Baby Adrianne Martin left Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital Tuesday after spending the first six weeks of her life there while she was treated for a rare condition called Pierre Robin Sequence in which she can swallow her own tongue and suffocate. Her prognosis is for a full recovery. Her parents, Bethar Meyer and Chad Martin are taking her home to Poplar Bluff.
