Tiniest Infant Ever Born At Naval Medical Center San Diego Goes Home (Video)

Jayce Odin Boelk came into this world weighing only 13 ounces, making him the smallest newborn in Naval Medical Center San Diego's history.

Jayce was born on October 11 to Marine Corporal Monica Lovings and former Marine Corporal Allen Boelk. The Micro Preemie spent the last four months in the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), gaining enough weight and strength for his homecoming on February 14.

Lovings said of being able to bring Jayce home:

“Taking our son home on Valentine’s Day is awesome; we thought this day would never come. The NICU staff gave us hope… they gave us the best support possible they were definitely on his side."

I've posted a video feature on Jayce, courtesy of San Diego television station KFMB-TV.
