NHF...Are you ready?

Can you believe in less than 5 weeks NHF will be in full swing? If you are traveling to Denver for this wonderful meeting are you prepared? Remember to get your travel letter from your HTC so you will not have any problems bringing factor and supplies on board if you are flying. If you will be traveling by car it is a good idea to find out where the HTC's and hospitals are on your route.

Do any of you have some travel tips that have worked out for you? We would love to hear from you!!

Factor at School

Well school is well underway for the kids. Hopefully it has been a smooth start for you all!

My two youngest are in 7th and 8th grade this year. They both self infuse so we keep a dose of their factor at school should the need arise. This did take some time on my part to educate the school staff on what it was and why it was a good idea for the boys to have it at school. I am just wondering if any of you have had any problems getting your child's school to allow you to keep factor there. Maybe some of you would like to share your stories of how you have educated your child's school staff. There are so many ways to insure your child has a smooth year at school with his hemophilia not the main focus. Please share your ideas and experiences with us! We love to hear from you all!
