We absolutely LOVE Harrison's quilt, it's so special, we will treasure it forever. Thank you all so much. We love seeing where the stitchers are from in the world, such a personal touch which makes it more special. Thank you for the lovely card too, Harrison is one very lucky boy xxx
Harrison became distressed during the birth and unfortunately delivery was delayed which resulted in Harrison suffering a hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy and requiring cooling treatment. Doctors did not expect Harrison to survive, we had all the family come to the hospital to meet Harrison and say goodbye. Luckily Harrison came through and has recently celebrated his 6th birthday.
Harrison had minimal brain activity, doctors said if he did survive that he would be severely impaired, unfortunately they were right. Harrison cannot walk, talk, feed, he has no trunk control and minimal head control. He had surgery on his kidneys, spine and hip & leg muscles as well as the more minor surgeries such as the peg and button.
Harrison has had a bumpy 6 years with lots of hospital stays, chest infections and surgeries but through all of this he has wowed us with his strength and cheeky personality. We have come close to losing Harrison along the way but thankfully he is still with us getting stronger by the year. Harrison lights up our life and fills everyone's hearts with love. His smile is beautiful and his laughter gets everyone laughing. Harrison is a happy, demanding, funny little boy who loves music, Postman Pat, cuddles and people's attention, he is very sociable. Harrison has more surgery in the future and I'm sure a bumpy road ahead but as long as he is happy and smiling we will get him through whatever the future holds
