AUSTIN (KXAN)– On his journey to visit all the nice boys and girls around the world, Santa made a special stop at Seton Medical Center on Friday.

He brought some holiday cheer to premature babies and their families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Parents Edgar and Magdalena Caballero were watching over their twins who have been in the NICU since they were born on November 20.

The family says they plan to spend Christmas at the hospital, but they are thankful for the joy that Santa has brought.

“It lifted our spirits and, like I said, we’re thankful,” Edgar said. “I appreciate Seton –what they’re doing.”

They hope to be able to take their twins home in late January. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
