Oliver Rodriguez has spent 515 days at Hennepin Health. Doctors say it is the longest stay they can remember.
But he is finally going home with his family. Doctors and nurses who cared for him threw a 'graduation party' on Tuesday.
Oliver was born early, at 25 weeks and immediately was admitted into the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit on July 20, 2017.
His lungs were not fully formed. Through an Interpreter, his mother told KSTP about the challenges he faced.
"There was a moment when we thought he was not going to be with us. But he was a miracle," she said.
