Short story gesucht

Liebe BXer,

ich bin auf der Suche nach einer ganz bestimmten amerikanischen Kurzgeschichte: Meine Erinnerung sagt mir, dass ich die mal in einer Anthologie gelesen habe ( Beste amerikanische short stories) oder so ähnlich.
Ich habe die Frage schon in chit-chat gestellt, die Hinweise auf Munoz oder Kafka scheinen mir nicht plausibel. Hier ist die story: Hinweise auf Autor oder Titel sind more than welcome....

A couple is looking forward to have a baby, when birthday comes, birth is given not as expected to a baby but to a very old man. Parents and doctors are very puzzled, the parents decide to treat the old man like a new-born child. Dress him like a baby and give him milk although he's moaning for liquor and cigars. As time goes by he gets younger and younger, there is a certain time where he fits perfectly into his parent's expectations, as he grows younger and younger ( physically) of course he starts complaining that he has to be among toddlers and playing silly games and so on. In the end he's fading away in a big white cloud I think.

Anyone got an idea? author? title?
Thanks for any hints...
