gramma, you'll likely want to look at the Quilt page too since you're a quilter. You can submit one to be viewed at the conference in Orlando.

They speak some English. Not a great amount. But when we went over there last year, we didn't speak much Italian and it was fine. Dr. Scaramuzza, Dr. Ricordi, and Dr. Songini all speak wonderful English - they'll assist. I think the teens will do just great on their own!

Hi Natalie. We had a teen support group tonight locally, and Zack said kids have to condition their parents not to freak out about high blood sugars. So one should jokingly say (when asked what bg is) something like 350 minus 125.

Marissa had an incredible rollercoaster weekend with the prom and stuff. She needs to review doing corrections based on physical activity to prevent lows.

All kids in elementary, tweener, or teen sessions should have their meters with them during all sessions. And at the pool. And in Sports Central. It will be up to them - not up to us - to test bgs. Of course, if they aren't feeling well, we'll make sure they test... and we'll encourage everyone to test before doing sports, etc. So, we certainly do hope that all ages will do a lot of testing!

Registered User Natalie T1, pumper, teen program director  (66.7.133.180) Tue Apr 26 09:10:54 PM EDT 2005
We do a whole reinactment of parents responses to blood sugars...The teens end up in stitches...and then we get to the nitty gritty of why parents react the way they do...what they are worried about and how to set up an agreement on how to deal with future issues..

Heidi, at age 7 - only because that's when we discovered our current endo. Othewise he would have been on one much earlier. The conference is a GREAT place to learn more about pumps.

Wow! So many conference staff here tonight! Yay!
Let me introduce those who are on - just in case you don't know who they are:
Lauren Lanning - My right hand person, coordinates all the volunteers and also has a lead role with the elementary age kids
Natalie Bellini - My other right hand - coordinates all the teen sessions and activities
Brenda Hitchcock - Jeff's wife - does anything and everything at conferences, including making ER visits (on her own)
Debbie Goodyear - Liaison for CWD faculty - smooths the way for all our wonderful faculty as they arrive and get settled
Meghan Neumann - elementary group faculty

Boy, you guys are here... I think I'll go make some coffee...
 Cool 

Registered User Natalie T1, pumper, teen program director  (66.7.133.180) Tue Apr 26 09:14:38 PM EDT 2005
Debbie, we do. I have to tell you, we focus 95 % on what you can do right to take care of your D, but we do address complications in a safe way. Not 'you are going to go blind one day, young man.'

Thanks, Ellen. Our endochrinologist told us that Daniel is not ready yet, because of behavioral issues. I guess we could still show him what it is and how it is used at the conference.

Natalie, if you hadn't heard, I broke my right wrist the day afer Easter (during Spring Break). Since I am right handed, I couldn't write down all those BGs and stuff that I continue to log in a book. It's been a month and I can write better (am typing two-handed tonight--only somewhat painful). Anyway, I let a lot of the log stuff slide and don't see a big need to go back and check the meters' memories. So, I guess it is preparing me for college in Sept!

We will have a large area cordoned off and marked CWD. It will be staffed at all times by CWD parents and staff. We'll have several coolers where your teen can store insulin, pumps, etc. It's a partially shaded area, so we can also simply leave things in the shade with us if you'd prefer. I walked the entire park with Lauren last week, and TL is a great park for the teens - they will have a blast. We'll have CWD stations all around TL - with a meter, glucose, etc., just in case it's too far of a walk and a teen isn't feeling well.

I wish I had a place as a teen to go where whatever I said or felt about D was OK. I wish I had a place where I was asked to actually stop and think about how it made me feel or react/behave. This is the basis for the teen curriculum for CWD.

I might need to stay at the Coronado because I never know what I will be doing (taking myself to the ER again  LOL ), filling in wherever, etc. But, I will have my cell phone and can pick up anyone who has an emergency and needs to be taken back to the hotel (perhaps ill and not wanting to use the bus).

The kids will get their Scavenger Hunt cards ('bingo cards') during their first session on Thursday. The teens will turn them in to Natalie on Thursday afternoon. If they've completed them, they get a ticket to Typhoon Lagoon. If they fooled around instead of doing the Scavenger Hunt - they get to buy their ticket for the next day. The younger kids have Thurs and Fri to do the Scavenger Hunt. They'll get a nice prize when they turn in their cards to their staff.

Deb, I got red, which is one of the school colors for all three of our kids and it matches Kathryn's soccer uniforms (one team is red and white, the other is black and white with red numbers). I go to the orthopedic dr. in the a.m. Not sure what they plan to do this time except another x-ray.

Name badges come in the registration packets, which will be available on Weds. We don't have a registration area until that time. Lauren - maybe we can get some 'sticky' CWD name tags (disposable) to wear each day. I want the 'good' name tags for use during the conference. But it would be a good idea to have some type of identification, so we can see each other. I'll have my CWD shirts on every day.

Everyone wears a name tag that has a plastic tag holder (Lauren, what's the technical name?). They can write on the back of their name tag or just get a piece of paper and put it behind the tag and use it for notes. One of the booths may have note paper or post-its.

I chaperone the teen dance....it isn't on the 23rd floor this year.....

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.24) Tue Apr 26 09:46:27 PM EDT 2005
Julia - We were just talking about making sure to wear something that identifies you as a CWD parent if you are coming to Disney early. An old conference t-shirt... a sticky name badge... something, just so we know you are part of the group. I think you need to wear your Expect Me To Be Loud shirt...

Registered User meghan diabetes sucks!  (64.12.116.134) Tue Apr 26 09:46:31 PM EDT 2005
that was supposed to be I will chaperone, not a statement of fact!

meghan, I think if you click on the Quilt block above the chat, you should be able to find how to order a blank square. You can always e-mail Jeff (jeffh@castleweb.com). I think we have about 15 squares and they are $25 (materials and labor).

There isn't a sign-up sheet for the First-Timers... it's going to be a large room with refreshments, lots of milling space... and a crowd of first timers. We're expecting at least several hundred people to wander through in the course of 90 minutes. It's meant to be a time to meet Jeff and me, ask questions, meet other first timer families, etc.

Debbie - The buddy families are welcome at the first-timers gathering. Otherwise, it's just for new families. Not enough space for everyone to show up.
Similarly, for the volunteers reception on Tuesday night, this is JUST for volunteers. We'll have refreshments, you'll stop by the patio (we're hopefully having this outdoors), pick up your assignment and your volunteer shirts (ooooh - Caribbean blue), and visit with other volunteers.

The Coronado now has those carts driving around all the time! They kept trying to pick up Lauren and me when we were there last week. It's a nice service. We don't even have to pay extra for it. I think Disney has added some nice upgrades since we were at the Coronado two years ago. High speed internet in the rooms. Wireless in the convention center. Free refrigerators in each room. Free use of the fitness center.

SWAPS are small, usually handmade pins that girls trade when they go to camp or hayrides etc. They pin them on hats or vests.

He didn't want to be on such an isolated trip. He also didn't want to go away for 6 weeks and lose out on training time for crew. He is hoping to get on a team at college. He isn't very tall so I don't think a scholarship is in the offing. He also said he wanted to go to the conference.

Registered User Natalie T1, Pumper, teen progeam director  (66.7.133.180) Tue Apr 26 10:09:14 PM EDT 2005
I am thrilled Sarah will be there!

Keith wants to do a more personal trip. Maybe go over for a semester in college.

Keith just got his hair cut on March 27th. It was 9 inches long and donated to Locks for Love. He is so gorgeous again without all those curls hanging in his face. The girls are sad though. They loved to play with his hair at the regattas between races.

i have to say, the info we all get from the conferences is great (and very much needed), but it is also great to see how excited our kids (myself included) get the closer it gets to conference time.....we get to see our friends!

I used to dislike the instant messaging, but it has been great for the kids since the conference.

Don't worry Lauren, they will be fine with all of the moms around the pool. More moms than they want (probably!)

They should be ok. I have tested this at the smaller conferences. The coronado is huge, though!
