Vacherie newborn spends first Christmas in NICU

As many families reflect on their blessings this Christmas, one from Vacherie is extra thankful this holiday. For several weeks, their newborn has been in intensive care at Children's Hospital.

There are about 18 babies in the NICU fighting their own fight, including one three-week-old, who almost didn't make it through the delivery.

"He's definitely a strong, little man," said his mother, Britney Schexnayder.
