Ethan was a healthy 7lb 8oz baby on 7th January 2009. He hit all his milestones well, walking at 9 months and potty trained before he was 3. In December 2012 Ethan had chicken pox. He seemed to take several weeks to get over it, we assumed it was just a bad case. In March 2013 Ethan had Scarletina. He lost his appetite fully for 2 weeks but still drank. We noticed after 3 weeks that he still didn't have much of an appetite but he had started waking at night to have a drink. By week 5 Ethan started to wet the bed. We phoned the doctors but they didn't seem worried and just gave us a routine appointment for a week later. My husband was not happy with this as my father in law is Type 1 diabetic too. We phoned the doctor back and got an emergency appointment for that day.

The doctor did a blood test which was high, we were sent to Wrexham Hospital straight away. After lots of blood tests it was sadly confirmed that Ethan was in fact type 1 diabetic. He was very brave through the whole process, never crying just asking lots of questions.

We were in hospital for 4 days to learn about blood tests, carb counting and giving him daily insulin injections...a minimum of 4 per day. Ethan is now 8 and deals with it all so well...his levels are up and down at times through change of weather, emotion and just routine. He has recently been diagnosed with suffering with migraines too. Through everything he is our little hero.
