the conference is on that list). And ask who is coming early, has teens, and would like to do something on whatever day you have in mind.
