I’m hoping there are some adults out there or parents with older kids who can help me. (this might not make sense to anyone without D)
my son is going to be making his first communion next month. He has type 1. My problem is this. his 1st communion is at 11am. Normally he snacks around 9:30 or so and even though this is his lowest time during the day, usually we’re ok with giving snack and I can turn his pump down a tad bit if we’re having trouble at that time. But he also gets low when he gets nervous and I’m assuming he’s going to be a bundle of nerves that day. So my plan was to check him right before the kids process into church and carb him up if needed. But then I realized that he’d be violating the 1 hour pre-communion rule. And I’m at a loss. Is there some sort of exception for people who need to eat for medical reasons? Obviously we’d do everything we could to make sure we didn’t have to have a snack, but it happens. And obviously if he’s getting low I can’t just not carb him up.
Anyone have any guidance on this?
