Maddie update from Heather's dad

Yesterday Mike, as is his custom, entered the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and proceeded to wash his hands before seeing Maddie. While cleaning up one of the nurses approached him and asked if he was "looking for Maddie". This was a bit strange because Mike assumed she was in her usual spot. It turned out the nurses had taken her from her crib and were giving her sort of a farewell tour of the entire NICU. The doctors and nurses enjoyed seeing how big she is now that she's almost 6 pounds and has almost doubled her birth weight. They all said babies like Maddie are why they work under the high stress conditions of the NICU. She continues to eat all her bottle and doesn't need the Nasal Gastric feeding line to her stomach anymore. Maddie will be coming home soon. Kirk
