Dear Mr. S.,
I wanted to take the time to thank you for saving Grace's life today. You noticed something looked wrong with her when she was reading with a friend. She doesn't remember the details, but she remembers you standing in front of her with a Star Burst saying, "Eat this."
She doesn't remember you taking her to the nurse either, but you did. When the nurse checked her blood sugar it was 30. Her brain didn't have enough energy to function and was shutting down. She had a juice box and a 15 carb snack, followed by another snack, and began to recover.
Grace was amazed that she didn't feel any symptoms of the low. I needed to remind her that her confusion and blacking out WAS the symptom. This was the first time she's ever needed help and wasn't able to ask for it herself. Thank God you were there, looking out for her.
As a fourth grade teacher you're probably prepared for almost anything when you walk in your class in the morning. But I can guarantee you had no idea you'd be called on to save a life today. As a parent of a Type 1 Diabetic, I worry for her safety every time she's not with me (and even when she is!). We are truly blessed that people like you are in her life to watch over her as well.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You saved my daughter's life today. God Bless you.
Pam (Grace's mom)
