EverlyIt’s a GIRL! We are so blessed to announce our little girl, Everly Grace Harrison, born July 7, 2014.  A huge thanks to Leslie and all our wonderful friends at the Allen Birth Center for helping us achieve our natural home birth. Below is a brief version of Everly’s birth story!

The due date (July 5) came and went…and just like every expectant mom experience, I was certain this baby was never coming, even if I knew better!  The morning of July 7 around 3:30 am, I woke up with contractions and couldn’t sleep, so I decided to walk around to see if they were real. Sure enough, they stayed pretty consistent, so I woke up Jonathon about an hour later and had him time them.  By about 6:30 am, they were coming about every 4-5 minutes, so we called the midwife and she was on her way!

I was still preparing for a lot of work ahead, since my last labor was so long…and was so surprised and encouraged when I was already at a 6-7 cm, 80% effaced when midwife Leslie arrived!  Spent time laboring all around the house, squatting, swaying, walking, sitting…you name it, I probably did it!  Thankful for the support of a fantastic midwife, husband and doula who kept me positive and laboring like a champ.  Water breaking was my ticket and sure enough, after a handful of pushes later, baby was born into Jonathon’s arms at 11:45 am!

We were thrilled to hear “It’s a girl” and so was big sister, Delaney!  We are so in love and incredibly honored to be parents to these blessings God has given us!  Thank you to all of your well wishes, notes and gifts…it means so much to us and we are very grateful that you are a part of our extended family here at NDC!

We love sharing our patient’s stories with you…we are truly honored and thrilled to be helping Tristan on his journey to health!

tristan

My name is Tristan and I am a freshman at Cornerstone Christian Academy.  I am a typical teenager who loves to spend time with my friends, play video games and play football.  Most of my life I have suffered from asthma.  It has held my life back and I haven’t been who I want to be on the field because of the severity of my condition.  My parents took me from a very early age to a pediatric pulmonologist.  His answer for me was tons of prescriptions. I can’t begin to tell you how many prescriptions I have had in my 16 years of life!  They would give me temporary relief but left me feeling tired and shaky and I usually gained weight due to them. 

The past two years I have really struggled to breathe and my asthma seemed to be getting a bit worse.   I signed up to play basketball and football my freshman year and my asthma was such an issue.  My coaches were so understanding and we worked together in dealing with when and if I should need to come off the court to get my breathing under control.  I never want to come off the court or field because of asthma. So, it left me pretty discouraged and like there wasn’t an answer for me and my health issues. 

My mom started seeing Dr. Harrison a few months ago for some neck issues.  One afternoon they were talking about me and how my mom was left with no option but to make an appointment with the pulmonologist again.  I knew she and my dad were discussing this so I would hide my asthma attacks and go to my room and shut the door. I didn’t want to them to see how many I was having because I knew they were sending me back to the world of meds.  I would rather struggle for my breaths than to go back and be put on a plethora of drugs.  Dr. Harrison asked my mom if she had ever considered chiropractic care for me and if he could have a shot at helping me first. She obliged. 

I met with him and we formulated a plan. Dr. Harrison at the helm along with my mom and myself began my journey toward a healthy me.  I left his office that day so full of hope and knew inside this route was for me.  I actually cried on the way home I was so relieved and happy inside.  I can say that I have hardly had an issue with my asthma since seeing him.  He has given me inspiration through how he lives life as well as his practice.  I see him three times a week and am eating healthy.  I feel so great! I have lost weight and can now do an hour of cardio and not have to use my inhaler. My mom never made that appointment with the pulmonologist, I don’t need him now.  I give Dr. Harrison all the credit. Well, and God for leading my mom to their office.”

Chiropractic works! We expect miracles like this every day…thank you Tristan, you are an inspiration and being the reason we do what we do!
