It's no secret that Fiona the hippo faced tough early days when she was born premature.  But there are other, human, premies going through a similar ordeal. One-year-old Reid Wolfer was one of them, though one wouldn't guess it looking at him now. Reid was born premature and unable to eat. "It was 11 surgeries of them removing his intestines and then getting him to a place where he is now, where he's connected and able to survive," his mom, Beth Wolfer, said.  Reid had a team treating him at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.  "The staff at Children's was amazing," Wolfer said.
