'It's Really A Miracle': Boy Who Spent First 1,000 Days Of Life In Hospital Goes Home
October 13, 2022
After spending his entire life in hospitals, Francesco Bruno is finally going home.
Francesco has seen nothing but the inside of hospital walls his whole life, relying on a ventilator to breathe and tubes to help him eat.
But on Tuesday, that all changed.
"We're very happy, nervous, tense, scared, overwhelmed, really happy, overjoyed. It's just a melting pot of emotions," said Francesco's father, Emanuele Bruno.
Francesco has a rare form of skeletal dysplasia that specifically impacts his ribs, making it difficult for his lungs to grow properly.
"They told us [when] he was going to be born, he was only going to live for 30 minutes. It's really a miracle he's with us today," said his mother, Priscilla Bruno.
For the last 1,000 days, Francesco's been in four hospitals in three different states across the US.
On Tuesday, he finally got to go home and be with his family. Francesco turns three in December.
