The parents of a pregnant baby were "sharpened" by 17 hours a day, surprised by the fact that they found a strange brain tumor.
Little Jack Young, North Somerset in the United Kingdom, was born in two weeks, parents thought Gemma and Ed just like their babies were unusual.
But, it was concluded, constant giggling were appropriate for "seizures laughing" boutotes, caused by hypothalamic hamartoma – benign tumor of the brain.
"There was no break, the sounds were constant and we did not find trace for a long time," said Gemma, 32.
After two years, until dawn, until night, Jack had a 10-hour option to get rid of the growth.
And in that case, strange arrests stopped.
The doctors have explained that ordinary secondary jelly causes 1000 children with epilepsy to cause sudden fires that produce energy – usually tears or laughter.
Born in May 2014, he started sleeping for a period of between 30 minutes and 17 hours.
"To be honest, we thought it was totally happy all the time," said Gemma.
"She was joking, but she just seemed to repeat it like she did.
"To start, I was a new mother to get into a new habit, but after two months things went too far and we had to go downstairs to Jack, because we had to sleep at the end, too."
Jack's six-week check-up was only reported to a health visitor by Gemma Jack giggling noise.
"I felt terrifying that another woman had noticed this baby, and like my mother, I realized I had to be," continued Gemma.
Jack immediately took the GP and sent the ear, nose and throat specialist.
"At this time, nobody of us was asleep and asking doctors to do something," Gemma said.
"The sound was tireless and it was not so difficult. It was difficult to sleep, because there was no noise again."
But specialists did not really know what was going on – and so family mentioned to see a neurologist at the Bristol Royal Children Hospital.
"Even though a hospital nurse thought she laughed and was amazed at the reason we saw by her doctors," Gemma said.
"People will tell us:" Is not it a happy one? "And the boy was happy, but his desire was not laughter, it was something else. I had no idea to be in trouble with Jack, but I was scared to never stop."
Eventually, after a scan of MRI, his family received a diagnosis.
"The doctor said that he had a hypothalamus hamartoma that the brain was based on the brain's brain well-known brain tumors and caused by gelastic seizures (the gelastic meaning" laughter "in Greek).
"It was a great relief to know that it was really bad, but at the same time he thought it was quite confusing.
"All other areas of development were so amazing, as in his speech and understanding, but he laughed all the time," said Gemma.
"He had no effect on eating six solids, about a six-year-old week or a year-old, because he was surprised at the same time he laughed and laughed.
"His day would go on as usual, but laughter too."
Since Jack has been doing it for four years now, no one was worried.
Although he admits his parents, despite his nervous violence, he often realizes that cartoon TVs are joking. They appreciate being able to live a normal life.
"After the operation, we realized that Jack was not temporary, it was a curious feeling," Gemma said. "We were waiting to be seated around, but he did not do it, it was amazing for the first time."
Gemma added: "It's a happy little girl today and it's a real success story.
"He's a curious young man, he has a good mood and laughs.
"The hypothetical hamartoma is very rare and I want other parents to know the light at the end of the tunnel and things are better." Jack's life has changed and ours, and we're grateful. "
