Becky Frolek was just 23 weeks pregnant when she knew something was wrong. And her worst fear was realized when she gave birth to son Trevor nearly four months premature.
Weighing just one pound, six ounces, the newborn was so tiny that his father Bo was able to fit his wedding ring around the baby's foot. Since then, the preemie has spent 345 days at Essentia Health St. Mary's Children's Hospital in Fargo, N.D., in what his parents call one "roller coaster" year.

"From the night we didn’t know he was going to make it to now is just pretty special," Bo told FOX News. "The doctor told us...we were going to have our good days and we're going to have our bad days."
But now, Trevor is a chubby-cheeked tot who got to go home for the first time last month. "I'm nervous, excited. I’m sure there’ll be tears," Becky, who's expecting another baby, admitted at the time. "I hope I have what it takes."

Before Trevor headed home, the nurses who took care of him threw a going-away party. "A lot of days we left here and were not sure we would see him again," nurse Erin Kuehl shared. "To see him do well, this is the best reward we could ask for."
