Infant awaiting transplant

Friday, September 12, 2008

Drayke Alan Crom was supposed to have been born on July 19. Instead he came into the world 12 weeks premature.

Drayke was 11 inches long and weighed just 1 pound 4.7 ounces when he was born by Caesarean section on April 28. Doctors had kept his mother, Lorri King, 45, of Lewisburg, on bed rest for a month before the birth, hoping to postpone the delivery.
