Fear #1: Matthew will go low overnight and not wake up.
Fear #2: Matthew will go low while swimming and drown.
This post is about fear #2.
This past weekend, Matthew was invited to a friend's house and the mom asked me if he could swim.
Matthew has been swimming lots of times....with me. Never without me. I started to say no. And then I started thinking:
Okay Tracy...Swimming has gone great lately. If he follows a few rules, he can do this. He really can....
I decided to go for it!
We set rules:
- Check BG before swimming.
- Call me. You'll probably need a starburst to take you up quick, then a fun size snickers will keep you going.
- You can swim for one hour.
But here's the best part:
At dinner, when he saw his fantastic BG of 112.....with a huge smile on his face, he said, "I ROCKED IT!"
I'll never forget that moment and I'm so thankful that God helped me be brave.
