My son Harry was diagnosed with type 1 when he was aged 2 in November 2010 he had DKA and spent a week in hospital with drips in both arms and legs. Having his blood tested every hour as his blood sugars were so high with his pancrease no longer producing insulin.
In order for us to stay positive and to encourage my son that he can have a full life even with him having 4 insulin injections a day for life and him having some days 9 to 10 blood tests a day and treatment for hypo and hyper we remain upbeat.
We are doing a sponsor walk on Sunday 30th September in aid of JDRF (midlands walk) if any one has a few coins spare for this much appreiciated we do a few things to raise money for JDRF and have raised around £650 so far to date.
www.justgiving.com/jennypotterphotography and also look at facebook and look at jenny potter photography charity fundraising events -jdrf.
My son is extremely brave and we are hoping all the money rasied will provide vital medical research so that newer treatments can be found and possibly a cure. I never tell my son there will be a cure as he will think by tomorrow he will not longer have hypo/hypers and all the other treatment he has. I just hope and pray for a brighter future for my precious son.
Thank you so much for reading this.

Have also started my photography project for Juvenile Diabetes research foundation. Photographing children with type 1 diabetes which includes my 4 year old son who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 2 years old. It will probably take me a year to do this project and I have a lot to do but will work hard. Did a photo shoot for the children including my son
Also have lots of commercial work.
Hired a Nikon D3 camera from hire a camera.com which was great. Trying out a Nikon D4 in July so can't wait to use this.

Sunday 20th November 2011.
Busy day today the day did not start of very good with a lot of worry as my 4 year old son who has type 1 diabetes was being sick from 6.30 am until gone 9am was very worrying as after he had eaten his breakfast he was sick and then I had to give my son his insulin which meant his blood levels would reduce further and he had been sick so had no food inside his stomach. I managed to stablise Harry I think it was the excitement the day before that it was his birthday party even though he had the correct insulin the day before he ran around a bit more than usual which might have made the insulin work faster so on Sunday morning once he had his insulin and gave my beautiful brave boy a bath he was feeling better. I decided earlier on in the day that if he was still being sick that I would cancell driving to LG arena in Birmingham to photograph the Red Hot Chili Peppers as well even though I would really hate to miss photographing them I could not leave my boy.
Luckily my son gradually improved and so by 5pm I was ready to go to birmingham.Got to the arena for 7.30pm there was a great atmosphere and alot of people had gone to the gig from Wales. Recognised a few other photographers that had travelled to Wales to photograph at a U2 gig a few years back that I was at was good to catch up.
20.30 go escorted to the stage by security. Red Hot Chili Peppers on at 8.45pm.
3 Songs and then it is time for me to just watch them for a few minutes buy a t-shirt and wrist band and then head back to Wales as have a deadline for me to submit my photos by.
11.15 arrive back home first check my beautiful boy is ok.
