Harrison's Story

Harrison was just 3 weeks old when he was first admitted to MassGeneral Hospital for Children following an unexpected tracheotomy. His care has spanned 8 pediatric subspecialties and included repair of a hiatal hernia and a re-do of a Nissen Fundoplication—a surgical procedure to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease. Harrison's mom tells their story in this wonderful letter.
