Baby Korbin heading home soon

Month old Korbin Kennedy will be returning home to Walker County soon. Tuesday, he was released from the hospital.

Korbin's parents posted onto Prayers and Support for Korbin on Facebook, "Daddy signed the papers and KORBIN IS DISCHARGED!."

According to the page, the decision to discharge Korbin was made after doctors took another look at his back and taught his parents how to change the bandages.

Last week, Korbin underwent a skin graft at Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati to replace skin removed due to flesh eating bacteria. His parents believe{}it was contracted from a lumbar puncture.

The Kennedys will remain in Ohio for another week for follow up appointments. But Korbin is expected to make his homecoming at the end of next week.
