Thanks, Beth. I seem to have grown up in the last week! I like the big title, too... but really, I'm still a regular CWD mom like all of you. That's the important title, right?  Smile

Hey Julia! I looked at the calendar on Monday and did a double-take when I realized the conference is just 2 1/2 months away. I remember - 10 months out - emailing Jeff and saying 'ok it's time to schedule the first chat for next year!'

Me? I don't work for the J & J people so I guess my only title is "Chief Cook and Bottle Washer!" Last week, Jeff thought I could open a business as a "Handywoman" because we were putting up pilasters on our house (trim that goes near the front door--replaced rotting wood with urethane). I also do 99% of the yard work and have done some exterior painting this spring, too. Not enough hours in the day...

It's also ok to email me if you can't figure it out. My email is laura.billetdeaux@childrenwithdiabetes.com

Darn it Julia! Marissa was here for dinner and I didn't think to take a pic of her for the collage. Maybe I will send the other two kids' pics tomorrow and hope I remember to get a pic of Marissa. She got about 12 inches of hair cut off for the Pantene "Kindest Cut of All" program. Looks cute.

You teens are going to have so much fun! Sessions all day at the Marriott World Center on Thursday - and then off to Islands of Adventure on Friday! These are 'just teen' days - your parents are in their own sessions.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 20, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.35) Wed May 07 09:12:07 PM EDT 2008
Yep, Laura, he did. Somehow, I scraped the outside part of my right wrist today when I was out planting/fertilizing. I felt pain and saw what looked like a "scrape." I must have bumped the fence because I had about 25 small splinters sticking out of my skin. Still have about 12 left--too small to remove.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98  (76.226.137.232) Wed May 07 09:12:33 PM EDT 2008
That's a good idea, Rhon. There is so much info to sift through. At the first timer hospitality area this year (which will be adjacent to registration), we will have 'suggested sessions' for people interested in certain topics. So, if you are brand new to diabetes, we'll have a Diabetes 101 suggested list. If you're just interested in new technology, we'll have a suggested list for that. And so on.

Registered User Julia a2angelmom...Ethan and Hannah's Mom  (64.12.116.66) Wed May 07 09:12:46 PM EDT 2008

Brenda, use the removing-cactus-thorns trick - spread a layer of Elmer's Glue over it, let it dry, and then pull it off. That usually gets a lot of the invisible ones. Sounds like a nice big ouch

Good question about the focus groups on Weds. Yes, every person in the group needs to be registered, even if it is a child. The reason for this is that there is a max number of people per room. Children are people and they count towards this number. Please note that if the topic does not indicate it's a session for families, it probably isn't appropriate for kids. You can always get on the Orlando2008 email list and see if one of the teens or young adults wants to help out with sitting.

Islands of Adventure on Friday for the teens is free. The day is sponsored by Sanofi-Aventis. So, they actually bought all of the tickets and lunch vouchers. Very generous! Now... on Friday you will put into practice all that you learn on Thursday!

Sure. There are lots of teens who like to babysit. It's just too much to coordinate from my end - much better if people who need to find a sitter just ask the group and find one that way.

Re: Focus Groups... unless it is a family-friendly session (for example, educational tools, or tasting products or something like that), it's much better to have the kids elsewhere so that you can actually pay attention to the focus group interaction. Focus groups are small. They rely on everyone's thoughts and contributions. It's hard to do that when you've got half an eye on the kids.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98  (76.226.137.232) Wed May 07 09:22:20 PM EDT 2008

The whim of the moment. At times she is NOT a girly girl by any means (Usually when you smell her coming from the stables). Other times she can't have enough clothes & dresses & skirts. And then she tends to outgrow things way too fast!

Beth - Some of the focus groups fill up because the person leading the group only wants 5-6 participants. They are really after in-depth conversation. We are not keeping waiting lists - that would be too crazy to manage. But, you can show up the morning of the group and see if there is space. Sometimes there are no-shows.

Sometimes people sign up for several focus groups, then, when they get there, they realize they can't be two places at once, so they choose and one opening pop ups for someone else.

Wasfa and Darcy (and any other first-timers) - no need to be nervous with us. There will be 800+ first timers at the conference this year, which is amazing. We are all family. Just think of it as a GIANT family reunion! I know some of you online are bringing grandparents... Bruce and Rachele (who were online earlier) are grandparents who will be serving as 'hosts' of the grandparents group. You can ask them anything!

I wish I could get my kids' grandparents to come. I think they would be so much more comfortable with Meghan staying with them, especially my MIL. FIL has T2, so he kinda gets it but the pump and CGM throw him for a loop.

Oy! PLEASE don't sign up for two focus groups at the same time. The only way you'd be able to do that this year - with the online sign up - is if you submitted two forms. If you do that, I will have to send Jesse and his cast after you...  LOL

Cheese and beer. Next year, you pick the menus!
Seriously, pretty much the same menu each day for breakfast (we find something that works, get good carb counts on it, and keep it).

I saw it go by, Wendy. Colleen is the person who processes them, and she's out of town for a few days. She'll catch up and get the notices out as soon as she's back. It wasn't good planning on our part to launch the sign-up and say "You'll hear from us within 72 hours" when the person in charge of scheduling was leaving town! Sorry bout that.

Food Dude will be there in his glory! (that is CWD's Dietitian Mike Schurig for those of you who don't know). Sunday morning is the Farewell Breakfast. Time to say goodbye, exchange emails and phone #'s... and if you are sticking around for a few days, hang by the pool. It's a pretty fun day. One year on Sunday, didn't Jim Vail lead Water Aerobics in the pool all day? That was a hoot!

Diabetes always seems to be changing, doesn't it? Sam is 18, and we still modify things all the time. It's different with a little one, though, because they can't tell you. You're doing exactly the right thing connecting with families on CWD. When Sam was dx'd, those families were my lifeline. Still are.

Jen try to relax in a comfortable spot at home each day and practice relaxation techniques while envisioning flying being a wonderfully fun and gentle adventure. Then when you get on the flight, hopefully you can practice the same relaxation/breathing techniques.

They live near Houston. We saw them quite often when we live in Corpus Christi. I think she gets nostalgic for those times. She even told my husband that we should move closer.

How long does it take to get there?

From here, 7 hours flight time. That's what husband's ticket says. He has a direct flight from Anchorage to Houston.

Does anyone know where I can get a 504 Plan for a Jr. High student, not a pumper? ADA site shows pumps and CANADA. Where could get one?

People have gone to bed or are cleaning up after dinner. Many people have moved to the parents chat room. :)
