Harrison is a precious three year old blonde haired, blue eyed happy baby boy. He was born on February 22, 2013 to Jennifer and Bobby Trott. Harrison was born full term at 39 weeks. At birth, Harrison had two holes in his heart, a murmur and Pulmonary Valve Stenosis. He was followed by Cardiologists in Montgomery and in Birmingham. By the age of 12 months, Harrison was dismissed because his holes had closed, his murmur had cleared and his Pulmonary Valve Stenosis was in a steady, manageable state. Harrison is the baby of his family. He has an older brother Barnes, who is 7 years old and an older sister, Emilyn, who is 5 years old. At the age of 2, Harrison began battling pneumonia and breathing difficulties. He had multiple hospital stays and made it to a special team of doctors in Birmingham to try and understand his medical situation. Harrison's pneumonia kept coming back and strangely, wasn't moving from the same spot in his lungs. After an exploratory surgery by three surgeons (ENT, Pulmonologist and Gastroenterologist), the doctors found no malformation in his anatomy causing the repeat pneumonia. Harrison was then diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia and asthma. His aspiration was causing fluids to go into his lungs keeping the sweet baby sick. With breathing treatments and a thickening gel in all liquid intake, Harrison gained strength over the next year and thankfully, stayed out of the hospital and carried on running, playing, laughing, growing and learning! At age 3, we felt it was time for Harrison to see a speech therapist. Because of his sickness, Harrison was behind a touch and we felt he needed some help to "break the seal" with his speech. With prayer and the guidance of friends, we were led to Easter Seals to meet Kathy Welch. Kathy was a Godsend. She was ready to help Harrison and was so encouraging that we could get him on the right path and moving along. Within two months, Harrison's speech had blossomed and his confidence in talking was noted by any and all around him. As parents and a family of Easter Seals, our hearts are forever grateful for the hard work, patience, kindness and love these sweet children are shown. Kathy and all of the therapists here are working hard but most importantly, outpouring love to these children. We are so proud of Harrison and how far he has come. We know we could not have done this without Easter Seals. We are forever grateful to Kathy Welch and the precious people here.
