Cindy, You don't know how much better it made me feel to see that someone 
else sleeps w/ their diabetic child too!!! I AM definitely one of the 
overprotective/ paranoid parents since my son had an insulin reaction/seizure 
in the middle of the night and could not speak for around 10 hours. Our Dr 
thought he had brain damage, but I learned later from someone on this list 
that it was called "Ryan's Syndrome".  I check Jake every night at 1am and 
4am since that night. Usually his numbers are fine, but I do catch him low 
sometimes and am thankful I did check. I know we need to make him sleep in 
his room, but it is so hard to do. We even put a door from his room to ours 
when we built our house. His bed isn't 15ft from mine and I still sleep 
better when he's w/ us. (Even if he is 5'5 and 132lbs and growing!)
Also, I wanted to share w/ others whose diabetic child is very active or 
athletic like Jake, that Gatorade is making a s/f drink w/ electrolytes for 
sports activities called Propel in 3 or 4 flavors. They are great for ball 
games and practice! Also, I'm not pushing these drinks just sharing info for 
those it might apply too!!!!
