It's slow this time of year for chats. We hope to have lots more, though. These conference chats do occur monthly. Their purpose is to discuss upcoming CWD events, answer people's questions about them, make buddies prior to the conferences, etc. We have some new programs in 2006, including a soccer camp, a teen adventure in Colorado, and a young adult weekend in San Francisco.

Hey MommaBagel  Smile 

Mike, we have a conference next month in Philly, which is probably as close as we'll get to New England. All of our events are listed online: http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/activities/

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 18, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.251) Thu Feb 16 09:04:52 PM EST 2006
Yep, I had to go make popcorn (throw a bag in the microwave--hard mom work) for Tim. He's finally over his stomach bug and needs to regain the 4 pounds he lost.

Registered User Meghan T1 since 1984  (72.255.21.17) Thu Feb 16 09:06:35 PM EST 2006
I can't make popcorn, Brenda...it burns.

I'm afraid popcorn is one thing I just don't do well. Unless it's microwave. Neal is a great popcorn maker.

So - on to business... Welcome to the Conferences/Events Chat! Anything relating to CWD events is fair game for discussion...

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 18, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.251) Thu Feb 16 09:08:44 PM EST 2006
Well, we got a new microwave in Dec. and it makes great popcorn. This thing has so many features, I don't think I'll ever use them all. Kathryn prefers the
"soften" button for ice cream. I like to use it to soften cream cheese. You push Soften, then 1 for cream cheese, 2 for whatever and 3 for ice cream. Way too complicated for me.

Some good news to start with. For those folks coming to Philadelphia next month... we have sold out our room block three times. I keep extending it, and the rooms keep getting reserved... this will be our biggest regional conference yet. And - wonderfully - half the participants are brand new to CWD! That makes me very happy because they will get to meet the other half of you who have been around CWD for a long time and can be so helpful and supportive!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Moderator, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (69.19.14.15) Thu Feb 16 09:11:02 PM EST 2006
Yes, there are. Navy and white, if you want to plan your outfits. You can wear your STAFF shirt, though, if you'd prefer, since you'll be working with the elementary group.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Moderator, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (69.19.14.15) Thu Feb 16 09:11:34 PM EST 2006
Over 40 teens for Philly right now. Big group. Again, half are new.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 18, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.251) Thu Feb 16 09:12:38 PM EST 2006
Looks like Marissa will be done finals in time to go to Philly. Last exam is that Fri. a.m. School is on quarters so she's then on Spring Break.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Moderator, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (69.19.14.15) Thu Feb 16 09:13:02 PM EST 2006
For anyone interested, CWD will likely hold a young adults weekend in New York City next year. I have a proposal in hand... and emails from lots of young adults (college age, 18-25 or so) who would like to participate. So, I'm trying to make it happen. Stay tuned.

Mike, maybe you could volunteer to be a chaperone? I don't mean to be rude, but how old are you these days? I don't think you're young enough for the 18-25 group.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Moderator, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (69.19.14.15) Thu Feb 16 09:15:25 PM EST 2006
Yes, but lots of new friends will be there - he'll have a blast. I know Jesse - that boy will not sit in a corner.

So - here's some hot news (if you're a teen). I've had quite a few emails from the teens asking if the Teen Dinner Dance on Friday (from 8- midnight) could be 'semi-formal' (i.e., wear a nice party dress if you'd like, but you don't have to). I'm leaning toward 'yes' - what do you all think? As long as it's not mandatory? The teens really do like to dress up.

Registered User Pam L mom of Sarah, 13, dx 6/19/06  (71.198.2.253) Thu Feb 16 09:17:31 PM EST 2006

The guys don't have to do a big dress-up thing (although Sam wants to wear a white tux). Anything but jeans and cut-offs and tees is ok. The girls are really the ones who like to go all-out, and I think we should let them.

Hi Sue - We have an entire gluten free menu for the conference. A separate buffet table and separate cooking vessels/utensils so no cross-contamination. CWD's dietitian Mike Schurig is in charge of it for all conferences.

Sue, Laura has arranged for separate tables of gluten-free foods for the past several conferences. And, she always has the carb counts listed, too.

I sat in the back for Lion King. Have orchestra seats for Wicked.  Grin 

Re the Young Adult program. We do not have chaperones. We have staff accompanying and leading the program. Medical staff as well. The purpose is to have a fun weekend wherever we are - sightsee, do active things outdoors if the weather permits, eat at some great places, see some shows if that's what people want to do.

Sue - very little room left. Today, I had space for about 10 families, and I know three mailed forms. The hotel still has a few rooms left. Please fax me your registration this weekend if you are certain you want to come. And make sure you note on the form that you require gf diet (there's a place for it - lots of people have special diets).

We aren't doing the matching up of families this year - but we are doing a personal welcome when a new family registers, and we follow up to see if they have questions and how we might help. The First-Timers session on Weds afternoon is going to be much better organized this year. I'm expecting about 400 people (I learned from last year). Lots of food. Tables around the perimeter with the kids program staff so families can match faces to names, etc.

Julia - You will be at the registration 24/7. We will set up a cot for you. Practice your greetings and your "Julia Wave." Except I thought it was "Hi All Y'All"

Bernadette Tull and Adriana Rodenheiser will be with you all the time in registration as well. You're in charge, though, so yes, you get the first greet.

Martyn is 18. He'll be leading the young adult group with Marissa. They are already planning the Friday night shindig at City Walk. As 18+ participants register, I am sending Marissa their email contacts so she can write to them about the program this summer and make sure they all feel welcome and know what is going on. We will have a LOT of young adults over the next few years as our teens grow up!

There really aren't too many smokers in our group, ahem, Stacey (we need to bug you and get you to quit  Razz ).

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Moderator, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (69.19.14.25) Thu Feb 16 09:53:44 PM EST 2006
Jeff always has a stash of blank squares for people who want to decorate them at home. In Philly, we're aiming to have several dozen blank squares for families to decorate right on site. I've emailed the Philly list explaining this, and asking people to bring iron on transfers to move things along. Of course, you may bring your quilt square home to finish it. The point is to have a wonderful square that reflects your child and your family, and that tells a story to all those who view it. It's a powerful thing.

NO! The hotel is having a great deal of trouble with their reservation systems when you call the 800 number. Call the 407 number and you will talk directly with the hotel, and they will give you a reservation. There are 400 double/double rooms in our block, and as of this weekend, about a third of them are reserved.

We are going to get lots of people to make quilts...we're campaigning heavily at the CWD Chat and last night at the DTF Chat too

The Renaissance Orlando Resort: 407-351-5555. If you have trouble, request Carol Martin. She is in charge of our group reservations. The problem is that the hotel took all the double double rooms offline, so no one else but our group can reserve them. That doesn't show up when someone calls the 800 number - the doubles just all look taken (which they are, by CWD). It's a stupid glitch in the system which they know about, but can't seem to fix. Very frustrating. I hope that people will call me if they have difficulty with reservations.

Stacey ... Marissa has also asked to update her quilt. I guess it will be OK.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 18, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.251) Thu Feb 16 10:04:41 PM EST 2006
Oooh, I know that one Stacey. No, he's stuck with the old one. "There are no provisions to update your quilt." That's exactly what he told Marissa about a week ago. Not even Marissa can switch her quilt ("mine's ugly" Yep, I made it, not Marissa.)

heh ... I guess Brenda and I should get our stories straight.

I'd prefer no updates to quilts -- they represent a point in time.

Check the BG every 2 hours or so, esp. if there are ketones. You need to check for them, even if Emily is in range or low.

Registered User Ellen (FL) Zack 18, contributor: QUILT FOR LIFE  (205.188.116.73) Thu Feb 16 10:06:21 PM EST 2006
chefmom, often as you can and you have to check for ketones. Do you have a precision xtra meter? dehydration and ketones can come on fast and furious. Have you spoken with her doctor? She can have normal or low blood sugar and ketones.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Thu Feb 16 10:06:37 PM EST 2006
one or the other..also dehydration..make sure you check ketones chefmom

With a stomach bug, I'd check Sam every hour through the night. If bg drops and you can't keep carbs down, consider a glucagon minidose. Also, check for ketones. They can happen with illness, in the absence of high bgs. If there are ketones present, you need to give insulin and fluid to counteract.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 18, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.251) Thu Feb 16 10:08:02 PM EST 2006

Registered User Ellen (FL) Zack 18, contributor: QUILT FOR LIFE  (205.188.116.73) Thu Feb 16 10:08:36 PM EST 2006
Chefmom, it's very important that you phone the ped endo - this can be considered an emergency.

Registered User Ellen (FL) Zack 18, contributor: QUILT FOR LIFE  (205.188.116.73) Thu Feb 16 10:08:53 PM EST 2006
They can tell you if they want you to go to the ER to get her hooked up with an IV.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Thu Feb 16 10:09:03 PM EST 2006
I would call the endo...after checking ketones..they would help you with the insulin doses ...

Registered User chef mom,nurse mom mom of emily; 12 dxd 16 months lantus novolog  (69.115.207.139) Thu Feb 16 10:09:03 PM EST 2006

I'd call if you see no improvement in the next couple of hours. They don't really seem to care until your child has mod. or large ketones, is still puking, etc.

Registered User Stacey mom to Jesse dx.12/05/01.... pumping 4/03  (152.163.100.130) Thu Feb 16 10:09:32 PM EST 2006
lollipos are also a good way to get carbs into her... either that or a teaspoon of real soda every 10 minutes.. it doesnt really hit her stomach, but will keep BS up..

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 18, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.251) Thu Feb 16 10:10:05 PM EST 2006
Don't they often recommend flat or room temp. soda?

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Thu Feb 16 10:10:53 PM EST 2006
yep they do Brenda..actually my endo said even when high and fighting ketones almost better to go with diet soda over water....she claimed less chance of it coming back up..

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 18, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.251) Thu Feb 16 10:11:25 PM EST 2006
Hmm, just realized I have neither lollipops or reg. soda anywhere. Trying to get the kids to drink less soda. I do have one bottle of Powerade left from Timothy's stomach bug over the weekend. I will go hide it asap for the next emergency.

Registered User Ellen (FL) Zack 18, contributor: QUILT FOR LIFE  (205.188.116.73) Thu Feb 16 10:12:46 PM EST 2006
That's interesting because Zack hardly drinks soda but absolutely craves Diet Coke when bg is high.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Moderator, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (69.19.14.28) Thu Feb 16 10:14:09 PM EST 2006
With vomiting and diarrhea - especially repeatedly - the concern really is dehydration, which can lead to DKA very quickly. It's nothing to fool with. If the vomiting and diarrhea have stopped, see if you can get some fluids back into her. If they haven't stopped, definitely call the endo, who might consider the ER for IV hydration. I hope you are able to test blood ketones - that is a key piece of information right now.

There was an article in the latest issue of Diabetic Medicine about the importance of blood glucose testing.

http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1464-5491.2005.01771.x

I'm surprised more doctors don't push the use of the Precision Xtra for that purpose
