Doc Now Works With Nurse Who Helped Save Him as a Baby

When the doctor called his name,"it sounded very familiar, "said the nurse".

When Vilma recognised my name, it truly sank in that I was one of these babies.

The man in question - Brendan Seminatore - is now a second-year paediatric neurology resident at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. "To confirm my suspicion, I asked him if his dad was a police officer".

Seminatore weighed only two pounds and six ounces - the size of a small pineapple - when he was rushed in April 1990 after his mother's emergency C-section to the neonatal intensive care unit known as the NICU (pronounced NICK-U).

But last month, she saw a young Intern made a decision to find out who he is, Vilma told the Mercury News.

"A chance encounter at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford has led to a heart-warming reunion between nurse and patient", a post on the hospital's Facebook page read.

Seminatore spent 40 days in NICU as an infant, checking out a healthy 5 pounds, 2 ounces. "And there was a big silence, and then he asked me if I was Vilma, I said yes". Seminatore was finally able to leave the hospital with his parents.

"She cares deeply for her patients, to the point that she was able to remember a patient's name nearly three decades later, " Seminatore added. But unlike most babies, one day years later he returned.

He was shocked she remembered him, especially because she takes care of so many babies in the unit.
