Nearly one year after he was born with a very rare genetic condition, Baby Max was finally discharged from Advocate Children’s Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.
Young Max spent his first year of life receiving treatment at the Park Ridge, 일리노이, hospital before his parents were given notice on May 23, 2022, that their miracle child was free to go home.
In an interview with Fox News Digital, 박사. Michael Cappello, Advocate Children’s neonatologist and vice chairman of pediatrics, dubbed Max “mayor of the NICU” — because of the child’s amazing charisma.
“You could not turn away from him,” said the physician. “He was really a huge part of our NICU family.”
