Thread: What would you do?

    Default What would you do?

    I thought I had this all planned out but given tonight's hypo now I am not
    sure.

    One of my relatives is celebrating a birthday on Saturday. This person has
    picked a chain seafood restaurant and the meal will be at 3:30. This person
    had their birthday there last year during the week at a time we could not
    make. So Angela and I just grabbed a quick meal at Taco Time and then went
    to my parent's house for presents and cake. Well they had cake. We did
    not.

    This year we can do that time but... That is not a time we normally eat. I
    do not normally eat lunch and it is IMO too early for dinner. The reason
    this time was picked is that the birthday person and their SO eat only one
    meal a day. And it is as early as possible after the SO gets off work.
    That's another matter, I know.

    To complicate matters, there isn't much we can eat there. They do have a
    website that lists the allergens. And pretty much everything has wheat in
    it. Or egg. And I can't have egg! I am also allergic to oysters. And we
    don't eat seafood. The only non-seafood things listed on the menu are not
    at all safe for us to eat. There are shrimp nachos listed. However the
    chips are fried in a communal fryer so it says they are subject to cross
    contamination. If we did order those we would have to order them without
    the shrimp. So most likely we would be paying for something we aren't
    getting. The shrimp. They may or may not be able to do a salad we can eat.
    I don't know. We are also not really supposed to have dairy on that day due
    to the way our rotation diet works.

    So... The options would be... Eat breakfast somewhat late in the day and
    hope I don't get a hypo between then and 3:30. Eat half an order of nachos
    (splitting it with Angela) and maybe a salad and hope that can get me
    through to a late dinner elsewhere.

    Or just skip the meal. But... If we skip the meal that will for sure put
    me at risk of another hypo. Because by the time they are doing their cake
    and the presents, it will be my normal dinner time.

    Either way I think I will be screwed. If I eat the nachos, I could still
    have a hypo or I could go high. If I don't eat them, I risk a hypo.

    I suppose another option would be that we just bring our own dinner and eat
    it while they are doing cake, but... That just seems really too weird and I
    haven't a clue what I could bring.

    Sometimes I just wish I had a normal family, but I digress.

    I am leaning towards eating the nachos, hoping they don't sicken us and
    hoping I don't go too high or have a hypo. What would you do?

    the dietician told me to have a snack that suited me in a situation like
    this

    have the snack before you leave home....... attend the meal and if you
    can have a salad, great...... if not, enjoy your tea or coffee, it's
    your company at the meal that is desired

    don't go on about why/what you can't eat, smile and say 'i'm very happy
    with my salad, thank you'

    and......... have fun!

    I don't drink coffee or tea and we probably can not just have a drink. Most
    restaurants like this have a minimum order. Not really sure about this
    place because I have never eaten there before. That is why I thought we
    could order the nachos minus the shrimp.

    oh, i'm so sorry that i wasn't able to help you

    guess you are just going to have to say 'sorry i can't make it', then
    there will be no more problems for you

    i'm sure your family will somehow be terribly offended by you, but i
    doubt you can avoid that reaction as you can't find a way to attend

    i wish you all the best, and i apologise for even spending the time to
    try to assist you

    take care and keep well

    bye!

    I just can't see how eating prior to that is going to help. The problem is
    going to come at dinner time because I can not eat then. Eating even
    earlier than 3:30 really won't help with that problem at all.

    i would check the website to see if they had cooked vegetables you could
    eat... also check the children's menu... and for my part i would probably
    eat at the regular time, going to resto and just having a drink... then
    pack/stop on the way to parents and get something eating it before arriving
    there, even if you say we have a couple of errands to do on the way... Lee

    No. No vegetables. I don't do well with vegetables because of the
    gastroparesis. And there is nothing at all on the children's menu. Not
    that we could order from it because we're too old.

    It's all a moot point now anyway. They don't want us to come because we
    might have whooping cough.

    My point is that we could not eat at the regular time because they will be
    doing presents, cake and ice cream then. And eating on the way there would
    still be too early for me.

    No way! I don't like to take food home and the cats hate shrimp. I swear
    these are the pickiest cats ever. They wouldn't eat a bite of the BG tuna.
    Now I have to donate that.

    They will like their plates clean if I feed them the Skipjack Tuna
    Appetizer. Will eat almost all of it with the Tender Tongol, Chicken and
    Tuna and the Salmon.

    I have found two kinds of Fancy Feast canned tuna that they will eat about
    3/4 of.

    And they love all crunchy treats except for the dairy ones. They do love
    the NOW! dry food. So that's good.

    Eat seafood.

    Or order a salad with grilled chicken on the side. Ask for the salad to be
    made without cheese, or even without dressing. Bring your own dressing.
