‘Touch and Go’ Extreme Preemie Could Be Home by New Years | Video | TheBlaze.com.

Melinda Star Guido was born at 24 weeks gestation, a bit small for her age, at 290 grams.   She’s the second smallest preemie in the U.S. to be heading home, though she doesn’t go officially on record as a survivor until early January, when she’s slated to leave the hospital.  Melinda was due on Dec 15th (today), at which time she has grown to 8 times her birth weight.
