BUENOS AIRES -- Argentina's "miracle baby," born premature and declared dead in April and then found alive 12 hours later at the morgue, has been cleared to go home, the hospital said Thursday.
Luz Milagros, whose middle name means "miracles" in Spanish, "is stable," with a tube for feeding and respiratory assistance "to help avoid fatigue," said the director of Resistencia's pediatric hospital, Juan Mario Jacobassi.
The 5-month-old left the hospital around noon, in the arms of her mother Analia Boutet. She remains fragile, and her care will continue at home.
