We are leaving on Tuesday at an ungodly hour (3:45 a.m.) for a seven day Alaska cruise. I am very excited and looking forward to the trip but I am nervous of the diabetes unknowns that may come our way. I am trying my best to plan and pack. I even got a loaner pump to take with us in case of a pump failure while we are away. (Thank you Medtronic) :)
We have our letter from the doctor, diabetes supplies & backup supplies but I still feel like I am forgetting things. I am worried about the airport and hoping security goes smoothly. This will be our first plane trip as a family and with diabetes. We have been doing a lot of traveling this summer and everything has gone well so far and I am hoping that this trip does too.
It is funny because before diabetes, I always planned and packed carefully for vacations. Now I do that times 10! Although now my packing priorities have changed. Now diabetes needs are at the top of my list and for everything else, I figure we will make it work.
