German baby born at 21 weeks goes home

the most premature baby born in europe, a 21 weeker, born weighing just 16 ounces has has gone home after 5 months in the nicu with “no indication that she will not be healthy.” not to be a doubting thomas, but 16 ounces seems mighty large for a 21 weeker. i was told by the neonatologist that <23 weeks is just flat-out biologically impossible. anything earlier than that is a mistake in conception dates.
