Re: [IP] First vacation since dx'ed



Our son is 5, almost 6 and we've done the Disney World thing without a
hitch.  But we've never put insulin in a refrigerator (he doesn't like the
cold sensation).  We've always gone with out doctor's advice that as long as
you are comfortable the insulin will be.  If you put it in any kind of pack,
you should be okay.  Have a great time.
