Treasuring Levi's "discharge day" from the NICU

2014-08-27 14:25:10 by Kate Detweiler, Patient Family, as posted on the blog.

leviOur son, Levi, was born one month early via emergency C-section on April 1. He was resuscitated at birth and transported immediately from Akron General to Akron Children's Hospital, where he received Cold Cap therapy for 72 hours.

We spent 17 days in the NICU. Now Levi is home and we are so grateful to Children's Hospital for their staff who continue to walk alongside us on this journey with compassion, understanding, and wisdom.

This video was created for us on "Discharge Day" and we treasure these photos that capture the joy of bringing our "Miracle Baby" home.

You can follow Levi's progress on Facebook at Pray for Levi Matthew Detweiler.
