Micropreemie Goes Home After 345 Days in NICU

Trevor Frolek was born a micropreemie, at just 23 weeks and weighing in at a little over a pound. After spending 345 days in the neonatal intensive care unit at a Fargo, North Dakota, hospital, he is a smiling, 20-pound baby — and he's finally home. His family and the medical staff celebrated his release with a party last week.

"It's just a complete miracle. The doctors and nurses have worked so hard to get him to this point. It's beyond amazing," his mom Becky Frolek told NBC's "Today."

The baby was due last December, but when Becky Frolek suddenly began cramping on Aug. 12, 2014, she and her husband rushed to the hospital. There, the tiny boy quickly came into the world.
