Interview with a D-Camper
Grace returned from diabetes camp a week ago. You can read about her return here.
I told you all out there in the DOC that I would grant an interview with the gal herself, so here goes:
Tell me about camp...
Fun. Awesome. Want to go next year.
What was your favorite part of camp?
The swimming, the zipline into the tree! and boating!
Least favorite part?
I don't have one.
Tell me about the cabin award you got...
I got the 'Little Miss Sunshine' award cause I am always smiling.
Any lows at camp or in your cabin?
Yeah, L hit a low of 29! She had to drink like 3 juices. I hit 49 and had a juice and some nutter butter cookies.
Tell me about your cabin and your bunkmates...
Awesome cabin. They were nice, funny, cute and helpful.
What did you learn about diabetes?
I did learn some stuff but I forget it. No, wait, I did learn how a pancreas stops working, I learned that.
What was it like being among so many people with diabetes?
How was the food at camp?
I liked it. I had cinnamon toast - Mom, you never make cinnamon toast, you gotta learn how to make it. They had turkey one night, but it wasn't Thanksgiving.
Did you do your own carb counting?
I had to stand in line, get my folder, decide what to eat, write down the numbers, get checked by the nutritionist that that was ok, then they sign off, then I can dose myself with the PDM. I added them up on a paper.
Anyone else wear the OmniPod?
A counselor did! He showed me his arm, I think it was his arm.
Would you go back next year?
Favorite memory of camp?
Meeting friends. Going into the cabin which is cool. Campfires. Zipline. Swimming.
Closing statements Grace?
I had nice counselors, but I also did miss my mom.
Yeah, we're done.
