Massive thank you to everyone that contributed and put in the hard work towards Harrison's quilt, he was over the moon with it, it is a lovely looking quilt and such a speedy delivery in time for his two week stay in hospital next week. A quilt to cherish and use in the years ahead. Thank you!
When Harrison was born he had meconium ileus and had to be taken from Poole hospital to Southampton as he was very poorly. He ended up going through 2 operations as one failed to unblock his bowels, 9 blood transfusions, e coli, pseudomonas infection, a lung collapse and sepsis all before he was 6 weeks old. He got released from hospital when he was 8 weeks old and then went through a hectic first year as was in hospital a lot for IV antibiotics. He has had a few more blockages since but avoided surgery. He has had many hospital stays for IVs in his nearly 8 years of life, had a port fitted in 2015 which has made in-stays a lot better as cannulas and long lines didn't last too long with him. He will be getting a gastrostomy button fitted on the 3rd of Feb as his weight has been an on going battle, and respiratory infections have happened a lot and his lung function sits in the 80's when well. But in those nearly 8 years he never lets it stop him and always has a smile on his face even when he has to swallow daily tablets, 3 nebulisers a day and daily phsyio... He is my hero!
