Villanueva told KOAT: ‘It’s hard seeing that she can’t eat like she’s supposed to and can’t have food yet, just through the [feeding] tube. But other than that I’m glad she lived through it all.”

“She’s just kind of a play-it-by-ear baby,” Gordon added.

“Everybody we’ve seen says it’s a miracle she’s alive.”
