    Oh my God!
    That ballpen really gives some scale. While I normally never know how tiny premies really are, here we can see, grab a ballpen, put in on our desk in front of us and go all :shock: over this girl's tiny-ness!

    So happy to hear she can go home soon.

    A miracle baby indeed! Surviving such a tiny birthweight...she's definitely a fighter!

    Wow, that picture literally took my breath away. What an amazing story and that little girl certainly has a lot of strength. I can't imagine how hard these past months must have been for her parents as well.

    They look like Gummy Bears to me....
    Really feel sorry for the little lady and all the operations and complications she'll have to put up with though.

    This is amazing. I didn't see the feet picture before. WOW! And I thought my 1 lb. 15 oz. boys were small. She certainly is a fighter, indeed.

    My cousin was under 14oz and survived. She has a few health problems and was developmentally behind for the first several years... now she is one of the smartest in her class!
    There is so much hope for this baby... I wish all the best for this family.

    I just can't get over the feet picture. It looks like the person's fingers are going to break her little legs! Unbelievable.

    Wow. And they arent even keeping in the hospital that long. I can't believe this. When my cousin was born like 3 months premature weighing 3 lbs 9.5 oz they kept her for over a month in an incubater. I think it's because their skin is too thin.
    How can this little girl even breathe. This is crazy.
    I bet she'll go on to do great things.

    They told my cousin her little girl would be behind her peers also, and of course, she's a smart little cookie!!!

    These little guys always prove doctors wrong.
