Theophylline Free Day Zero

After 25 days at the NICU, Hailey is off of the theophylline, the oral drug that makes her remember to breath. One of the requirements for going home is to be theophylline free for seven days. They have stopped giving Hailye the drug today, it will be several days before the drug levels in her blood reach a nontherapeutic level.

I have fed Hailey her second bottle today at 8:30 p.m. That makes three meals in a roll in a bottle for Hailey. When the doctor’s do there rounds they say Miss Jones is learning how to eat. We could almost be there.
