The conferences are great fun - for parents and kids.

Hi Joe  Smile 

T - Lots of stuff happens on Wednesday, particularly the Focus Groups. There are a lot of them posted right now - they each take about 20-30 participants, and it is some wonderful discussion. Here's the link:
http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/activities/orlando2006/focusgroups.htm
Also, if you are going to volunteer during the conference, Tuesday evening is the Volunteer Family Reception (ice cream sundaes poolside - you get your volunteer assignment and t-shirt). It's fun. I suggest coming in late Tuesday if you can swing it.

Oh, I'm sorry that Jesse has been sick. Lots of kids had the flu. Lots of big kids, too (Meghan).
You were a great help in Philly, Stacey. Thanks! And Jesse did a great job on the teen panel. (And Scott did a good job driving)... Rolling Eyes

Laura would you like to tell everyone about the Quilt?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:09:57 PM EST 2006
Depends what you want to walk to. Sea World? Right across the parking lot. Other parks? Rent a car. We're going to rent one just so we don't have to bother with worrying about that aspect.

When the teens go to Island of adventure, do the parents go, or do we have meetings or just go do whatever? And Hello to everyone!

Hi all...made it...still getting kids to bed

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:11:36 PM EST 2006
Hey Bernie  Grin 
I just sent you all the info to welcome the first group of first-timers! We have about 120 families registered right now, and about 25 are first-timers. For those who don't know, Bernie is the 'welcoming committee' for those families joining us for the first time - it can seem pretty big (2,000 people) - and a little scary if you've never been to one. Bernie's job is to help you figure out how to navigate the conference.

Jess really enjoyed the teen panel.. He was sooo nervous before it started.. Do you have the panel in Florida, or just at the regionals??

I once went on the Behind the Scenes tour at Sea World and it was fascinating, we saw the baby penguins in the very cold areas. Some of you may want to arrange to do that. And for the little ones, if you read Mr. Poppers Penguins before going...it's even more fun :-)

Registered User T Mom of Craig, 16, dx'd at 18mths  (12.201.120.105) Tue Mar 28 09:12:49 PM EST 2006

Thanks for the intro, Laura! I got your email... will let you know when I get the stuff you mailed.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:13:47 PM EST 2006
The teens go with a group of chaperones. Parents stay at the convention center and attend their own sessions. We have a dozen chaperones and staff all set. Transportation will be provided by Mears (bus), and entrance tickets and lunch vouchers will be provided for the kids. We'll have a check-in area where kids will need to come (check and report bg) before lunch in order to get their vouchers... and also we'll have 'wandering' staff with meters, glucose, phones, etc. to keep an eye on things. It will be a fun day.

Registered User Heather Vernon BC, mom blessed wth two  (216.113.195.203) Tue Mar 28 09:13:52 PM EST 2006
Laura, can we get info into packages for canadians to meet sometime/somewhere?

Laura- is Scott included in the teen chaperones for the park?? Cause if he isnt, I volunteer him... lol...

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:15:18 PM EST 2006
Ellen - Can you post the link for the Quilt info? The Quilt will be displayed in the Exhibit Hall throughout the conference... better yet, if you get your quilt square in Jeff Hitchcock's hands by May 8, it will be part of a huge display in front of the U.S. Capitol building on June 8 as part of ADA's Call to Congress (we had a wonderful invitation from them to show the quilt during this event).

Registered User T Mom of Craig, 16, dx'd at 18mths  (12.201.120.105) Tue Mar 28 09:15:25 PM EST 2006
What about their pumps while they are at the Island? Is there alot of water activities where they will need to take their pumps off?

Registered User Bernie Trevor's Mum, 16, dx'd at 13  (70.160.204.201) Tue Mar 28 09:15:35 PM EST 2006
Stacey, I must say, I was pretty impressed w/ Jessy's performance on the teen panel. He's becoming more confident. We're proud of him!

Registered User Julia a2angelmom Ethan's mom dx @10mo  (152.163.100.72) Tue Mar 28 09:15:40 PM EST 2006

Scott is a chaperone (you volunteered him already and he said yes!).
Heather - yep, we'll find someplace for the Canadian group to meet on Weds afternoon,

Registered User T Mom of Craig, 16, dx'd at 18mths  (12.201.120.105) Tue Mar 28 09:16:28 PM EST 2006

Registered User Bernie Trevor's Mum, 16, dx'd at 13  (70.160.204.201) Tue Mar 28 09:17:07 PM EST 2006
Hi, Julia! Thanks for the email you sent everyone. I will send Trevor's picture soon.

I'll chaperone Islands on Friday.... Cool 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:17:29 PM EST 2006
Not a lot of big water attractions at the park, so kids should keep their pumps on. There is one real soaker of a ride, and with that one, we'll have a CWD staff person sitting at a shaded table with a cooler, and we'll ask the kids to leave their pumps and meters (in marked plastic bags) so that it doesn't get drenched. There is also one electromagnetic ride - it's a kiddie roller coaster and we'll ask the teens not to go on it.

Registered User jnlmarte mom of Alex, 3 dxd 1 year  (65.33.131.173) Tue Mar 28 09:17:48 PM EST 2006
We have annual passes to Universal and Islands. Alex wears his pump. There are a couple rides that they will get hosed on, but not too many.

Registered User Julia a2angelmom Ethan's mom dx @10mo  (152.163.100.72) Tue Mar 28 09:17:50 PM EST 2006

Fudge is all gone! (what - you thought it might last a whole week?)
No DDR time unless the tween/teen faculty are arranging something I don't know about!

Registered User jnlmarte mom of Alex, 3 dxd 1 year  (65.33.131.173) Tue Mar 28 09:18:56 PM EST 2006
Laura - which ride is that, cuz Alex rides the rides

Since i have a tweener this time...what is DDR???

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:19:26 PM EST 2006
Don't worry about shy. Most kids are shy when they walk in - it doesn't take long before that is over and done with.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:20:05 PM EST 2006
Oh - I don't remember (because it's a little kids ride, and the group we're bringing are teens). It's the mini-coaster.

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (72.255.7.129) Tue Mar 28 09:20:08 PM EST 2006
I lost count of the days, Ellen

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:20:47 PM EST 2006
What a strange question, Julia! You want to know what DDR is so that you can find out what your tweener won't be doing? It's Dance Dance Revolution!  LOL 

Registered User jnlmarte mom of Alex, 3 dxd 1 year  (65.33.131.173) Tue Mar 28 09:20:53 PM EST 2006

Also want to remind everyone that the young adults (ages 18-25 or so) will be going out on FRIDAY evening to CityWalk. They're going to dinner and whatever entertainment venue they'd like at CityWalk - we're providing a shuttle over and back (leaving at 7, returning at 1). Marissa Hitchcock and Martyn Carr are coordinating the group's activities.

Registered User Bernie Trevor's Mum, 16, dx'd at 13  (70.160.204.201) Tue Mar 28 09:23:27 PM EST 2006
As far as pumps go, if you own a Frio cooling pouch, you could put your pump in it while still carrying it on you. We've tried it w/ Trevor for hot days dirtbiking.

Anyone interested in volunteering, please send me a private email: laura.billetdeaux@childrenwithdiabetes.com I have lots of jobs I need help with - everything from helping Julia at registration for a couple hours (you get to meet lots of people) to standing guard over the Fun Run course on Thursday morning to make sure no one goes the wrong way... to chaperoning the Tweener Karaoke Night on Friday (I need 6 chaperones for that... any takers?)!

That was the Philadelphia conference last week, Heather. He should have his head above water, now. It's fine to contact him. btw, the gluten free table went really, really well last weekend. Best we've ever done it, imo. Mike did a great job.

Heather, I bought one for the pump and an elongated one which we use for his insulin pens (+ an extra vial-though it's a tight squeeze. You can't over soak them... or nothing will fit!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:31:51 PM EST 2006
We also tried something in Philly which we are going to carry forward to Orlando. We'll have the kids in Tyvek bracelets Thurs/Fri/Sat. Bright green for those with type 1 (adults can wear them, too, so the kids can see what cool role models you are), bright orange for sibs and friends without type 1, and Mike (CWD dietitian) has suggested that those who need a gluten free diet have a yellow wristband as well - that helps us keep everyone safe. We'll be taking the kids swimming again, and we need to know at a glance which ones have type 1 and which don't. As I said, it worked great in Philly.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper  (71.1.59.222) Tue Mar 28 09:33:13 PM EST 2006
Laura...my only suggestion on the bracelets is if you can get the plastic ones..that would be great...some of those kids removed those suckers so darn fast at the pool...

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:33:16 PM EST 2006
Ellen - Not sure about Dexcom. I've been talking with them, and they don't have an indication for pediatrics, so they aren't sure they can be with us, even though we do have lots and lots of adults with type 1 at the conference. We'll see. Exhibit space is just about sold out - I have all of two booths left.

Hi toof - Please send your friend and her family to the CWD website. I'm glad you found us. There are 26,000+ pages of content on the www.childrenwithdiabetes.com website - and all of us have been in your friend's shoes. You're a good friend to be reading up. In answer to your question, when type 1 diabetes rears its head, the symptoms happen pretty quickly. And if untreated, kids will die without insulin.

This is a chat about CWD conferences... if you're looking to chat about diabetes in general, you might want to switch next door to the parents list.  Smile

You may sign up for the focus groups by looking at the schedule, deciding which ones the different people in your family want to attend, and then emailing me. I keep the master list for each group. The max number per group is 30. Some are already nearly full... and still others haven't listed a topic yet, so more good groups will be opening. Here's the link to the schedule: http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/activities/orlando2006/ParentsSchedule.htm

Laura, the bracelets were a BIG help... we just have to remember not to tie them on too tight because they shrink in the water and I had a lot of kids come back for new ones because they were too snug!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:40:34 PM EST 2006
Allison - No, the conference is at the Renaissance Orlando Resort in Orlando (by Sea World). We cancelled the Century Plaza venue almost a year ago - not enough space for how we have grown.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:43:22 PM EST 2006
Also - in answer to Ellen's question - there are a few focus groups that are specifically targeted for kids. The companies want their input on a variety of topics. Read the blurbs that go with the schedule... they each say if a particular group is specifically for kids, teens, or parents. Focus groups are very worthwhile. You can sign up for 1 or keep your entire day busy with 4. Plus... the companies feed you, which is always nice.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:44:21 PM EST 2006
You don't register for specific sessions... just send in your registration (to me) and I sign up the kids for their particular age groups. Childcare closes at 100 kids. We're at about 25 right now. We're expecting about 200 teens again this year!

Also - and I can't stress this enough - if you have not made your hotel reservations... do it now. The room block is nearly two-thirds full. When the hotel is sold out, it's sold out. Please go online to the conference website for info about how to make hotel reservations. You can't access our conference room block via the regular Marriott phone numbers or website - we have a special reservations system, and you do need to use it.

We have most of the hotel, not all of it. The Renaissance has ongoing contracts with airlines, etc. So some rooms are being held for them. We have over 2000 room nights being held, and we've reserved about 1300 of them as of today. So - don't wait to make a reservation.

Trent was trained on a new pump in Conshohocken. He hasn't commented on it being smaller than that brick of a D-tron he had. But he is very interested in the Insulin on board feature. His numbers have been for sh*t though. I think he's getting sick.

Deb - We're holding a conference in Chicago in September. That's closer to St. Louis than Orlando. Why don't you come to both?  Grin 

Registered User Bernie Trevor's Mum, 16, dx'd at 13  (70.160.204.201) Tue Mar 28 09:50:45 PM EST 2006
I really enjoyed watching the kids and parents design their quilts... it was a nice way for us volunteers to wind down (though clean up was a drag!)

Hey Laura. Did you see my plug for a quilt-making session at future conferences?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:51:02 PM EST 2006

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 09:51:29 PM EST 2006

... and did you see your name by it as 'session leader'...??? Just teasing you. We do need some crafts-minded parents to watch over the Quilt-decorating room at FFL. We'll have one room dedicated to decorating blank quilt squares. Kids need to bring a parent in order to work on their square in that room. If you're interested in staffing this, email me!

Registered User Michelle mom to Trent, 9, dx 6/00  (71.241.149.223) Tue Mar 28 09:53:01 PM EST 2006
Stacey, I was against quilt-making. I thought you couldn't make one in one session. But, you can. Or you can start one and get a good start with input from others.

Wendsy - if you've had a sore throat since last week, do get checked. I know of 3 positive strep cases... which probably isn't any more than in a general population of 400 people, but we know they had it and were among us... so check it out if you are still sick.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 10:00:36 PM EST 2006
Let me add one thing because someone emailed me today about it. Dress code. There isn't one. The conference is very informal. Shorts and t-shirts are fine. Obviously the kids need swimsuits for their pool time with the group. Banquet is a little dressier, but shorts and tees are still fine (some people wear slacks and dresses, but - um - I don't). The one exception is the Teen Dinner Dance on FRIDAY night. That is a dressier event. I know some of the girls will be quite fancy... Sam has a new suit... and on the other end of the spectrum, nice pants and a polo shirt are fine as well. Just no shorts, jeans, or cut-offs. Please share that with your teens.  Smile 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam and Carolyn's mom  (66.82.9.60) Tue Mar 28 10:01:17 PM EST 2006

One thing about the quilt making on site is that we need to stress the importance of securing all the items on permanently (w/ long term use in mind)...

Yes, Bernie. And things can't be too bulky. And the quilts get folded in thirds. So, things shouldn't be at the folding points.

Nice polo and nice shorts are fine. As long as he feels comfortable. It's a 'dress up as much as you want' affair... but definitely don't dress down. I'm a bouncer for that evening - and I'll ask kids to go change! (seriously, it's the teens special evening, fancy dinner, etc.)
