4-year-old who spent entire life in hospital goes home for Christmas
ST. LOUIS – A 4-year-old girl who has lived her entire life in a Missouri pediatric hospital has finally gone home, just in time for Christmas. According to KDSK, Phalynn Graham was born two months early, before her lungs could fully develop. Doctors at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital had to put her on a ventilator, and the constant medical care she required kept Phalynn in the hospital. She learned how to walk, talk and do all the other things children do, but never went home – until doctors cleared her Thursday, days before Christmas.
