Graduation Baby

23 Weeks. 550 Grams. 11 Months.

Born at 23 weeks gestation and 550 grams, this beautiful boy was admitted to the Henry Ford Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Five surgeries, multiple clinical challenges, and 11 months later, he is finally sent home! With mixed emotions, the staff helped prepare him for his 'graduation.'

"It wasn't on the best terms that I came to Henry Ford Hospital," said the patient's mother. "But the staff here reaffirms your faith in people. I will never forget the kindness they have showed me. They are more than staff to me… they have become my friends and family."
