Re: [IP] sleepovers



Thanks Beverly!  We can handle checking while she is awake.  My daughter
understands how to do the carb ratio and bolus part very well.  I just don't
know how to ask my daughter's friend's mom to check after they are asleep.
Do you think we will be ok not checking when they are asleep? Thanks again
