This last year my mother accompanied me to ACen, and she will be accompanying me at ACen this year. She is hypoglycemic, and can very easily pass out if the situation is right. Last year we had an almost scare of her passing out, but I managed to get her something to eat and drink before the worst happened.
We didn't know autograph lines were lined up that early, and for that long...
They told me that if she accompanies me this year, we should go to the Special Needs booth and let them know about her hypoglycemia. Usually she is relatively fine, but should we visit the staff just to inform them and make sure everything is on the up and up? I am her emergency contact on her badge, and will probably not stray from her. So I'm not really sure what it would accomplish to speak with them, besides a "hey she's hypoglycemic. Just fyi" haha.
Just wanted to check. (As like I said, they said I should let them know if she goes this year)
No problem at all. Just stop by either of our locations when you arrive. We'll evaluate her needs and make whatever special arrangements will be needed to accommodate them. And just in case you do
happen to get separated, we'll also give her one of our MedicInfo Cards, which attaches her most vital medical info to her badge, having it ready and available to our EMRT staff should they be needed.
In the Stephens, we're right at the entrance to Registration, and in the Hyatt, we're on the first floor next to the big Customer Service desk.
