  1. So Santa is bringing my son, my daughter and I a weekend in Disneyland in the New Year.
    The only family holiday we ever had was here in 2014 we were a complete family at the time and it was pre-diabetes.
    It was only after I booked it where I realised, **** this is going to be so different for us. He will have special insurance but there is so many things I will have to have prepped to perfection. He hasn’t got a pump so its not an option for travel I hear these are amazing devices. The questions I need to find the answers to are things like how do I transport his diabetes stuff, am I allowed to bring them into the park, how are the rides and walking going to affect him will he need more snacks? All the snacks and food will need to be planned to a T how am I gonna know the carb count at places to eat over there eek, most importantly how am I going to transport his glucagon injection ( injection for severe hypo life and death situation) I have 2 in my fridge should i bring them both and also if they are supposed to keep them refrigerated how do I keep them refrigerated for a weekend and whilst travelling with them??? I have a lot to learn and wish I booked this with our whole family because I am going alone with my kids thats not scary at all being a mother of a diabetic child!!!
