Dylan Eli was born 11 weeks premature weighing just THREE pounds. He could not breathe or maintain a stable body temperature on his own.
"The list of ailments Dylan has overcome is long, but very common in premature infants," mother India Lipton said. "Very weak and unable to breathe without assistance, Dylan battled a dangerous bacterial infection for 101 days in the NICU."
He has had 15 brain surgeries and suffered from sensorineural hearing loss.
Nearly one year later, almost all of his issues have been resolved. This week, Dylan Eli's parents took him to be fitted for his first hearing aids.
This was his priceless reaction to hearing for the very first time...
