Yesterday Maddie was weened from her final medication which was a slight dose of a diuretic used in preemie cases to prevent moisture buildup on her lungs. She appears to be tolerating the diuretic change without any problems. For the past two and a half months everyone of Maddie’s diapers has undergone a series of tests. They will test her diaper this morning to note any differences with yesterdays outputs. Today Heather & Mike will be instructed by the staff on the home administration of Maddie’s Albuteral inhalation therapy treatments. Al Buteral sounds like the name of your 8th grade PE teacher but for Maddie it will be given as needed to keep her lungs clear. They will also be given instruction on how to add any meds and the vitamins she needs to her milk supply. Kirk
