Our son, Jimmy was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just over a year ago and what a horrible year its been. When Jimmy was rushed into hospital we had no clue about diabetes and didnt know where to start. All the staff are St Richards Hospital were amazing and helped us as best they could. Whilst in hospital Jimmy was given a backpack from JDRF which was full of information for both children and parents to understand diabetes, books for us to read and also Rufus the cuddly bear. This pack full of infornation was so helpful to us and helped us understand Jimmys condition a little better. I will never forget the moment I woke up in hospital and jumped up to check on Jim and he was laying there reading his book and turned to me and said 'Mum...I need to keep a food diary.
' I never thought I would be having this conversation with him and was so proud how strong he was being (certainly alot stronger than me and his dad, James). We left hospital a couple of days later where Jimmy was checking his only blood glucose levels and not long after that was injecting his own insulin. What a little tropper
