STRATFORD, Conn. -- Brittany Lohnes, the young Stratford mother who delivered her baby boy 10-weeks early while in a medically-induced coma, says she remembers very little of her time in the hospital, according to Connecticut News 12.

Lohnes, who came home last week, was diagnosed with double pneumonia when she was 30-weeks pregnant and was placed in a medically induced coma, said Connecticut News 12.

Baby Luke was delivered by cesarean section on March 12 and weighed only 3 pounds, 6 ounces. He went home April 13 in good condition.

Friends and family have set-up a GoFundMe page for donations to help with the thousands of dollars in medical bills the family is facing. So far, they have raised $21,000 of the $200,000 needed.

Lohnes said that she was thrilled to be home, added Connecticut News 12.
