Baby Julian was born prematurely at 22 weeks and 2 days. His mother, Karen, and Father, Antonio, were by his side nearly every day through the ups and downs of life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). After 155 days in the NICU Julian was able to finally go home to be with his family, including his eight-year-old sister. 

Saint Luke's enjoys celebrating all milestones that our premature babies reach and being discharged to go home is no different. All of Julian's care team lined the hallways to send him home in a special graduation ceremony.
