"Lord have mercy."
On May 5, 1965, my younger brother was born 6 weeks (+/) prematurely, at 4lbs. or so; he soon dropped to 2lbs., but was sent home to us in early June of that year. Today, he is a healthy, happily married 45 year old. He did have surgery a few times in his youth to correct potential problems, but everything worked out for him.
He was an elected official for a time and would speak of his premature birth and his faith in connection with his opposition to abortion.
