I took my 11 year old son to accident and emergency where he was diagnosed with diabetes type 1. As I didn't know anybody with this illness I put my sons symptoms down to other things like a water infection or bug and by the time we arrived it became evident he was in a critical condition. His body had started to shut down and blood was only being carried to his vital organs. The swift treatment he received and the fantastic care the nurses provided I believe saved his life and I will be eternally grateful to them.
