Meet Destination Home Family #1

August 8, 2011: Hi!  The nurses & doctors have been taking good care of me at St. Louis Children’s Hospital but I’m looking forward to the day I can go home!  It will be the first time in my life that I’ve been outside.  I’ve got some breathing problems so I’ll be bringing my oxygen with me.  I’ve got a special tube in my belly to make sure I get enough to eat...I almost weigh 9 pounds so it must be working!  The doctors say I get to go home when my breathing is better so I’m working hard on getting strong!
