Who wants a copy of Coco's First Sleepover?


So I have ten copies of the new Coco book to giveaway - who wants one?! Nothing fancy about this offer, how about the first ten residents of the U.S or Canada that leave a comment asking for a book, get one. Don't forget to leave your email so I can contact you for a mailing address.

and while I'm on the subject of Coco and sleepovers...

Coming in late September, Lilly Diabetes will be embarking on a satellite media tour focused on providing tips and guidance for parents when preparing a child with type I diabetes for sleepovers. These radio and TV interviews will be given by Amy Hess Fischl, a CDE and dietitian and some guy named Scott who writes a blog or something. The advice will be based on my personal experiences and the learned advice of Ms. Fischl.

Here's a little more about Amy, me you've heard enough about this year to last a lifetime.

Amy Hess Fischl, M.S., R.D., L.D.N., BC-ADM, C.D.E.
Coordinator, Teen & Adolescent Diabetes Transition Program
University of Chicago Comprehensive Diabetes Center-Chicago, Ill.

For more than 15 years, Amy Hess Fischl, M.S., R.D., L.D.N., BC-ADM, C.D.E., has been educating and inspiring children and families living with diabetes. A Certified Diabetes Educator(r), registered dietitian and current coordinator of the Teen and Adolescent Diabetes Transition Program at the University of Chicago's Kovler Diabetes Center in Chicago, Amy has travelled across the country and around the world raising disease awareness and promoting the importance of proper diabetes care, particularly for children and young adults.   


Lilly will provide transportation to and from New York (car ride), a stipend for expenses and one nights lodging. I don't yet have all of the details about the day, but I do hope that they are planning on feeding me at least twice. The Coco books were provided by Lilly but they are free through your Endocrinologist, just ask your doc for a copy (they can get them through their Lilly sales rep).

Hi. My daughter was diagnosed with type 1 three years ago, when she was 7. She is now 10, and all of her friends are having sleepovers. We have had a couple at our house, but never at a friend's house. She is not on an insulin pump and does not yet give herself her own injections. We also check her blood sugar throughout the night, every night. I just cannot see one of her friend's parents taking on that responsibility. I know it makes her feel sad when she finds out her best friend is having another friend sleepover. Just curious, has Arden ever slept over at a friends house?

Very cool, now that kennedy is 13 and has a dex/pod combo, we have had some relief in the sleepover anxiety level at our house! I wrote a post about it and the dynamic between the two of us on a new site!!easy-seo-blog/c5l4

Its tricky, on the one hand as a mom, you have to be laid back about it, or your kid just won't get invited, on the other hand, a sleepover handled poorly can land your kid in the ICU. Slippery slope we are riding on!?

Oh shoot, what a day to have Internet problems! If you know of anymore available anywhere else can you send me in the right direction, this book isn't available in Canada yet and we would live to have a copy!

August 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMarjorie

Just waking up and seeing this now in CA. Hope we are not too late! We have a hard time getting Coco books, because our endo is independent and does not use a Lilly rep. We would love one if you still have one!! Thank you!

August 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTonya

I haven't heard back from Lilly yet about extra books, keep your fingers crossed. Let's close requests behind Tonya's and I'll do my best to cover those who asked. If I can't get extras, the first ten who asked will be contacted. Hold tight! - Best, Scott

August 16, 2013 | Registered CommenterScott Benner

Thanks so much, Scott!! We'll keep our fingers crossed!! :)
