ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Some small hospital patients got a visit from the big guy in the red suit.
Santa Claus made his way through Phoebe's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Monday evening. He ventured from station to station holding some of the 39 babies being cared for by nurses and even posed for pictures with the infants.
Shayna Gatlin was excited for her newborn Lilly to see Santa. It makes the stay in the NICU a little brighter.
"It's rough. We're hoping she'll be home by Christmas. We're not completely sure yet. If not, we'll spend Christmas day here," said Gatlin.
Each baby got a tiny shirt that reads "My First Christmas".
