How's everyone doing tonight? I know it's really early to get excited about Orlando, but we're already doing planning... so I'm already excited!

Jeff says Marissa and some friends are driving up to Michigan to visit Kristin and go to the football game this weekend! Marissa doesn't really know much about football. LOL 

Registered User OSUMom Mom of Dean, 19, dx'd at 18 6/06  (24.29.4.11) Tue Sep 19 09:03:36 PM EDT 2006
Are there sessions planned generally for college-aged kids at the conference in Orlando? I don't imagine we will get our son interested in going, but I know my husband and I would enjoy it.

hi

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:03:42 PM EDT 2006
Do any of you have specific questions about the upcoming conferences? We have a lot of events scheduled in the next year, from 'family weekends in SF and NYC' to the biggie in Orlando. And our first vacation/conference in Marco Island...

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:04:34 PM EDT 2006
Brenda - Do they need a place to stay? Or eat dinner? I'd love to have them over. It's Wisconsin this weekend - not a big game (usually) but a fun one.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, dx'd 9/89 at age 2  (216.68.227.252) Tue Sep 19 09:05:08 PM EDT 2006
I don't know of specific plans for the "young adults," but I'm sure Marissa would love to meet Dean. She's 19, soph. at U. of Cincinnati.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:05:11 PM EDT 2006
Yes, we will definitely have college-oriented (we call them young adult) sessions at the Friends for Life conference. Also, many of the regular sessions are very appropriate for young adults.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:05:38 PM EDT 2006
My daughter, Carolyn, will be there. She is 19 as well.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, dx'd 9/89 at age 2  (216.68.227.252) Tue Sep 19 09:05:45 PM EDT 2006
I don't have a clue, Laura, but I'll make sure Marissa has your phone number should she fail to pack any diabetes supplies.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:09:08 PM EDT 2006
OSUMom, please tell your son that there are a LOT of young adults at the conference. He'd make a lot of new friends and have a great time. The young adult group is going to have a dinner on Friday night, and then go out afterwards for a social evening.

Registered User Maureen dx 10/94 pump 4/99  (64.233.197.74) Tue Sep 19 09:09:20 PM EDT 2006

I have noticed Marissa on those photos. She even teaches classes! Right?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:12:11 PM EDT 2006
Hey Intissar! How are you? So good to see you online! How's Ms Maryam? Tell her I finally got that picture from Dr. Bob (the one with us making silly faces)... it's truly gruesome.

Yes, Marissa teaches some of the classes and helps with the elem. school kids. She loves helping others (of course, she NEVER helps me LOL ).

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, dx'd 9/89 at age 2  (216.68.227.252) Tue Sep 19 09:13:21 PM EDT 2006

Maryam is great, we just got back from our support group meeting with Jim and Natalie, so you can imagine how much fun the kids had!

Ah -THAT is why I can't reach Natalie.  Razz  Your family is well? All the kids back in school?

Maureen, my son sees his endo in December here again so wasn't going to get appts with an endo at OSU, but do you think we should?

Registered User OSUMom Mom of Dean, 19, dx'd at 18 6/06  (24.29.4.11) Tue Sep 19 09:16:11 PM EDT 2006
LOL That's right Brenda. Patty. My son was just diagnosed in June after graduating from Lakota West.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:16:14 PM EDT 2006
Ok... to get to a quick conferences agenda... (ok if we don't spend a ton of time talking about them... it's early)... please speak up and ask away if you have any conferences questions. I'm here to answer them. Otherwise, I'm just letting the conversation go where it wants. Ok?

Registered User Intissar Mom of Maryam, 13 dx'd at 10  (141.158.37.121) Tue Sep 19 09:17:53 PM EDT 2006
Yes, we are all well, and we are seriously thinking of doing New York with CWD, since we can just drive, so I am excited about that.

Registered User OSUMom Mom of Dean, 19, dx'd at 18 6/06  (24.29.4.11) Tue Sep 19 09:18:06 PM EDT 2006
Brenda we have been very pleased with UC's The Diabetes Center. He was put on an insulin pump ASAP before heading to Columbus.

Registered User Maureen dx 10/94 pump 4/99  (64.233.197.74) Tue Sep 19 09:18:47 PM EDT 2006
dr mary lynn kiacz, she is still there. dr mulholland was nice the 1 or 2 times i saw her too

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:19:38 PM EDT 2006
Intissar - Would LOVE for you to come to NYC. It is going to be so much fun. I actually think most of the participants are not from New York, but rather from other places and wanting to see New York. We only have 25 rooms held in our block, though, so make a reservation soon if you think you are going to participate (you can always cancel the reservation without a penalty up to 72 hours in advance). I believe about half the rooms are already taken.

Registered User Meghan t1 way too long!!!  (76.1.47.56) Tue Sep 19 09:20:18 PM EDT 2006
Laura, if we live in NYC, do we have to get a hotel room to participate?

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, dx'd 9/89 at age 2  (216.68.227.252) Tue Sep 19 09:20:29 PM EDT 2006
That's great OSUMom. I would at least try to meet the endos in Columbus, in case of emergency.

Speaking of emergencies, I have a refilled Rx for Zofran--enough to take care of all those vomiting kids at the next three conferences!

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, dx'd 9/89 at age 2  (216.68.227.252) Tue Sep 19 09:22:03 PM EDT 2006
Our younger kids have a long weekend and we are thinking about NY. Marissa is NOT interested.

Registered User Maureen dx 10/94 pump 4/99  (64.233.197.74) Tue Sep 19 09:22:18 PM EDT 2006
i hated my endo here and it was easy for me to see an endo there (insurance wise and time wise). the appointments with dr kiacz are free and she would always get me in in a hurry if i needed something because i was an eastablushed patient, so he might wasnt to see her just as back up

Registered User Julia (a2angelmom) Ethan's mom  (205.188.116.12) Tue Sep 19 09:22:28 PM EDT 2006
hi all...finally made it

Registered User OSUMom Mom of Dean, 19, dx'd at 18 6/06  (24.29.4.11) Tue Sep 19 09:22:33 PM EDT 2006
Okay Brenda thanks. We purchased supplemental health insurance for the clinic on campus thinking he'd be more likely to go if he were sick if it were handy. But, certainly our medical insurance covers the OSU medical facilities.

Registered User Intissar Mom of Maryam, 13 dx'd at 10  (141.158.37.121) Tue Sep 19 09:23:07 PM EDT 2006
Wow! Already. I will definately call the hotel tomorrow and make our reservation. Is a Broadway show going to fit in the agenda? I have been dying to go to the Lion King.

Registered User OSUMom Mom of Dean, 19, dx'd at 18 6/06  (24.29.4.11) Tue Sep 19 09:23:45 PM EDT 2006
Maureen so Dr. Kiacz was the primary physician?

Registered User Intissar Mom of Maryam, 13 dx'd at 10  (141.158.37.121) Tue Sep 19 09:23:59 PM EDT 2006
Hi Julia, hope all of you are well

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:23:59 PM EDT 2006
Unfortunately, for the bulk of the NYC event, yes you do. The event was initially planned as a young adult event, which is why we got 25 rooms and have a pretty minimal budget. We have to fill the rooms or we have a huge penalty. And part of the weekend together involves having meals together and sightseeing together, etc. So, if we just had people stay at home and come do the 'event stuff' with us during the day, we'd have serious budget problems. So - as it stands - the NYC weekend is for 25 families... and I will try very hard to get one dinner or lunch or fun activity where anyone can come and participate. Anyone who has ideas, please let me know. I don't know NYC that well.

Registered User Julia (a2angelmom) Ethan's mom  (205.188.116.12) Tue Sep 19 09:24:29 PM EDT 2006
Hi Intissar...yes we all are...how about all you. Guess you won't be in Chicago

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:25:14 PM EDT 2006
Oooh. That didn't sound good. The reason a budget is smaller for 25 young adults is because they don't bring their whole families. So, our budget is planned for 25-50 people vs the 250-300 we usually have at a regional conference. Hope that makes sense.

Registered User Meghan t1 since 1984  (76.1.47.56) Tue Sep 19 09:25:35 PM EDT 2006
Just wondering...

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:26:15 PM EDT 2006
Brenda - Why isn't Marissa interested? There are a few young adults who've already contacted me about coming...

Registered User Intissar Mom of Maryam, 13 dx'd at 10  (141.158.37.121) Tue Sep 19 09:26:45 PM EDT 2006
Unfortunately not Julia, but we are hopefully going to New York

Registered User Julia (a2angelmom) Ethan's mom  (205.188.116.12) Tue Sep 19 09:27:36 PM EDT 2006
I am sorry...won't see you until next summer probably

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:27:51 PM EDT 2006
Intissar - Yes, go ahead and make your own plans to go see the Lion King (buy tickets as soon as you can so you have a good choice in seats). I'm thinking that we'll have a mixed enough group in NYC that people will go different directions on Sat and Sun nights (Monday is a holiday). I want to see a show - I'd love to see Wicked again. But there are a few others I'd be happy to see for the first time. Lion King was great.

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, dx'd 9/89 at age 2  (216.68.227.252) Tue Sep 19 09:27:59 PM EDT 2006
Marissa does not like NY--too noisy.

Registered User Julia (a2angelmom) Ethan's mom  (205.188.116.12) Tue Sep 19 09:28:10 PM EDT 2006
New York would be great...just not in the cards right now.

Help i am having problems with my seven year old, he had to be moved to another school due to no fulltime nurse, he is acting out and seems to be using diabetes as a crutch to see what he can get away with, his teacher has labeled him as a problem student and wants me to put him back in first grade and has seeked promission from the principal to doso, she is overwhelmed and said she has 9 other students with family and medical issues, i think i need to move him out of her class, does anyone have any suggestions?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:29:46 PM EDT 2006
It was a good question, Meghan. No problem asking.  Smile  We've had to backpedal a bit from the young adult adventures we'd planned because we didn't get strong attendance. Because we have contracts with the hotels - and huge penalties if we cancel - we have to use the space in some way. This was our solution to the New York contract. It'll be a lot of fun! Carolyn won't be there, though. It's her semester in Madrid!

Hi Mom of Michael - Can you take this particular discussion over to the parents room (and anyone who wants to answer)? It's a great thing to discuss... this particular room is about the CWD conferences and events. Can others switch over to the parents room for a few minutes and help this mom? Thanks!

Hey there, Cindy! I was wondering if you'd join us!
Cindy was THE FIRST person to register for FFL this year! And the only reason we put the registration form online so early was because she kept emailing me asking "Where is it???" LOL

Question about Chicago: You said to dress casually. Even for the Saturday night dinner? And can you give an idea of what the entertainment will be?

There's "entertainment" in Chicago? Hmm, probably too late to go. I think Kathryn has to work and has soccer. Marissa wants to go with Jeff, but since she's doing Ann Arbor this weekend, she should stay home and do homework.

HI Diane - Good question re: Chicago. Yes, the dress is casual even for dinner... the teens should dress nicely (i.e., no cutoffs or junky shirts). They are in a really nice room on the top floor of the hotel... floor to ceiling windows. It's elegant. We, of course, are in the regular ballroom.  Smile  For the parents and any interested kids, Noah Moore is going to do a slide show and some of his Noah-style entertainment. Gee, how would you describe that (those of you who have seen him?) For the kids, we'll have two rooms going with movies. Also, the pool is open in the evening if you just want to relax there.

Teani - Re: the 'emotional' sessions at Friends for Life. A big YES. First, we are going to have - on Weds which is Focus Group Day - two rooms going all day with Dr. Bob, Joe S., and Scott S. Then, during the regular conference schedule on Thurs and Fri, during most hours, there will be a choice of an 'emotional' type session - to discuss stress, family relationships, our kids, our own health, etc. We really increased the number of those sessions for next year. btw, the schedule is nearly done. Yay! Grin

The rooms for NYC look to be about half full. Yes, it is now a family event (not enough 'takers' in the young adult category, although those young adults who come will have fun seeing the city with Natalie). We have to limit it to 25 families because of budget reasons... Hoping to do this again in a future year and plan for lots of people from the get-go. I'm sorry we have to impose a 'you have to stay at the hotel to participate' rule, but because of how the budget was structured, we have to do that.

The registration form just went online on Sunday, so I don't have any in hand... but half of the rooms have been reserved (which I know from the hotel). Until I have registration forms, I don't know how old the kids are.

Laura, I have a question not protaining to the conference, how do I get my school to allow Alex to check sugar inside the classroom?

Registered User Julia Mom of Andrew 10, dx 20 months  (207.200.116.139) Tue Sep 19 09:57:05 PM EDT 2006

Cindy, yes we have become FFL regulars -  Smile  Once you attend one conference, you can't wait for the next. Or at least that is how we are!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:57:21 PM EDT 2006
Meghan - I believe formal check-in is 3:00. What time are you arriving?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 09:58:16 PM EDT 2006
Julia - I think we are a pretty small bunch right now - maybe a dozen families. I don't see anyone online who I know is coming, although we do have some lurkers...

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, dx'd 9/89 at age 2  (216.68.227.252) Tue Sep 19 09:58:17 PM EDT 2006
Sorry, Julia--skipping that one, too. Just too far to travel w/o pulling the kids from school and I think Marissa really should not miss any classes either.

Registered User Julia Mom of Andrew 10, dx 20 months  (207.200.116.139) Tue Sep 19 09:58:21 PM EDT 2006

Laura - did you ever imagine when this all began that you'd actually have to say that a conference was SOLD OUT!

Registered User Cindy Mom of Christina, 7, dxd 3/21/06  (69.125.126.185) Tue Sep 19 09:59:10 PM EDT 2006
Connie, I have a feeling that will happen with us as well. It will be a challenge to see if I can get my husband to stay over night in the city when we are so close.

there are a few families in Modesto we are trying to peak their interest. One family may just sign up for Saturday night which I told them was fine

Cindy is the Great Wolf lodge the one in PA or is that the one in NY.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 10:00:37 PM EDT 2006
Connie - Nope, never would I have dreamed that these conferences would sell out. This is two in a row - Philly last March and now Chicago. And I think the same thing will happen in La Jolla in April (Focus on Pumping)... it's a good feeling.  Smile 

Registered User Julia (a2angelmom) Ethan's mom  (205.188.116.12) Tue Sep 19 10:00:40 PM EDT 2006

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 10:01:49 PM EDT 2006
I'm not crazy about the Great Wolf Lodge (I've spoken at conferences there). I think it's a great venue for families - not a great venue for conferences like ours.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper, quilt square number 488  (76.1.235.164) Tue Sep 19 10:01:50 PM EDT 2006

In La Jolla, it's a smaller Marriott. I liked it a lot - walking distance to a wonderful outdoor pedestrian mall. Not far from beachy stuff. We'll have the website up in a week or so. I don't want to post it until after Chicago.

Registered User Julia Mom of Andrew 10, dx 20 months  (207.200.116.139) Tue Sep 19 10:05:36 PM EDT 2006
Laura, I am glad you are trying a new place, especially for us west coast CWD people it is much appreciated. There were some wonderful people at the Santa Clara event and a really good time was had by all

Registered User Julia Mom of Andrew 10, dx 20 months  (207.200.116.139) Tue Sep 19 10:06:11 PM EDT 2006

Oh my! It is after 10! And I thought no one would show up tonight.

Bedtime in my neck of the woods. Thanks, everyone, for chatting tonight. The room will stay open for about another hour, and I'll be online for just a few more minutes. The chat is 'officially' closed! Smile

Jim and I will keep working on people to attend the San Francisco event. Our good friend's great neice was just dx with type 1 and they are here in Modesto. I might encourage them to attend even if it is for a night or day whatever they are comfortable with

Registered User Julia Mom of Andrew 10, dx 20 months  (207.200.116.139) Tue Sep 19 10:08:21 PM EDT 2006
Laura is it okay to give my phone number over the chat or do we need to take it to email?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.212.12) Tue Sep 19 10:08:26 PM EDT 2006
I feel the same way about trying new places. It's important to move the events around the country. We'll be having a regional conference in Seattle, one in Minneapolis, and another in Bethesda (Maryland). I have no idea how many people will come - hopefully a lot - but we at least need to offer something in these new spots.
