Omaha World-Herald: Baby Angel Heading Home Soon

Published: June 6, 2015

Inside the neonatal intensive care unit, Berta Jimenez bottle-fed and burped her grandson as he stretched his hand toward her shoulder and settled into her embrace.

Are you full, my heart?” she whispered in Spanish.

Doctors at Methodist Women’s Hospital expect baby Angel to return home with his grandmother next week after a lengthy stay. Angel was delivered via C-section April 4, almost eight weeks after his mother was declared brain dead.

Reporter Katy Glover reports on Angel's approaching discharge in this Omaha World-Herald feature.
